2003 Topps Finest Cubs

The 2003 Finest set again had 110 cards and again the final ten were rookies or prospects. And like in 2002, those final ten cards were autographed too. Thankfully for me, none were Cubs.

But that doesn't mean I might get off easy.

Five of the 100 non-rookies were Cubs, and one of the five has the most expensive card in the set.  At least that's the way the 2008 Standard Catalog lists it.  One of the five cards below is listed for $35.00

And who's card is it??



It's not Sammy, who had card #1 in the set.  

Mark wrong too, though in 2003 his cards were going for a pretty penny.

It wasn't Alou or Wood either.

Hee Seop Choi's card is the $35 card.  And I have no idea why.  A typo maybe?  Bonds for $3, Nomar for $1.50, and Choi for $35????

It certainly isn't going for that amount today.  You can get several on Ebay for a buck each.  Sportlots has a bunch for 18¢.

That's what I paid.....18¢

I got off easy.
