For its finale the 2008 M&M included base cards for all of Albert's 97 Walks, 129 Runs Scored, 195 hits, and 41 Home Runs of his 2005 NL MVP season. I have included a parallel of his Home Run card.

When the numbers become too overwhelming, or how to milk more money out of us.
As we sit here waiting to see if the Birds can even up the NLCS series I have been researching the Topps' Moments and Milestones sets which were hobby only releases in 2006, 2007, and 2008. I haven't been able to locate a checklist for 2006 but if it is anything like the subsequent year's issues it must be about 190 base cards with each numbered to #150 and each with 2-4 parallels numbered to 29, 25, 10, and/or 1of 1. According to BaseballCardPedia.com if one were to attempt to complete the base card sets, which means no parallels, your complete base set for 2007 would be a staggering 12,475 unique cards! 2008 was even bigger at 12,579! The concept of the issue was to have a card for each of a player's M&M.
