The 2002 set mimics Bowman 1954. That seems odd, since this is the second year of Bowman Heritage, meaning they should have copied the second year of Bowman, 1949. I wonder why Topps decided to skip ahead to 1954.
The card design is very basic -- a picture of the player and a colored box with his autograph. Most of the signatures on the Cubs cards are fairly legible. That surprised me. I thought I'd have a harder time figuring out the names.
Here's a side-by-side look at the originals and the Heritage versions.
The sets consists of 440 cards and one fourth of the cards were short-printed. There are
17 Cubs and seven of there were SPs. That is almost half, which seems a bit unfair!
