Description

The 2004 Topps Cracker Jack set, based on the 1914 Cracker Jack set, consists of 250 total cards; 197 base cards, 3 base variations, 40 short prints and 10 short print variations. The design is the same, however the size of the cards have been resized to today's standard format. Several players from the original set are also reprinted in this set including Nap Lajoie, Bert Shotton, and Branch Rickey. Some of cards backs are upside-down, a tribute of the original 1914 cards as they made to fit inside a special album.

Distribution

Hobby Boxes contained 24 packs of eight cards. Each pack included one mini parallel and a "Secret Suprise" pack. In addition, each sealed Hobby box came with a bag of Cracker Jack.

Variations

These three cards pay tribute to the original 1915 Cracker Jacks, by misspelling the last names of three players. All three are produced in the same quantity as the regular base card, and are considered part of the short-set.

55 Dick Hoblitzell COR

66 Nap Lajoie COR

86 Burt Shotton COR

Short Print Variations

These ten variations are short-printed and are available in the same quantity as the other 40 base-set SPs. Three of the variations show a different pose, four have different card numbers, and the other three show players who had just been traded in the uniforms of their new team.

3 Albert Pujols (swinging pose)

17 Alex Rodriguez (short print has #17 on back, base card in un-numbered)

25 Jim Thome (fielding pose)

80 Felix Pie (short print has #80 on back, same as Sammy Sosa; base card is #181)

95 Gary Sheffield (Yankees)

104 Edwin Jackson (short print has #104 on back, same as Kevin Brown; base card is #178)

140 Curt Schilling (Red Sox)

224 Ivan Rodriguez (Tigers)

229 Jason Giambi (fielding pose)

236 Dioner Navarro (short print has #236 on back, same as Jorge Posada; base card is #201)

Parallels

Minis

Each pack contained a mini-sized card measuring the same size as the original 1915 Cracker Jack cards. Every one of the 197 base cards, 40 SPs, three variations and 10 SP variations, is available in the following parallels:

Red (Base: one-per-pack; SPs: 1:20)

Blue (Base: 1:10; SPs: 1:40)

Stickers

Each wax pack came with a "Secret Suprise," which would yield either an autograph, relic, or a sticker parallel. The stickers are virtually identical to the one-per-pack minis in both size and appearance.

Red (Base: one-per-pack; SPs 1:20)

White (one-of-one)
