Description

2004 Hot Prospects Draft is a 120-card set released by Fleer in November, 2004.

In late 2004, the MLBPA, granted Donruss-Playoff, Fleer, and Upper Deck a one-time exemption to their licensing agreement that allowing each to produce a set featuring prospects, draft picks, and other non-union players. These exempt products were designed to compete with Topps' long-established Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects brand. Hot Prospect Draft was Fleer's exempted product, while Elite Extra Edition and SP Prospects were Donruss-Playoff and Upper Deck's.

The last 60 cards in the base set are short-printed and serial-numbered. Cards 61-70 and 112 and 113 make up the "Hot Prospects" subset and are serial-numbered to 1000 copies. Cards 71-111 and 114-120 are the "Signature Selections" and are all serial-numbered to 299 copies.

Collectors should be advised that a number of cards including Yadier Molina's RC (#112) packed out as redemptions, which, for all intents and purposes, expired during Fleer's 2005 bankruptcy.

Distribution

Hobby: 15 packs per box, five cards per pack (MSRP: $8.50). 12 boxes per case.

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