Plans are underway for 2015 Topps Heritage Baseball, set to release during spring training next year with the design focused around the year 1966.
Once again, there will be 24 packs per hobby box at an expected retail cost of around $75-80 to start.
Each Heritage box will contain one autograph or relic card as well as a box loader that could include Ad Panels, three-card strips with an ad on the back, original 1966 Topps cards foil-stamped with a 50th anniversary logo and 1966 Oversized Punch Boards, styled after the vintage Topps Punch Out game with an insert version numbered to 50, Jumbo Patches numbered to 25, autographs numbered to 10 and autographed Jumbo Patches numbered to 10.

Parallels include Blue backs, Minis (# to 100), Chrome Variation, Chrome Refractor, black-bordered Chrome Refractors (# to 66) and gold-bordered Chrome (# to 5).
Heritage Clubhouse Collection Autograph Relics are hand-numbered to 25 with dual relics numbered to 10 while Flashbacks autograph relics are numbered to 25. There are also 1/1 cut signatures.
