The base set consists of 440 cards, 220 cards in each series. Series 2 by far has more valuable rookies than Series 1.

Key Cards

Rookie Cards include Pat Burrell, Adam Dunn, CC Sabathia, Alfonso Soriano, Mark Mulder, Tim Hudson, Rafael Furcal, Joe Nathan, Matt Holliday, David Eckstein, Josh Hamilton, and Carl Crawford.


Surprisingly, there no reported uncorrected errors in the set.

Parallel Sets

There were two parallel sets inserted into packs. The International parallels were inserted 1 per pack as they had been included since 1997. A Gold Parallel set was also included but only 99 serial numbered sets were produced. These cards were inserted 1:111 series 1 and 1:59 series 2 packs.

Autographed cards of various rookies and prospects were once again included as insert cards. 70 cards consisting of Blue, Silver and Gold varieties were inserted into packs in both Series 1 and 2. Unlike 1997 and 1998 autograph sets, the players included in the checklist began to be less star-studded. There are very few rookie autographs included, and none of the big stars.
