Description

2004 Upper Deck First Pitch is a 300-card set released to retail outlets in February. Similar to Topps's Opening Day brand, First Pitch is a stripped-down rendition of the 2004 Upper Deck flagship brand. The first 270 cards parallel the 270-card 2004 Upper Deck Series One base set -- but with the addition of a "First Pitch" logo on the front.

The final 30 cards (#271-#300) are a selection of cards from the 2004 Upper Deck Series Two Star Rookies subset, and are short-printed.

Distribution

36 packs per box, five cards per pack. 20 boxes per case. Retail only.

Spell & Win Diamond Collection Sweepstakes

Inserted into each 2004 Upper Deck First Pitch pack was a Spell & Win Diamond Collection Sweepstakes card. Each card had a letter, and if collectors were able to spell "DIAMOND COLLECTION," they could redeem their letters for one of 20 Ken Griffey, Jr. autographed baseballs. The promotion ended September 30th, 2004.

It is believed that the "T" was short-printed.
