One thing of note: Jason Heyward is listed as a member of the Cardinals for card number 201, one number higher than pal Freddie Freeman. However,  JHey is shown as a member of the Braves in the Clubhouse Collection. I had not planned on picking up any of the CC relic cards, but will probably make an exception so that I can have one last Heritage card of the right fielder.

It will be interesting to see the photo selection Topps used for the cards featuring Braves players. The 1966 set featured many Braves players without hats, since the team's home for the upcoming season was up in the air as the National League spent the 1965 offseason and much of the 1966 season in the courtrooms, battling the state of Wisconsin over the team.
