2004 Topps Bazooka

One of the card shops in my area has a stack of $10 boxes at the front of the store. Most of them are your typical junk wax, but every now and then they have something that catches my eye.

Three hits in a ten dollar box!

The first box of baseball cards that I've seen with nutrition information!

 The cards themselves are alright. It's a low-end brand, so I really wasn't expecting much.

Only one year of stats and a brief write-up makes for some quick reading.

It is a three hundred and thirty card set and I ended up with about a third of the base cards and only two duplicates.

Of course there wasn't just base cards, there were plenty of inserts/parallels as well.

There were red parallels (one a pack except for when there was a relic card).

There was also one mini per pack as well.

Also included in the pack was either...

...a comic,

a tattoo,

a sticker,

or a pop-up.

As promised, the box also included three relic cards. The first two were okay, but nothing to write home about.

Carl Everett...

...and Pat Burrell.

But the last one was worth the price of the box alone.

A very sweet Yaz relic!

Definitely worth the ten bucks.


  1. Nice Yaz relic. That would be worth the $10.00.

  2. That was a fun break. Can't go wrong with Yaz!

  3. Bazooka was fun - if I could get Topps to bring back one set, this would be it. (I miss Topps Total more, but I know a 900+ card, one series set with bench players and middle relievers in every pack is going to crash and burn in 2015.)

  4. Mad fun!I bought a box of '05 Bazooka a while back and had a blast busting it.Fun stuff!

  5. That's sweet. Nice pull with the Yaz!

  6. Score! I would have been all over that for a 10 spot. Looks like it was the perfect blaster for a Red Sox fan too, congrats!

  7. Wow, great value for a 10-spot! Looks like fun. Yaz...what else can you say?? And I dig the Carl Everett card; Lemme know if you're ever interested in swapping it!

  8. I have to agree a great pick up for $10. I remember opening a lot of this back in 2004 and the 2006 set. Plus while the set doesn't have any autos in it, it does have low numbered relic parallels on shiny foil board and some really nice names in the sets.

  9. I agree with everyone else. Solid pickup for $10!

  10. If your looking to complete the set, I have some extras and need a few as well. $10, take me home.
