Parallels

Precious Metal Gems

Exclusive to Hobby packs, this parallel is serial-numbered to 50 copies each. The three checklists (#218-#220) were NOT produced, making the Precious Metal Gems set complete at 217 cards.

45 copies of each Precious Metal Gem (cards serial-numbered 1-45) were seeded into Hobby packs; while five "Ultimate Gems" redemption cards were randomly seeded into packs. Each Ultimate Gems card could be redeemed for the entire 217-card Precious Metal Gems set with matching serial numbers.
