"base" is the key word; no sane person expects SSPs, etc. in a base set. Maybe the sports collectors are just more inherently knowledgeable b/c everyone knows with heritage bb, for instance, that a base set would not include the rare stuff. also, heritage bb has been around for many years and you get the same collectors each year.
