A Little Background on 2007 Bowman Heritage Baseball

The graphics guys at Topps must have had a little free time on their hands recently. Either that or they got their boss' attention after the stunt they pulled with the 2007 Topps Series One Derek Jeter card that was all the buzz when it was first released last spring. Regardless, 2007 Bowman Heritage Baseball has a little fun with some of the background photos.

The set has some interesting and sometimes familiar backgrounds on certain cards. In addition to the backgrounds, a couple of players have added text to their photo including “Joba Rules” on Joba Chamberlain’s card. Following is a list of the cards with a description for each:
