2004 Flair box

Description

2004 Flair is an 82-card set released in April, 2004. The first 60 cards in this set feature veterans while the final 22 cards make of the "Class of '04" subset, featuring the leading rookies and prospects entering the 2004 season. Each Class of '04 card is serial-numbered to 799 copies.

In a radical departure, Fleer issued the Hobby version in 12-card boxes with an suggested retail price of $120. Each Hobby pack contained seven base cards, one "Class of '04" prospects, three game used cards and an autograph.

A stripped-down version was issued to retail outlets, but the odds of finding anything but base cards were extremely remote.

The new format of Flair was not accepted by collectors. A weak rookie card class and substandard hits (especially among the autographs) led many to take a pass on this product.

Distribution

Hobby: 12 cards per box (MSRP: $120). 12 boxes per case.

Retail: 24 packs per box, 4 cards per pack (MSRP: $3). 20 boxes per case.
