2002 Upper Deck is a 745-card set released in two series. The 500-card first set was issued in November 2001, with the 245-card Series Two released was in May 2002. Subsets include Star Rookies cards numbered 1-50, 501-545), World Series (cards numbered 467-480), Griffey Gallery (cards numbered 481-490), Checklists (cards numbered 491-500, 736-745), and Year of the Record (cards numbered 726-735).
Star Rookies were inserted at a rate of one per pack into the Second Series pack, making them 1.75 times tougher to pull than veteran second series cards.
A Hobby box of either series should yield one game-used memorabilia card.
