Topps believes it may have produced one of the greatest historical autographed cards to date – the dual autograph featuring Barack Obama and Jackie Robinson.

This card and several other pieces of Americana will highlight the all-new new and exciting Topps American Heritage.

American Heritage will fuse the popular Topps Heritage brand name, a selection of classic Topps designs as well as new designs and tell the story of the U.S. through sports, politics, the arts and pop culture.

In Addition, this great looking set will be accompanied by an array of autographs, relic cards and cut signatures from every U.S. President. Each hobby box will guarantee two hits.
