Time to start a new set via a fresh box! Unfortunately, 2003 series 1 boxes still suffer from the curse of sticky cards. It wasn’t as bad as the 2001 cards but it still irked me.
Here’s my first card.
I wasn’t following baseball too closely back when this set came out so this is an unknown to me. Sorry about the glare!
LIFETIME TOPPS PROJECT does a great job of writing up the info for each year’s set. You can find the 2003 one here.
Here are the inserts I pulled.
I love the Record Breakers because they included team records as well as league ones!
Shiny but none of the players interest me. It is funny to see a pre-long-locks Damon!
These are the Blue backs! Pujols is a player I collect but the others could be yours!
Not too many Golds in this box. I pulled two Braves but one of them seems to have put the wrong uniform on.
You can see the bulk of Pudge next to the unjuiced Jeter. I don’t think I’ll be collecting these, either.
Final Tally –
339 of 366 base
There was no “hit” in this box but getting a near complete set and being able to enjoy opening the box for under $30 is well worth it my eyes.
Here’s my wantlist if you can help me complete the set!
Thanks for reading!
