2000 Topps Baseball is a 478-card set released in two equivalent series of 239 cards. Series One was released in December, 1999, while Series Two was issued in April, 2000.
The set includes the following subsets: Prospects (201-208/441-448), Draft Picks (209-220/449-455), Season Highlights (217-221/456-460), Post Season Highlights (222-228), 20th Century's Best (229-235/468-474), Magic Moments (236-240/475-479) and League Leaders (461-467).
The Magic Moments cards are similar to, but not as extreme as, the Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa Home Run cards in 1999 Topps. Instead of making 70 or 66 different versions of each card, only five different versions of each card were made. Individually, each Magic Moment variation was produced in one-fifth the quantity of any other base card. Collectively, the production of the five Magic Moments cards for each player equal that of any other base card. A set is considered complete with only one of each Magic Moment card.
Card number 7 was not issued as Topps continues to honor the memory of Mickey Mantle who wore that number during his career.
