The next factory set I have obtained and busted open is 2003 Topps. I really like this set, nice design, sooooo much blue, and a great player selection and subsets. Some decent rookies this year including Cole Hamels and Kevin Youkilis. The rookies have a huge '1st Year' foil stamp on the card front. So much blue. Everywhere. They gave Alex Rodriguez card #1 back when he was a Ranger. Before the 33 million a year. Good photography as per usual, Topps really started to notch up the photo quality around 1992-1993. Overall a really nice set, and I'm glad to have added it to my (quickly) growing factory set collection.
