2003 Donruss MasterpieceSet ?

It's always fun to add a 1/1 to one of one's player collections. These situations don't happen that often but recently I was able to pick up a cool Glavine 1/1 !! However, browsing the internet a bit I am still not sure if this is a "real" 1/1 or that someone put on a nice 1/1 stamp to sell it for some nice money. Here's the Glavine I came across:

It's a 2003 Donruss Champions card. One the left side there is a clear "stamp" saying "MasterpieceSet 01/01". However, I have been trying to find some detail on this "MasterpiecesSet" but for now have been unsuccessful.

Anyone of you ever came across this set ?

Thanks !

  2. The "MasterpieceSet" is just another one of those homemade "after-market" 1/1s. I know Donruss had issued some foil-stamped low-numbered (sometimes 1/1) cards at shows like the National, but I believe all of those are stamped with the event.

    BBM, the Japanese card manufacturer, has events frequently and they will emboss their cards with an event embossing.
