Description

E-X2000 was produced by Fleer/Skybox and was a 102-card set released in the summer of 1997. Continuing with the previous year's theme of depth, each base card was multi-layered: The card fronts (top layer) featured a colored holographic foil (blue, purple, red, or orange) that accented the player's team with a translucent acetate shadowbox (middle layer) in the center of the card that depicted the sky. The player action photo was layered on top of the acetate. The card backs (bottom layer) were a non-holographic mirror image of the card fronts.

There are no notable rookies in this set.

Distribution

A hobby exclusive, each box of 1997 E-X2000 contained 24 packs of 2 "super premium" cards each. This set marked the first instance that a major licensed card company featured only two cards per pack and was an effort to further establish the set as high-end and exclusive.

Dealers who ordered E-X2000 cases were given an Alex Rodriguez promo card. The card paralleled his base card but is marked "SAMPLE" on the back.

Additionally, an over-sized promotional "strip" featuring A-Rod also exists and is considered to be very rare.

Parallels

Credentials

The Credentials set fully paralleled the base set and each card was serial-numbered to 299. Each Credentials card featured the same multi-layering as a base card but had a silver holographic finish on the card front and was marked "Credentials" horizontally along the upper-left portion of the card front.

Essential Credentials

The Essential Credentials set also fully paralleled the base set but each of these were serial-numbered to 99. Each Essential Credentials card featured the same multi-layering as a base card but had a star-foiled finish and was marked "Essential Credentials" horizontally and vertically along the upper-right portion of the card front. 1997 marked the inaugural release of this parallel set which became very popular with collectors and was featured in every E-X brand release until its end in 2004.

Inserts

Hall or Nothing

This 20-card set highlighted players that were on a projected path to the Hall of Fame. Each card was die-cut, translucent, and had depth created through foil and design. Cards were die-cut to resemble an elaborate gate/archway into the Hall of Fame and player photos were layered on top of the acetate gate/archway entrance.

The foil was etched for detail; however, two colored foil versions exist: Copper and Gold. Fleer/Skybox provided no information about these two versions and two theories have emerged for explanation: that the Copper and Gold foiled cards were a result of a printing error or that one color was a stealth parallel variation that was never officially announced. Regardless of the theories, the Copper foil versions are more plentiful than the Gold and the common conclusion is that the Copper foil was the intended finish and the Gold foil was the variant (intentional or unintentional).
