This 20-card set is done in the style of the 1953 Topps set and features the artwork of James Fiorentino. At the time of the product's release, collectors responded well to the 1953-style and would set the stage for the retro-themed products like Topps Heritage that would drive The Hobby in the early 2000s.

Hank Aaron, who did not appear in the 53 Topps set, has a "Card That Never Was" in this set.

A Heritage Proof parallel printed on foil-fronted polystyrene cardstock is also available.

Auction Points

For the second straight year Topps ran an Auction Points promotion within the Gallery brand. The original artwork for each of the 20 1999 Topps Gallery Heritage insert cards, plus the four different colored printing plates (Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow) used to produce the Heritage cards, attractively framed together, were the prizes.

Collectors were encouraged to accumulate as many points as possible utilizing seven different points cards - all of which were randomly seeded into packs as follows:

  • 25, 50, or 75 points: one-per-pack
  • 100 points: 1:12/packs
  • 1000 points: 1:240/packs
  • 5000 points: 1:640/packs
  • Double Points: 1:640/packs

Once a collector had accumulated as many points as possible, he or she had to then decide upon which of the pieces of Heritage artwork to vie for. All point cards had to be sent in to Topps by October 15th, 1999. As the deadline neared, it was typical to see transactions for tens of thousands of points trading hands in bulk lots for 1/10th or 1/20th of a penny per point.

The backs of each Auction Point card have one of six set checklists.
