1996 Pinnacle

Description

1996 Pinnacle is a 400-card set released in two series of 200 cards. In an effort to improve the brand's cache with collectors, 1996 Pinnacle was printed on a slighty thicker 20-point cardstock.

NOTE: The second series has a subset called "The .300 Series" in which the player's card number matches his career batting average. Since Paul Molitor and Jeff Bagwell both had batting averages of .305, Pinnacle sequentially-numbered their cards out to four decimal places: 305.3 for Molitor and 305.6 for Bagwell. Because there are two different versions of card #305, the set ends with card #399 and there is no card #400.

Parallels

Starburst

Starburst is a 200-card all-Dufex partial-parallel, which for all intents and purposes, replaces the Museum Collection parallel. 100 cards from each series (half the base set) were made into Starburst's, however the set is sequentially-numbered differently.

In addition to the "base" Starburst, a scarcer Starburst Artist's Proof parallel is also available.
