Artist's Proofs fully paralleled the base set and featured a holographic finish over the areas of the card fronts with gold foil.  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, which was a very low print run total at the time.  Artist's Proofs were seeded into packs at the rate of 1:24, or one-per-box.

Description

1995 Select was a single-series, 251-card set, released exclusively to Hobby outlets in the Summer of 1995. As with the previous year's Select, only 4950, 24-box cases were produced with each individual box bearing a unique serial-number.

A special card of Hideo Nomo (#251) was issued later in the year to those dealers who ordered a specific number of cases directly from Pinnacle Brands. Despite not being issued in packs, the card is attainable on the secondary market and a set is considered complete with it; however, it is not considered a "true" rookie card.

Distribution

24 packs per box, 12 cards per pack. 24 boxes per case. 4950 cases per series produced. (MSRP: $1.99). Hobby exclusive.

Artist's Proof

Artist's Proofs fully paralleled the base set and featured a holographic finish over the areas of the card fronts with gold foil. 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, which was a very low print run total at the time. Artist's Proofs were seeded into packs at the rate of 1:24, or one-per-box.

Like with the base set, a Hideo Nomo Artist's Proof was randomly distributed directly to Hobby dealers and never inserted in packs.
