2002 Upper Deck Rookie Debut

2002 Upper Deck Rookie Debut is not a set as such, more of an update for three previously released Upper Deck sets: Honor Roll, Ovation, and Victory. Rookie Debut was a retail exclusive update set.
Rookie Debut features a number of autographs game used cards that are not part of any of the three previously released sets plus a number of inserts :Climbing the ladder, Elite Company, Solid Contact and Making their Mark. Added to each of these are Honor Roll UD Prospects, Ovation World Premieres and Victory Rookies.

The Red Sox available are:
#103 Cliff Floyd Honor Roll
#104 Derek Lowe Honor Roll
#136 Josh Hancock Honor Roll UD Prospects
#137 Freddy Sanchez Honor Roll UD Prospects
#122 Cliff Floyd Ovation
#123 Derek Lowe Ovation
#156 Jorge De La Rosa Ovation World Premieres
#157 Freddy Sanchez Ovation World Premieres
#553 Cliff Floyd Victory
#554 Derek Lowe Victory
#612 Freddy Sanchez Victory Rookies
#613 Josh Hancock Victory Rookies
#614 Jorge De La Rosa Victory Rookies

The Rookie Debut pack contains 5 cards.
The Pack:
#105 Hee Seop Choi Cubs Honor Roll
#140 Brian Tallet Indians Honor Roll UD Prospects
#131 Andy Van Hekken Tigers Ovation
#603 Jayson Werth Blue Jays Victory
#629 Aaron Guiel Royals Victory Rookies
In the absence of Red Sox, here is the Ovation embossed with the Detroit logo.
An interesting idea to update three separate sets. Now it would be like Topps Update including Topps Update, Heritage, Chrome, Archives, Opening Day, Attax, Finest, Allen+Ginter, stickers, Gypsy Queen, Museum Collection, Platinum, Tier One, Tribute, Triple Threads...hang on that's just plain stupid.
