Description

1995 Pinnacle is a 450-card set released in two series of 225 cards. By 1995, Pinnacle Brands, Inc. and its flagship product were established in the Hobby and known for its Dufex technology used on inserts and parallels. Following the "Insert-Mania" trend of the time, this year’s set featured 9 different insert offerings in addition to two parallels, which was the highest number of "chase" cards the product had produced up to that point. For the second consecutive year, each base card featured a borderless color photo with a gold-foil section at the bottom of the card front that housed the player nameplate and resembled the seams and surface of a baseball. Additionally, the unique anti-counterfeit bar codes were again featured on the back.

There were 3 subsets and Checklists at the end of each series:

  • Rookies
  • Draft Picks
  • Swing Men

There are no notable Rookie Cards in the set.

Distribution

Hobby/Retail: 36 packs per box, 12 cards per pack.

Jumbo: 36 packs per box, 15 cards per pack.

This 9-card set was issued in sealed packs to promote the release of 1995 Pinnacle Baseball Series One. The pack contained seven base set reprints, a card from the Upstarts insert set, and an unnumbered title card explaining the set. These promo cards are easily distinguished from their regular issue counterparts as "SAMPLE" is diagonally printed across the front and the back and "0"'s are used in the stat lines on the back.

As with Series One, Series Two Checklists were arranged by League. Card #450 is a checklist for all the inserts.

  • 449 Jeff Bagwell

Parallels

All 450 base cards were available in the following parallels:

  • Museum Collection
  • Artist's Proof

Museum Collection

Ken-Griffey-Jr.jpg?id=ab0f57a1-24c4-40a7-8a87-e552e3841fa9&size=original&side=front&.jpg Ken-Griffey-Jr.jpg?id=ab0f57a1-24c4-40a7-8a87-e552e3841fa9&size=original&side=back&.jpg

Each Museum Collection card utilized the same photo and design as the base set but featured a Dufex finish that emanated from the team logo.

Museum Collection Redemption

Just like last year's set, seven Series Two Museum Collection cards packed out as redemption cards which expired December 31st, 1995. Due to a low response of mailing, these seven cards are considered to be difficult to locate.

  • 410 Shane Andrews
  • 413 James Baldwin
  • 416 Ray Durham
  • 420 Todd Hollandsworth
  • 423 Troy Percival
  • 426 Michael Tucker
  • 444 Rich Aude

Artist's Proof

Chris-Bosio.jpg?id=fe0fc55d-305a-414c-b8f6-85fe6cab67a4&size=original&side=front&.jpg Chris-Bosio.jpg?id=fe0fc55d-305a-414c-b8f6-85fe6cab67a4&size=original&side=back&.jpg

Each Artist's Proof card featured the same photo and design as the base set but had grey-silver foil finish over the baseball seam and surface design at the bottom of each card (compared to a gold foil stamp used for base cards) and an "Artist's Proof" logo stamp. The usage of different foils seemingly helped with distinction between the base card and this parallel. Unlike the previous year's set, Pinnacle Brands, Inc. did not announce the production figures for the Artist's Proof parallels.

Holographic Foil Artist's Proof

Pictures: [1]

In February 2016, a seller on eBay listed a plethora of Artist's Proof parallels featuring a holographic gold foil finish over the baseball seam and surface design and Artist's Proof logo on the card fronts. The players listed included stars and commons from the base and subsets and while provenance cannot be officially confirmed, the seller claimed these were, "pulled in [his] store 20 years ago" and that he, "had many come from one case". Unfortunately, no information was given from the seller or Pinnacle Brands, Inc. about the print run of these holographic versions.

Collectors speculate that these were test issue, alternative versions of the Artist's Proof parallels that were scrapped but erroneously made their way out of the factory and/or were mistakenly distributed into packs.

This nine-card set, exclusive to Series One packs, utilized a reddish-orange and brown background and showcased Pinnacle's picks for the top players at each position with an American League player on the front and a National League player on the back. All cards were intentionally issued with two variations where one side of the card or the other had the Dufex finish; thus each card in the set had a version with the American League player side having the Dufex finish and a version with the National League player side having the Dufex finish. There is no version featuring a Dufex finish on both sides of the card, nor is there a "plain vanilla" version without Dufex.

Team Pinnacle Pin Cards

Pin Card & Pin Package Picture: [3]

This 18-card set was separate but related to the Team Pinnacle Pin Redemption cards. Information about this set is limited because Pinnacle Brands, Inc. never released official information about these Pin Cards. However, the late Bob Lemke - the former editor of Sports Collector Digest (SCD) - was the most knowledgeable person in the Hobby about this set and theorized that these Pin Cards were produced with the intention of being mailed back along with the pin to the person that sent in the Team Pinnacle Redemption card that was inserted in all Series Two packs. Lemke acknowledged this theory as speculation as there was no mention of these Pin Cards on the back of the Redemption cards and because no Pin Cards were ever mailed back to people. This led him to believe that it was originally part of the redemption program but that the idea was ultimately scrapped.

The first card Lemke confirmed the existence of was David Justice. Then, in late-January 2013, Lemke was contacted by a card dealer in Florida that had multiple copies of the Ozzie Smith Pin Card, suggesting that Pin Cards were produced for all 18 players that were in the Team Pinnacle Pin Redemption set.

Then, in September/October 2013, an Ozzie Smith Pin Card and pin (the same pin one would receive after redeeming the Team Pinnacle Pin Redemption card) "package" surfaced for sale on eBay. This package contained a Pin Card, pin, and the full checklist of players (the same 18 players from the Redemption set) and was encased in a hard plastic covering similar to hangar packs, suggesting that these could have been intended to be sold at retail outlets and stores.

Lemke last theorized that Pin Cards of other players that have emerged over the years may have surfaced due to the liquidation of product after Donruss/Leaf/Pinnacle's (DLP) bankruptcy in 1998.

Players with Pin Cards confirmed to exist:

  • David Justice
  • Ozzie Smith
  • Ken Griffey, Jr.
  • Cal Ripken, Jr.
  • Frank Thomas
