Similar to the Mark McGwire card in Series One, to commemorate Sammy Sosa's 1998 season, card #461 was issued in 66 different variations (one for each home run) to honor his 1998 season. Cumulatively, the production of #461 is equal to any other base set card; individually, each card was produced in 1/66th the supply of the other base cards. A set is considered complete with only one.

MVP

MVP is a 416-card partial-parallel to the regular Topps set. Cards 200-242 (Draft Picks and Prospect, checklists, and the Mark McGwire Home Run card) was not included in the Series One set. The Draft Picks and Prospects were included in Series Two, but still, neither the checklists nor the Sammy Sosa Home Run Card is included.

The front of the card features the same photo as the basic issue card but is adorned with a bold gold foil MVP Promotion logo. The back features contest guidelines for the Topps MVP Promotion. If the featured player was awarded player of the week status (as determined by Topps) his card was then redeemable at season's end for a special set of all the weekly winners. Only 100 of each MVP Promotion card was produced. The exchange deadline to redeem winning cards was December 31st, 1999. Winning prize cards were mailed out between February 15th, 2000 and April 30th, 2000.

The winning cards were the following numbers (which correspond to the regular Topps set): 35, 52. 70, 96, 101, 125, 127, 139, 159, 198, 248, 265, 290, 292, 300, 315, 340, 346, 350, 352, 355, 360, 365, 416, and 418. Since Topps destroyed these Winner exchange cards once they received them, they're in noticeably shorter supply than other cards from this set. Despite this fact, no noticeable premiums in secondary trading levels have been detected for these cards

Following in the footsteps of Mickey Mantle (1996 Topps), Willie Mays (1997 Topps), and Roberto Clemente (1998 Topps), Topps reprinted all 27 of Nolan Ryan's Topps cards as an insert in 1999 Topps. The 14 odd numbered cards were inserted into Series One packs, while the 13 even numbered ones were in Series Two.

The cards are also available in Finest and Finest Refractor parallels, with the even cards in Series One and the odds in Series Two.
