Description

2003 Flair is a 135 card set, released in two separate series. The first series was released in June 2003, consists of the first 125 cards. The first 90 cards feature veterans, while the next 35 cards make up the "Future Fame" subset, which are all short-printed and serial-numbered to 500 copies each. The final ten cards (numbered 126-135) were randomly seeded into packs of Fleer Rookies & Greats which was distributed in December 2003. Each of these update cards featured a top prospect and were also serial numbered to 500 copies.

Each Flair 20-pack Flair Hobby box yielded four game-used cards, one Future Fame card, a Flair Collection parallel, and an over-sized Sweet Swatch box-topper.

Notable rookies (all included in the short-printed Future Fame subset) include Hideki Matsui, Chien-Ming Wang, Shane Victorino, and Jeremy Bonderman. Rookie cards of Brandon Webb, Rickie Weeks and Delmon Young were included in Rookies & Greats packs.

Distribution

Hobby: 20 packs and one Sweet Swatch box-topper per box; five cards per pack (MSRP $6)
