2003 Topps Series 1

Here is the Series 1 version of essentially what I posted last week. I have yet to track down anything from the Traded set. I need to look into getting a hold of some more packs/boxes/whatever from all three series.

4 - Jermaine Dye (Dye was essentially dead to me when he became a member of the 1996 Braves.)

221 - Bobby Jones (Jones managed to lose almost 20 games in 2001 while still having a generic enough name that I can't say I have ever heard of him.)

96 - Alex Gonzalez (Gonzalez was a career .240 hitter at this point. He's managed to raise his average just 8 points, yet still gets a significant chunk of playing time each season to this day.)

63 - Andy Ashby

OG29 - Derek Lowe (Get Lowe!)

360 - Torii Hunter All-Stars (Further proof that Hunter is one of the all-around good guys of baseball: he's taking his move to right field in stride.)

123 - Andy Benes

49 - Jason Simontacchi (I always credit Simontacchi with the Cardinals striped socks revival, although So Taguchi was doing it too and he came along in the same season.)

101 - Steve Cox

77 - Miguel Tejada (Say what you will about Tejada, but he did not age well when you look at his stats.)

This Topps set was its best set design wise since 1991. The blue borders just work
