Subsets include Diamond Kings (1-27) and Rated Rookies (28-47).

Cards marked as SP (short printed) from 648-660 are more difficult to find than the other 13 SP’s in the lower 600s. These 26 cards listed as SP were apparently pulled from the printing sheet to make room for the 26 Bonus MVP inserts. Six of the checklist cards were done two different ways to reflect the inclusion or exclusion of the Bonus MVP cards in the wax packs.

Checklist cards found in packs account for the Bonus MVPs while the ones found in factory sets do not.

The key Rookie Cards in this set are Roberto Alomar, Jay Buhner, Ellis Burks, Ken Caminiti, Tom Glavine, Mark Grace and Matt Williams. For a while, the Gregg Jefferies card was one of the hottest Rookie Cards of the late-80s.
