Topps Heritage is one of the major sports cards products of the Topps company. The primary aim of the brand is to re-create the look, feel and theme of the old Topps sets only with modern players and stars.
The first Topps Heritage set was the 2000-01 Topps Heritage basketball set. This retro themed set was a hit with collectors and Topps began producing it in the other major sports. The basketball sets did not have the same impact as the baseball ones and after the 2001-02 set, Heritage was dropped from the annual basketball line.

After the success of the previous year's basketball set, Topps released the 2001 Heritage baseball set. Its design mirrored the iconic 1952 Topps set. It was an instant hit with collectors and became one of the mainstay brands in Topps' annual product line. The same year, Bowman Heritage was also created.
Topps would go on to produce many other retro themed baseball card sets.
Based on the success of the basketball sets, Topps Heritage Football was also produced. However, the set was only carried in the product line for two years, but the brand was resurrected in 2005 and 2006.
Topps produced Heritage sets for Hockey in 2001-02 and 2002-03.
Topps also produces cards of the wrestlers of the WWE in a Heritage style based on old baseball card set designs.
