All My Heywards - 2011 Topps Lineage 1964 Giants

2011 Topps Lineage 1964 Giants #TG3

2011 Lineage was an absolute shitshow of a set, but the one thing they got right was the retro inserts. This isn't an insert per se, more of a box topper, but it gets the 1964 Giants set right. At first glance the photo on the front looks odd. Weird angle, odd glowy background, deranged cropping. Thing is, a bunch of the cards from the original set are awkward in exactly that way. The back is a work of beauty, differing from the originals only by trademark bugs and a line of legalese. Jason Heyward described as precocious? Classic.
