Autographs & Game-Used
The 13-card set feature on-card autographs of some of baseball's great players. The cards were inserted in all packs at a rate of 1:353 packs. More than half the players had not returned their cards in time for packout and thus were inserted as exchange cards. The redemption cards expired on 4/30/03. Eric Munson seems very misplaced to be in this set.
