Description

2003 SPx is a 199-card set released by Upper Deck in two series. The first 178 cards were issued as part of the regular SPx product, which was released in August, 2003. The first 125 cards make up the short set; however, 25 of those cards were short-printed and inserted at the rate of 1:4/packs. The next 35 cards make up a Rookie subset, with each serial-numbered to 999 copies. The remaining 18 cards (#161-#179) are all autographed rookies featuring a swatch of game-used memorabilia. Card #161 of Hideki Matsui is serial-numbered to 864 copies. Card #162 of Jose Contreras is serial-numbered to 800, but does NOT have a jersey swatch. The other 16 autographed rookies are serial-numbered to 1224.

The final 21 cards were randomly inserted inside Hobby boxes of 2003 Upper Deck Finite, which was issued in December, 2003. 15 additional Rookies and Prospects (cards #179-#193) were serial-numbered to 150 copies while six Autographed Rookies (cards #381-#387) were numbered to 355. It is unclear why the Update Series cards are skip-numbered.

Distribution

18 packs per box, four cards per pack (MSRP: $7). 14 boxes per case. Hobby only.

Autographs & Game-Used

Winning Materials

There are four Winning Materials cards for each player and each "Tier" has two variations: "Logo" and "Number." Each Winning Materials card is serial-numbered to the following.

Tier/Variation Number Logo
Tier 1 40 335
Tier 2 22 228
Tier 3 20 155
Tier 4 10 40

The first few copies of each card are available in the Number variation, with the remainder of the production run in the Logo variation. For example, the first 40 serial-numbered copies of a Tier 1 card have the player's number on the card, while the remaining cards starting with 41 and ending with 375 have a team logo instead.
