The set is broken into five subsets (Expressionists, Exhibitions, Impressions, Portraits, and Permanent Collection), each with a different design (front and back). The card fronts are printed on a canvas-like substance and feature a color player photograph and a foil backing. The backs feature a small color player photograph, 1997 player stats by month, personal stats, and a paragraph with player highlights called Frame This!

All 150 base cards are available in the following parallels.

  • Player's Private Issue (serial-numbered to 250 copies)
  • Gallery Proofs (serial-numbered to 125 copies)

NOTE: All Player's Private Issue cards feature the same design, which is unique to this parallel. Gallery Proofs, on the other hand, have the same designs as the base cards.

Player's Private Issue Auction

Jeff-Bagwell.jpg?id=02f82ec6-7cf1-46ba-a4e1-dda244b85e67&size=original&side=front&.jpg Jeff-Bagwell.jpg?id=02f82ec6-7cf1-46ba-a4e1-dda244b85e67&size=original&side=back&.jpg

Seeded at the rate of one-per-pack, Player's Private Issue Auction parallels the entire 150-card set. All 150 cards are available in four different "point values": 25, 50, 75, and 100 points. TCollectors could then use their Auction cards to "bid" on one of ten different pieces of framed artwork (one for each of the following players: J. Gonzalez, M. McGwire, C. Ripken, Jr., M. Piazza, C. Jones, F. Thomas, D. Jeter, K. Griffey, Jr., A. Rodriguez and N. Garciaparra). Point totals were doubled, however, when the player featured on the Auction card was the same player actually being bid on.

The auction period ran from July 4th through October 16th, 1998. During that time period, collectors had to mail in their accumulated bid points and specify which of the ten pieces they were bidding upon. An "800" number was available for collectors to check upon the status of the current high bid, allowing them the opportunity to submit additional bid points prior to the October 16th closing date. Winners were notified 30 days after the closing date. Auction point cards were not returned.

Printing Plates

1998 Topps Gallery was one of the first Topps products that contained Printing Plate parallels. Unlike future Plates, the four front AND four back plates were inserted.
