Why would you use
-regexptype egrep -regex '.*[0-9]$'

when you could simply (and portably!) use
-name '*[0-9]'

That said, with -mindepth 1 and -maxdepth 1, it looks like you are not
recursing at all.  So you could just use a glob.

cd "$someplace" || exit
for file in *[0-9]; do
  whatever "$file" "$base"
