As you can see from the video, the cards look really nice. They are modeled after the 1960 Topps set which was the last major set from Topps to be printed horizontally. Similar to the 2008 Heritage set, the 2009 set will feature 425 base cards plus 75 short prints, plus all of the inserts and parallel sets. The main insert sets are also the same--the 15 card New Age Performers set, the 10 card Then and Now set, the 10 card Baseball Flashbacks set and the 10 card News Flashbacks set.
At this point, Topps plans on following up the regular 2009 Heritage release with a High Numbers release, just like with the 2008 set. No word on how the chrome set will be divided yet. In 2008, it was split between three products and consisted of 300 cards. The first 100 were found in regular Topps Heritage packs, the second 100 were found in Topps Chrome packs and the last 100 were found in Topps Heritage High Numbers packs.
