Post Checklist: History of the United States - Upper Deck 2004

History of the United States
Upper Deck 2004

Notes: The 300-card base set includes twelve individually-numbered subsets. Note
that it is impossible to complete a base set from a single box, and you have to be lucky
to do so from two boxes. There are a few mis-markings of the subsets on the cards,
but the card numbers accurately place the cards in sequence. The box-topper coin
cards are packaged in their own wrapper. hoffmaster007 reports (thanks!) that the
original plan only went up to SQ22, but when the series was delayed, very limited
numbers of quarters numbered 23-27 were inserted, and these cards are quite
scarce. The Upper Deck website shows images of all 50 quarter-cards (up to SQ50),
and thus I wonder if we'll see another "wave" of these cards. Thanks to Mike Kloc
for the update!

Box: 18 packs of 10 cards.
Common sets (300): approx. 0.54 per box if collation were perfect.

I did not buy the boxes of this product, just the factory set (which is what you have an image of). Cannot remember what came included in it. Will have to dig it out and check.

Wolfie, were you able to acquire the State Quarters too? Or any of the Etched in History or Presidential Cuts cards?

We have one of the factory boxes, but I don't think it is a complete set. It's not been sorted as of yet. I really like this set a lot, as with most historical sets of this sort. I'm going to have to take a short break at some point soon and re-familiarize myself with the overall contents of what we have.

Happy Collecting! ~ ~ Where Every Card is a New Adventure

Hi, i did not go for the state quarters. I think if i remember right there was some sort of mess up on these and only half of them were ever released, collectors of these ended up paying out a lot of money and got left with a set they could not complete.

The factory set had 300 cards in it which is the base set from the hobby boxes. The hobby boxes then had a further 4 sets of chase cards in them for an extra 65 cards.
