1999 Topps Baseball Cards
The 1999 Topps Baseball Card Set consists of 462 standard size cards that were issued in 2 series. In tribute to Mickey Mantle, there is no #7 card.
Two unique subsets in the 1999 Topps set are the 70 (slightly) different variations for the #220 Mark McGwire card, and 66 for #461 Sammy Sosa. Each card commemorated a home-run, from the exciting record-breaking HR race in 1998. The base set is considered complete with any one of these variations.
The 1999 Topps Baseball Card Set had a weak class of rookie cards, with only notables being: #437 A.J. Burnett & #442 Matt Holiday.
