Description

2003 Bowman's Best is a 132-card set released in September, 2003. As with the previous year's set, the bulk of the set is of autographed and game-used rookie cards.

Each five-card pack will yield one of 71 First Year Autographs. The ten First Year Relics were NOT inserted into packs; rather, one Relic was packed into each Hobby box as a box topper.

In addition, Bryan Bullington (the #1 overall pick in that year's MLB Draft) autographed the outside of some Hobby boxes.

Distribution

Ten packs plus one First Year Relic card per box, five cards per pack (MSRP: $15). Ten boxes per case. Hobby only.
