2004 Upper Deck Play Ball hobby box

Description

2004 Upper Deck Play Ball is a 233-card set. The first 183 cards were issued in the Play Ball product in April, 2004. The set consists of two serial-numbered subsets: Rookie Portfolio (Cards #133-#162) and Classic Combos (#163-#183). Each 24-pack Hobby box will yield four serial-numbered cards, one die-cut card, eight parallels, two game-used memorabilia cards, and one autograph.

The last 50 cards in the set (cards #184-#233) are known as the Update Series and were distributed exclusively as a factory set inside Hobby boxes of 2004 Upper Deck Series Two. Each Series Two Hobby box came with an unmarked and shrink-wrapped Update Set box from one of four possible 2004 Upper Deck early-season products: Vintage, Play Ball, Reflections and SP Game Used Patch. Collectors had to break the shrink wrap to figure out which set they received. The odds of finding the Play Ball Update set were 1:4/sets.

The 1:6 Blue inserts utilize alternate player images than the base cards and numbered parallels. The "Red" die-cut parallel, numbered to /175, actually features Gray/Silver frames.

Distribution

Hobby: 24 packs per box, five cards per pack (MSRP: $4). 14 boxes per case.
