2004 SP Authentic Football Cards


Product Details

User Rating:

Bolstered by a rookie class that continues to produce, 2004 SP Authentic Football is an appealing product with strong value possibilities. Led by signed rookie cards for a trio of elite quarterbacks with Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers and Eli Manning, collectors can also find rookie cards for receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Wes Welker in the product.

The base set consists of 90 cards and features veterans players. The next 60 cards are part of the Rookie Authentics subset and numbered to 1,199. This subset is the place to find rookie cards for Jared Allen and Wes Welker. Both the base set and base Rookie Authentics subset also have Gold (#50) and Black (#/10) parallels.

While the Rookie Authentics subset continues with another 35 players, an on-card autograph is added along with a print run of 990 copies. There are no huge names to be found, but notable options include Vince Wilfork and Michael Turner. There is also a Gold parallel, numbered to 25.

The Rookie Authentics Autograph Patches contain the biggest names in 2004 SP Authentic Football and receive the most collecting interest. The tiered subset is numbered to 799, 499 or 299 and features an on-card autograph and small jersey swatch. The clear favorites include Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers, Eli Manning and Larry Fitzgerald. Other noteworthy rookie cards include Steven Jackson, Matt Schaub and DeAngelo Hall. Once again, a Gold parallel (#/25) can also be found.

While the rookies are the main focus of the product, there are several signed inserts and one relic set. Given that all the autographs are on-card, they have enjoyed lasting relevance. This is especially true considering the main rookies are included in several versions of the Sign of the Times inserts and a few top veterans and retired greats are also found in the checklist.

Even with the popularity and value for the 2004 NFL rookie class, 2004 SP Authentic Football boxes can be found relatively easy. Boxes average two autographs and although prices can vary, sealed product averages around $125-175 per box.
