Description

2004 Upper Deck Series One consists of a 270-card base set and was released in November, 2003. It is supplemented by the 270-card Series Two set that was released in May and a 50-card Update set was packaged into 2005 Upper Deck Series One Hobby boxes.

Each 24-pack Hobby yielded two game used cards and a 60-card 2003 Upper Deck Update factory set.

There are no notable rookies in this set.

High Gloss Factory Set

For the first time since 1996, Upper Deck's flagship product was released as a factory set. The set came packaged in a hardwood case (not unlike UD's 2000 Yankees & Dodgers Master Collections) and features all 540 Series One and Series Two cards, plus a redemption card good for the 50-card Update set. Only 9930 "High Gloss Factory Sets" were produced.

Each base card is covered with a special glossy coating which is even shinier than the UV-gloss Upper Deck normally uses. In addition, each factory set came with a special Derek Jeter Bonus Pack. Each Bonus Pack contained three cards from a 25-card Derek Jeter set. In addition, every tenth Jeter Bonus Pack contains either A) A game-used Jeter jersey card serial-numbered to 99 copies; B) A Derek Jeter autographed card serial-numbered to 50; or C) An autographed and game-used Jeter jersey card serial-numbered to ten.

Distribution

Hobby: 24 packs plus one 2003 Upper Deck Update factory set per box, eight cards per pack (MSRP: $3); 12 boxes per case.

Retail: 24 packs per box, nine cards per pack (MSRP: $3); 12 boxes per case.

Blasters: Eight packs per box (MSRP: $19.99), nine cards per pack.

Inserts

First Pitch

This insert set shows various celebrities throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before a game. It is numbered as a continuation of the "SP" insert series from the early-90s.

  • Card #SP9 was not produced. It is believed that #SP9 was to have been of long-time Milwaukee Brewers play-by-play announcer and actor Bob Uecker, but Uecker had signed an exclusive contract with Topps.
