2004 Topps Pristine is a 188-card chromium-stock set released in October, 2004. As with the previous year's Pristine set, the last 90 cards in the base set make up a 30-player First-Year subset. Each of the 30 First-Year Players has three cards: Common, Uncommon (serial-numbered to 999 copies) and Rare (serial-numbered to 499 copies).

Each pack contains three mini packs. One pack will have an Uncirculated card, pack #2 a Relic, and the third pack six base cards -- at least two coming from the First-Year Player subset. Each Hobby box will contain, as box toppers, a "Pack #4" which will yield one "Pristine Mini" card, and a Gold Refractor.


Five packs plus one "Pack #4" and one Gold Refractor per box, eight cards per pack (MSRP: $30). Six boxes per case. Hobby only.
