– Base cards Nos. 426-500 are short-printed and can be found 1:3 packs.

– There is also a blue tint variation (found at Wal-Mart) and a red tint variation (found at Target) featuring the same subjects. These are also short-printed.

– Collectors can also find green refractor parallels (100 subjects) that are only found in Green Refractor Hot Boxes. These Hot Boxes are 1 per hobby case.

– And at retail outlets, collectors can find a special 100-card black bordered parallel. They are exclusive to the $8.99 three-pack blister.

– There are six short-printed error variations, which mimic the original set:
* Alex Rodriguez (Photo Reversed w/ bat in left hand…image attached)
