Apparently football, hockey, and basketball are not part of our country's heritage as the only sport included in the product from the Big 4 is baseball. Seeing as it is our country's National Pastime, that's probably appropriate. However that does little to explain the inclusion of Michael Phelps, Jesse Ventura, Keith Olberman, and Misty May-Traynor and Kerri Walsh.
There are no athletes in the base set but there are 20 non-relic , non-autographed insert cards. Which were listed last. The rest are comprised of relic, autograph, and combinations thereof.

Actually, Joe Namath is in the base set. Buster Keaton and Harold Houdini were much better athletes that he was though.
