The 2018 Topps Heritage design was based on the 1969 Topps set. The set features non affiliated team color circles in the top corner with the player's name and position. The set also features a yellow team color across the bottom. There are double rounded borders around the player's image and that summarizes the basic concept of this design.
1969 marked the 100th anniversary of professional baseball.
Topps used that anniversary to create a 100th Anniversary foil stamp mark with the MLB Batter Logo on the card. This is an homage that 1969 marked 100 years. These gold foil stamps have no serial numbers, but are extremely rare.
On a completely unrelated note, please don't forget to show off those 3D cards and join my contest.
