2002 Heritage-in honor of the very popular 1953 Topps set.

This set is modeled after the 1953 Topps. In 1953, Topps chose to use painted portraits to make their cards for that year true works of art. Topps Heritage followed suit and gave their 2002 cards an artistic look.

Also similar to the original 1953 set, the Topps Heritage design is highlighted by a nice color team logo on the front of each card, along with a red or black box in which the players name, position and team are displayed. The box is either red for American League teams, or black for National League teams.

Each base card has a trivia question on the back, along with the players facsimile signature, another resemblance to the original 1953 Topps counterpart

In addition, there was an unannounced variation in which 10 cards were printed in both day and night versions.  There are no cubs with nightime SP .
