Description

2002 SPx is a 250-card set issued in two separate series. The SPx product itself was released in late April, 2002 and contained the first 190 cards.

Cards 91-120 make up the "Rookie/Young Star" subset. There are two different versions of each Rookie/Young Star (portrait or action shot), and each card is serial-numbered to 1800 cards (for a total of 3600 of each player). A set is considered complete with only one version.

Cards 121-150 were not serial-numbered but instead feature autographs and were seeded into packs at a rate of 1:18.

Cards numbered 151 through 190 make up the "SuperStars Swatches" subset, and feature jersey swatches of leading major league players. These cards had a stated print run of either 700 or 800 serial-numbered cards.

A typical 18-pack SPx box should yield one Winning Materials game-used card, one autographed prospect card, and a third "hit."

The final 60 cards (191-250) were distributed in mid-December, 2002 within packs of 2002 Upper Deck Rookie Update. Cards 191-220 feature veterans on new teams and were commonly distributed in all packs. Cards 221-250 feature prospects and were all signed by the player. Each autographed card was seeded into Rookie Update packs at the rate of one-per-box and serial-numbered to 825 copies.

Distribution

SPx: 18 packs per box, four cards per pack (MSRP: $5). Hobby exclusive. 14 bpxes per case.

Rookie Update: 15 packs per box, four cards per pack. Hobby exclusive. Includes cards from 2002 SP Authentic and 2002 Upper Deck Diamond Collection.
