The cards were distributed almost exclusively at hobby shops in 3 card packs (1 base and 2 GU/AU cards), 4 packs per box and 12 boxes per case.
The base set was partially paralleled by a series of game used and autographed cards. Autograph, Bat, Jersey, Button, Laundry Tag, Name Plate Patch, Number Patch, Sleeve Patch and Team Patch were all released as serial numbered inserts.
All the insert sets in 2005 were game used or autographed and were included 2 per pack.

Autograph, Jersey, Jumbo Jersey, Bat, Button, Double Swatch, Double Patch Prime, Double Materials Prime, Laundry Tag, MLB Logo, Name Plate Patch, Number Patch, Team Logo Patch, Triple Patch, Triple Swatch, and Triple Swatch Prime variations were all inserted into packs.
