Boston returned to the postseason in 2003 for the first time since 1999 and took the Yankees to extra innings of Game 7 of the ALCS before Aaron Boone ended their season. There were not too many Red Sox who did not appear in cards thanks to Topps Total and Upper Deck 40 Man. Dave McCarty, Andy Abad, Bill Haselman, Damian Jackson, Steve Woodard, Ryan Rupe, Rudy Seanez, and Bob Howry all had very few cards, but still had some, unlike these next few guys.
There were some interesting names appearing on this list. Several players had long careers in the Majors. Several players had some success in the Majors. Yet none of these players appeared on a card with the Red Sox. Scott Sauerbeck and Todd Jones each played in 26 games with the Red Sox, though Sauerbeck pitched fewer innings on account of being a lefty specialist. Todd Jones is likely my favorite player without a card in 2003, and he probably deserved one.
