Cardboard cousins: '62 Topps/'11 Topps Heritage Minors

I have a lot of 2011 Topps Heritage Minors - not the big stars but all the commons people get rid of when trying to pull Trout, Harper, Machado, etc. I was able to make a couple of links to my '62 cards.

#162 Hot Corner Guardians. I'm sure it's a coincidence but at least they paired it with a third baseman. Francisco Martinez played eight seasons in the minor but never reached above AA.

#188 I just liked that two middle infielders got matched up with interesting fielding poses. Chuck Hiller played eight years in the major and is best known for a grand slam in the 1962 World Series. Tony Wolters converted to catching and has been in the majors with the Rockies since 2016.
