Description

1998 SP Authentic is a 198-card set released by Upper Deck in the summer of 1998. The brand was renamed from "SP" due to the fact that, for the first time, each Hobby box yielded an authentic on-card autograph.

Distribution

24 packs per box, five cards per pack (MSRP: $4.98). Hobby only.
