14,000 Phillies Commentary: As with nearly all other high-end Topps products, the base set is nothing more than a vehicle for the autograph and memorabilia inserts that really drive sales. Packs of cards cost $55-$60 and were guaranteed to contain one autograph/memorabilia card. At least Topps put together a very attractive, simply designed base set for this issue; the same cannot be said for a lot of its other high-end issues.
