Description

1997 Stadium Club is a 390-card set released in two series of 195 cards. The last 15 cards in each series (TSC 2000 cards 181-195 and Stadium Sluggers Cards 376-390) are both short-printed.

Series One was released in February 1997, with Series Two, two months later. Please note that cards 361 and 374 do not exist. Due to an error at the manufacturer both Mike Sweeney and Tom Pagnozzi had their cards numbered as 274. In addition, Jermaine Dye and Brant Brown both had their cards numbered as 351. These numbering errors were never corrected.

Series One Hobby/Retail: 24 packs per box, eight cards per pack (MSRP: $3).

Series Two retail: 24 packs per box, six cards per pack (MSRP: $2).

Checklist

Promos

Each Topps wholesale account received one of these three Pre-Production sample cards along with their order forms for 1997 Stadium Club Series One baseball. The cards were designed to provide wholesale customers with a sneak preview of the upcoming Stadium Club release. The design parallels the regular issue cards except for the PP-prefixed numbering. In addition, the term "Pre-Production Sample" replaces the line of 1996 statistics on back.
