Description

2003 Bowman Chrome is a 352-card set released by Topps in July, 2003. The first 330 cards parallel the 2003 Bowman base set. The next 21 cards (#331-#350) make up a Chrome-exclusive Autographed First Year Player subset. The final card in the set (#351) is a card of Willie Mays -- whom Topps signed to exclusive autograph contract earlier in the year -- that was distributed in a Hobby-exclusive box-topper pack.

Also included in each Hobby only box topper pack was one Gold Refractor serial-numbered to 170 copies, and a redemption card good for an Uncirculated Blue Refractor. The Blue Refractors were part of a tie-in with thepit.com, which was owned by Topps at the time. The Blue Refractor card expired on November 30, 2005.

Distribution

Hobby: 18 packs plus one box topper featuring 1) a Gold Refractor, 2) a Willie Mays card, and 3) an Uncirculated Blue Refractor redemption card per box, 4 cards per pack (MSRP: $4). 12 boxes per case.

Retail: 24 packs per box, 3 cards per pack

Willie Mays

Topps had signed Willie Mays to an exclusive autograph and marketing contract in 2003, and decided to include him in the 2003 Bowman Chrome base set. Each sealed Hobby box contained one Willie Mays card, either a base card, Refractor parallel, or autograph (see below).

All 330 base cards are available in the following Refractor parallels.

  • Refractor
  • X-Fractor
  • Gold Refractor (serial-numbered to 170 copies; one per Hobby box as a box topper)

In addition, ten redemption cards good for the entire set of Gold Refractors were randomly seeded into Hobby packs.

  • X-Fractor (limited, but not serial-numbered, to 250 copies; Contreras limited to 50)
  • Gold Refractor (limited, but not serial-numbered, to 50 copies; Contreras limited to ten)

Willie Mays Refractor

Randomly inserted into each Hobby only box topper pack are the following Refractor parallels of the Willie Mays base card.

  • Refractor (limited, but not serial-numbered, to 500 copies)
  • X-Fractor (limited, but not serial-numbered, to 250 copies)
  • Gold Refractor (limited, but not serial-numbered, to 50 copies)

Uncirculated Blue Refractors

Inserted into each Hobby only box topper pack was one redemption card good for an Uncirculated Blue Refractor. Each redemption card had a code that, when entered on thepit.com, would add a randomly selected Blue Refractor to the collector's account (At the time, Topps owned thepit.com). Only the 165 unautographed First Year Players (cards #166-#330) had a Blue Refractor. Collectors had until July 31st, 2005 to claim their Blue Refractor.

The claimed Blue Refractors would remain in the collector's thepit.com account until he/she requested delivery "in-hand." When the collector requested delivery (for a nominal shipping & handling fee), the card they received would be encased in a plastic "slab" similar to an eTopps card -- hence the "Uncirculated" part.

Since so few Blue Refractors were claimed, and what few claimed were never delivered, in-hand Blue Refractors are not frequently seen.

Autographs

Willie Mays Autograph
