Description

2003 Flair Greats is a 133-card set released exclusively to Hobby outlets in December, 2002. The product is an extension of Fleer's popular "Greats of the Game" line and, as the name suggests, the design is identical to that of the 2002 Flair base set. Each 20-pack Hobby box will yield two game-used memorabilia cards and one oversized Sweet Swatch Classic box topper.

The final 38 cards in the base set are exclusive to specially-marked, regionally distributed, "Home Team" boxes. Each four-box Home Team case came with three regular Hobby boxes and one "Home Team" box. Each Home Team box contains one randomly inserted pack that has four short-printed Home Team base cards plus one Home Team pack-exclusive game-used memorabilia card. There are five Home Team subsets: Red Sox (cards #96-102), Dodgers (cards #103-110), Giants (cards #111-117), Yankees (cards #118-125), and Cardinals (cards #126-133).

Distribution

Hobby: 20 packs plus one Sweet Swatch card per box, five cards per pack (MSRP: $4.99). 12 boxes per case.

Home Team: 20 packs plus one Sweet Swatch card per box, five cards per pack (MSRP: $4.99). 3 boxes plus one Home Team box per case. Hobby only.
