2008 Topps Indiana Jones Heritage Trading Cards

The original Indiana Jones trilogy doesn't have a lot of love in the hobby. Sure, Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Temple of Doom both got sets back in the day. And while still known today, there's not the same affinity with them as some others like Star Wars. 2008 Topps Indiana Jones Heritage trading cards bridge the past and the present, offering a checklist that combines the original three films alongside modern innovations like autograph and sketch cards. The result is comprehensive albeit tough to land something fancy at the box level.

The 90-card base set has sections dedicated to all three films, including the first Topps cards of The Last Crusade. Each has 27 story cards. There are also eight poster art cards and a checklist. The film cards are based on the design Topps used for Raiders of the Lost Ark with different color schemes differentiating them.

The base set has a Gold parallel set. These are essentially the same as the regular cards except they are serial numbered to 500 on the back.

Hobby boxes are supposed to have either an autograph or a sketch card with original art. However, it was not uncommon for boxes to be missing the promised hit. While Topps was able to replace the missing cards at the time of its release, it's unlikely they could do anything today.

The 2008 Topps Indiana Jones Heritage Autographs checklist includes just about every major character in the original trilogy not named Sean Connery. That being said, most of the top characters have very few copies. Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are the toughest with less than ten cards each.

Sketch card quality varies greatly. Some artists went to great length to include a lot of detail and even color with their artwork. Others are scribbles, often repeated over and over again. Mention the term "Waterhouse Monkey" to anyone who collected this set and they're going to know right away what you're referencing -- a Ryan Waterhouse sketch of a monkey that seemed to show up at least once per case.

2008 Topps Indiana Jones Heritage has a very limited amount of retail packs and boxes. These have exclusive magnets done in the style of vintage stickers. Today, these magnets are extremely tough to find in any quantity.

This was the first of three sets of Indiana Jones trading cards released in 2008, the year Kingdom of the Crystal Skull came out. All three were heavy on sketch cards, which has kept secondary market prices in check. Boxes, once plentiful, have now dried up for the most part.
