The Base Set of 2002 Topps Archives Baseball is made up of 200 cards with no variations or short prints. The set features major stars and Hall of Famers. Topps changed the backs of most of the cards to include the stats from that selected year. Also, in many of the cards, the text was changed to reflect the best year rather than using the original verbiage. For example Ryne Sandberg's card is a reprint of his 1990 Topps card but includes his stat line from 1990. Also the original card number is still included on the card back, the new card number xxx/200 is shown in the reprint language on the card back.
