This 150 card set was issued in six card packs with an SRP of $3. The packs were issued 24 packs to a box with eight boxes to a case. Cards numbered 102-150 were short printed in these ratios: Prospects from 102-141 were issued one every 2.5 packs, rookies from 102-141 were issued one every 3.5 packs and cards numbered 142-150 were issued one every five packs. Card number 50 was supposedly only available to people who could show their dealers that that was the only card they were missing for the set. However, a retail version of that card was issued so many collectors did not get to share in the surprise of finding out the missing card was Willie Mays. In addition, a special Ichiro card was randomly included in packs, these cards were good for either an American or a Japanese version of what would become card number 151. The deadline to receive the Mays HTA version was October 24th, 2001 while the Ichiro exchange deadline was June 30th, 2003.
