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.
