Description

1997 Pinnacle was a 200-card, single-series set released in February, 1997. There were plans for a second 200-card series, but a Series 2 was replaced with an entire new product offering, 1997 New Pinnacle. Many star players were originally planned to feature in Series 2 and because of this, these players did not have a base card but instead appeared in the "Clout" subset only. Similar to previous years, each base card featured a borderless color photo with a gold foil design at the bottom or side (for landscape-oriented cards) portion of the card front - this year, the design housed the player name plate and depicted a baseball diamond with the foul territory portion covered with famous last names from that franchise's history.

There were 2 subsets and Checklists at the end of the set:

  • Rookies
  • Clout

There were no notable Rookie Cards in the set.

Parallels

All 200 base cards were available in the following parallels:

  • Museum Collection
  • Artist's Proof

Museum Collection

Eddie-Murray.jpg?id=1e9a926b-9963-4937-943c-4ba38ecddfc6&size=original&side=front&.jpg Eddie-Murray.jpg?id=1e9a926b-9963-4937-943c-4ba38ecddfc6&size=original&side=back&.jpg

After a one-year hiatus in name, the "Museum Collection" moniker returned. All 200 base cards were available in a Museum Collection parallel and utilized the same photo and design as the base set but featured a Dufex finish that emanated from the gold foil baseball diamond design.

Artist's Proof

Trevor-Hoffman.jpg?id=165fb2c6-3966-4181-ab61-297ea8e476b7&size=original&side=front&.jpg Mike-Mussina.jpg?id=12cd4cc3-67a7-45a7-82dd-31d4a1dd20d3&size=original&side=front&.jpg Jim-Thome.jpg?id=fa403e58-1de6-42de-9017-5cfe2a4da0af&size=original&side=front&.jpg

All 200 cards were available in an Artist's Proof parallel. Following a similar structure to the 1997 Finest brand, the Artist's Proof parallel set was "fractured" into three different groups, represented by the color of Dufex finish:

  • 125 Bronze Artist's Proofs
  • 50 Silver Artist's Proofs
  • 25 Gold Artist's Proofs (print run of 300 copies)

Gold Artist's Proofs are scarcest and had an announced print run of only 300 non serial-numbered copies; the Silver Artist's Proofs were the second hardest to pull and the Bronze Artist's Proofs were the least scarce of the three. All three shared the same Artist's Proof logo on front.

Press Plate Previews

To promote the new press plate concept that was eventually introduced in the 1997 New Pinnacle release, press plates that were used to print cards from the 1997 Pinnacle set were distributed within sealed cases of 1997 New Pinnacle. Each press plate was hand serial numbered and spelled out (e.g., "Forty Six", rather than "46") and the cases were serial-numbered as well. Dealers lucky enough to have been sent a case where the serial number on the case matched the serial number on the press plate would win a prize for their store.

There were Press Plate Preview "parallels" of all 200 base cards and all 10 Shades inserts; thus, a total of 1680 Press Plate Preview cards were distributed. Each card has 8 press plates - four "front" plates of different colors and four "back" plates of different colors:

  • Front Cyan
  • Front Magenta
  • Front Yellow
  • Front Black
  • Back Cyan
  • Back Magenta
  • Back Yellow
  • Back Black

For the sixth consecutive year, Pinnacle featured their flagship insert, this time on a landscape-oriented, silver, yellow, and orange-colored baseball background design that had a Dufex finish. This 10-card set included Pinnacle's picks for the top players at each position with an American League player on one side and a National League player on the the other. Similar to the previous year's iteration of this set, there is only one version of each card: the front of each card featured the Dufex finish but the back of the card did not feature any Dufex foil; thus, there is no version featuring a Dufex finish on both sides of the card.

The tenth card in the set featured all 18 players featured in the insert with a similar design structure: half of the players were on the front, half were on the back, and the front of the card featured a Dufex finish.

  • 1 Frank Thomas / Jeff Bagwell
  • 2 Chuck Knoblauch / Eric Young
  • 3 Ken Caminiti / Jim Thome
  • 4 Alex Rodriguez / Chipper Jones

This 25-card set honored the rise to fame of some of baseball's most high profile superstars on a black die-cut, bi-fold card design that resembled a Passport and folded outwards.

This 20-card set highlighted theoretical batter/pitcher matchups in the game on a "dual-front" card that featured a top hitter one side and his opponent pitcher on the other. The front/hitter side of the card featured a holographic orange and black finish while the back of the card had a regular glossy finish. Out of the pack, both sides were covered with an opaque "peel and reveal" protective cover that had to be removed, similar to the Mystery Finest inserts from the Topps Finest brand. This set was exclusive to Hobby packs only.

This 24-card set featured 12 of the top players in the game on a card that was die-cut into the shape of the player's home or away jersey. "Home" jersey cards had even-number sequential ordering and "Away" jersey cards had odd-number sequential ordering. This set was exclusive to Magazine packs. While never confirmed by Pinnacle Brands, Inc., some collectors speculate that the Home cards were short-printed.
