1995 Topps Traded & Rookies is a 165-card set released in late 1995 and features rookies, draft picks and players who had been traded. Unlike previous "Topps Traded" sets, the 1995 version was distributed exclusively in pack form. After fifteen consecutive years, this would be the final Topps Traded set; however, Topps would revive Traded in 1999.

Subsets featured are: At the Break (1T-10T) and All-Stars (156T-164T). Notable Rookie Cards include Carlos Beltran and Hideo Nomo.

It should be noted that there are three different cards of Hideo Nomo in this set. Card #40T, the only card in '95TT&R done in the style of the "Star Watch" subset, is considered his "true" rookie.

Juan LeBron/Carlos Beltran Errors

With their first two picks in the 1995 MLB First Year Player Draft, the Kansas City Royals selected two high school players from Puerto Rico: Juan LeBron and Carlos Beltran. Unfortunately, Topps confused the two and put Beltran on LeBron's '95 Topps Traded card and vice versa. While Beltran went on to have an All-Star career, LeBron never made it past Class-AA.

Topps never corrected the error, and card #18T (the one labelled "Carlos Beltran" but sporting the photo of Juan LeBron) is considered Beltran's "true" rookie. Juan LeBron's card (#12T), which has Beltran's photo, does sell for a premium, but is NOT Carlos Beltran's rookie card.

Little is known about the 1995 Topps Traded & Rookies proof cards. The only known sample has the photo of Shawn Green used on his 1995 Topps Traded card (#13T) but the back is the one used in the regular 1995 Topps set. There may be more cards so all additional information is appreciated.

At the Break Power Boosters

This 10-card insert set partially parallels the "At the Break" subset. All ten cards are printed on thick stock and have diffraction foil (i.e. atomic refractor) fronts. The Power Boosters were seeded at the rate of 1:36 (one-per-box) and packs containing one have only 10 cards.
