Each Rookie is serial-numbered to 2000 copies for each individual pattern. The aggregate number of Rookie cards issued for each player is 40,000 (2000 cards X 20 patterns) -- which has depressed the long-run value of these cards. The fact that three of the five players featured (Salazar, Sneed, and Asadoorian) never played in a Major League game and only one (Myers) had a solid Major League career was also a factor.

On the original sell-sheet solicited by Topps, only the five "colored" patterns (#16-#20) were to have been serial-numbered, while patterns #1-#15 were to have been seeded at the rate every other pack.
