2021 Topps Heritage Blaster

This year's Heritage saw the brand re-use the 1972 Topps design.  That's not the best design out there, but interesting enough.  I managed to find a blaster at one point early on.  Here's the Red Sox:

1.  Alex Verdugo.  Verdugo had a decent season this last year, but has some room to grow as a player before he reaches his full potential.  Barring a shocking trade, it appears he will be given that opportunity in 2022.  

2.  Jackie Bradley Jr.  One of the best features of the 1972 set was the In Action subset, which was resurrected here.  I am happy to see JBJ back with Boston, having just been acquired in a deal with the Brewers a few days ago.  Given his offensive struggles, there is no guarantee he will be a starter, but his defense will always make him an intriguing option.  He was one of my favorite players, and I am glad he's back, even though he cost Hunter Renfroe.
