On the left, the Target-exclusive Stand-Ups insert consists of 15 modern day stars. The Discs set on the left can be found in Walmart packs and it shares the same checklist as the Stand-Ups. For me, these designs are far superior to the standard inserts found in Heritage and the fact that they pay homage to cards that never were is what pushes them over the top. If anyone in the cardsphere has any of these lying around that need a good home, I'm your guy. At the current moment, what you see is what I've got so I'm a long way from finishing either of these sets. You gotta start somewhere though, right? Thanks for reading.

2016 Heritage Inserts Actually Worth Collecting
I haven't collected(or should I say attempted to collect) a Heritage set since the very first set was released back in 2001. There is just too many SPs and if I want to get crazy about it(and I totally would) too many variations to chase down. Add to that, the inserts have basically been the same for the last 15 years and there isn't much reason for me to do much more than grab a few packs(or blasters or hanger boxes) each year. However, lost amid the early scramble to identify and catalog this year's crop of errors and variations(made more difficult since they all have the same code printed on the card back) are two retail only inserts that pay tribute to two 1967 test issues that were never formally released. Check out this article for more info on those.
