Parallels

Artist's Proof

Artist's Proof is a 250-card parallel set, seeded into 1995 Select packs at the rate of 1:24, or one-per-box. Based upon the announced print run of 4950, 24-box cases, collectors were quickly able to calculate that, although each card was not serial-numbered, only 475 copies of each Artist's Proof were produced.

A Hideo Nomo Artist's Proof was randomly distributed directly to Hobby dealers and never inserted in packs.
