Description

Working in conjunction with Upper Deck, The New Era Cap Company issued a 30-card set at the 2004 MLB All-Star Weekend (Houston). One card representing every MLB team. Card backs gave advice to young players on how to improve their baseball skills.

Distribution

Sealed cellophane packs contained 4 cards - three player cards and one UD filler. 288 lucky recipients found their standard filler replaced with an Instant Win card notifying them that they had won a 2003 World Series Champion Florida Marlins AC cap

Reviews

Most card fronts were identical to Upper Deck's 2004 base issue. However, several player cards used different imagery. Notably, any base UD issue which was horizontally formatted is cropped for a vertical display. e.g. Ken Griffey Jr. and Randy Johnson.
