2003 Upper Deck Honor Roll

Here is an interesting concept from 2003, a 161 card set from Upper Deck. The first 130 cards in the set are two different cards for 65 players, the even numbered cards #2- #60 are short printed and apparently seeded into packs in a ratio of 1 to 6. Card #131 is a short printed (#to1000) exclusive Hideki Matsui card and the next 30 cards are Freshman Class rookies and prospects (#to2500).
There are two parallel sets called Silver Honors (#to150) and Gold Honors (#to25)
There are three relics inserts available; Dean's List Jersey, Grade A Batting Gloves and Leather of Distinction. An interesting feature of the Dean's List jersey is that each player has two cards, one for each initial in their name. Well maybe not that interesting really.
The Red Sox available are;
#23 Nomar Garciaparra
#24 Nomar Garciaparra SP
#39 Pedro Martinez
#40 Pedro Martinez SP

There are 5 cards per pack. I have two packs.

Pack 1:
#21 Miguel Tejada Athletics
#68 Shawn Green Dodgers
#81 Rafael Palmeiro Rangers
#104 J.D.Drew Cardinals
#108 Brian Giles Pirates
Pack 2:
#7 Mike Piazza Mets
#53 Bernie Williams Yankees
#88 Rafael Furcal Braves
#93 Roy Oswalt Astros
#97 Larry Walker Rockies
In terms of Red Sox, I am seriously opening some crappy packs lately.
