2003 Upper Deck MVP retail pack

In 2003 MVP was one of a large number of sets produced by Upper Deck. The MVP set consisted of 330 base cards, actually 329 cards as card number 248 didn't exist. The first 220 cards were issued in hobby and retail packs, the next 110 as part of a factory or update set.
There were three parallel versions available; black, gold and silver.
There were three inserts; 90 Sports Nut, 15 Express Delivery and 90 Celebrations, also available in a silver parallel set.
There were also the ridiculous number of relic, auto, game used cards.
The base set Red Sox available were:
#29 Nomar Garciaparra
#30 Pedro Martinez
#31 Manny Ramirez
#32 Shea Hillenbrand
#33 Johnny Damon

Red Sox available in the factory set were;
#236 Byung-Hyun Kim
