Description

2004 Finest is a 121-card set released by Topps exclusively to Hobby outlets in May, 2004. For the first and only time, the 2004 Finest base set included Relic cards -- ten in all. The last 11 cards (#111-#122) are Autographed First Year Players. Each six-pack mini box will yield one Refractor parallel and one Relic card. Hobby boxes will have three mini boxes, and promise at least two autographs and one Uncirculated Gold Refractor.

Distribution

Each Hobby Exclusive box is comprised of 3 mini boxes (MSRP: $40/mini box). Each mini box contains 6 packs of 5 cards each.

Each card features an on-card autograph of a up-and-coming rookie. All cards are true rookies and are seeded into packs at the rate of 1:3 mini boxes.

NOTE: Cards #112, #113, and #118 (base, Refractor, Gold Refractor, and Uncirculated Gold Refractor) were available via redemption. Unfortunately, due to Jeff Allison's substance abuse problems, redemptions for card #112 were unable to be fulfilled. Those that sent in for any variation of that particular card received a 2004 Topps World Series Highlights Bobby Thomson autograph in its place. All redemption cards expired April 30th, 2006.
