The set contains the subsets: Lineup Leaders (151-160) and Rookies (161-195). The only notable rookie is Livan Hernandez.

Claim to Fame

This 20-card set features players whom Pinnacle Brands believed had the potential to make the Hall of Fame. The fronts are die-cut in the shape of a Hall of Fame plaque. The back of each card states that only 2100 copies of each card were produced, however, none of the cards are serial-numbered.

A Sammy Sosa Sample card was distributed to dealers and hobby media to preview the set.
