2008 Topps Chrome
Topps has introduced a new twist in 2008 by expanding the popular Topps Heritage chrome set and splitting the distribution between Topps Heritage, Topps Chrome and Topps Heritage High Numbers. The entire set is 300 cards, with cards 1-100 being inserted into Topps Heritage packs, cards 101-200 being included with Topps Chrome packs, and cards 201-300 found inside packs of 2008 Topps Heritage High Numbers. Cards 101-200 still are referred to as Topps Heritage chromes, are serially numbered the same (#/1959 for regular chromes and #/559 for refractor chromes) and are still modeled after the 1959 Topps cards. Topps chrome cards continue to grow in popularity and show no signs of slowing down.
