Topps Heritage Flashes Back to 1956
The year was 1956. Don Larsen pitched a perfect game in the World Series,
'I Love Lucy' was the top rated TV show and kids everywhere were treasuring,
trading and flipping their Topps Baseball cards.
Little did these kids know that one day this particular baseball card set
would go down in hobby history as one of the all-time greats.
And now Topps and collectors will relive the magic of 1956 with the award
winning Topps Heritage Baseball.
2005 Topps Heritage, celebrating today's stars on the classic 1956 Topps
design, features a stunning base set that spans 475 cards. This set builder's
dream has the look, the feel and even the smell of the original.
The popular Chrome (#'d to 1956) and Refractor (#'d to 556) Parallels
continue while an all-new Black Chrome Refractor (#'d to 56) makes its
debut. And 'New Age Performers', 'Then and Now' and 'Flashbacks' Inserts
return as well.
A feature that draws Autograph Card collectors to Heritage - the beloved Real
One Autographs, includes greats such as Hank, Duke, Yogi and Mr. Cub and
players who were pictured on a Topps card for the last time in 1956. Each
player has signed 200 cards in blue ink and an additional 56 cards in red
ink. Topps has also seeded seven unique 1 of 1 cut signature cards
featuring the likes of Dwight Eisenhower and other figures from 1956.
And for the Relic Card fans, Heritage is stacked once again. Not only will
Clubhouse Collection Relics and Flashbacks Relics feature the brightest
stars in the game, but they will also include an autographed version
numbered to 25. Clubhouse Collection will also include 3 Dual Relic Cards.
And the best insert of them all - STICKS OF GUM - for your pack opening
