Description

The 1997 Pinnacle Certified is a 150-card set released exclusively to The Hobby in the summer of 1997. Pinnacle Brands renamed the set from Select Certified, and was designed to compete with Topps' Finest brand -- so much so that, like Finest, each chrome-stock card featured a removable protective "peel." The set includes a 30-card Rookie subset and fifteen Certified Stars. Randomly seeded into packs as a late addition is an exchange card good for a card of Jose Cruz, Jr. Although this card is numbered as part of the base set, it is not considered a "true" rookie card nor is it considered part of a complete set.

Totally Certified

Totally Certified is a 150-card parallel brand version of the 1997 Pinnacle Certified set. The checklist and player content is identical, however the photos are different and the cards are designed with etched-foil. Each three-card pack contains two Platinum Red cards and one Platinum Blue card. Only 999 three-box cases were produced.

Distribution

Hobby: Six cards per pack, 18 packs per box. (MSRP $4.99)

Totally Certified: Three cards per pack, 18 packs per box (MSRP $6.99)

Parallels

Each base card (except the Cruz exchange card) is available in the following parallels.

  • Certified Red (1:5 packs)
  • Artist's Proof
  • Mirror Red (1:99 packs, limited to 90 copies)
  • Mirror Blue (1:199 packs, limited to 45 copies)
  • Mirror Gold (1:299 copies, limited to 30 copies)

Mirror Blacks

This mysterious and very scarce parallel was probably the result of a few test sheets being cut and inserted by mistake into packs. These cards give off a bright green reflection when placed in direct light, but are silver with black print when placed away from light. It is not known for sure if all 150 cards exist; however, it is known that at least two copies of Jay Buhner's Mirror Black exist.

Totally Certified Platinums

Each base card is available in the following parallels and are exclusive to Totally Certified packs.

  • Platinum Red (two-per-pack, serial-numbered to 3999 copies)
  • Platinum Blue (one-per-pack, serial-numbered to 1999 copies)
  • Platinum Gold (1:79, serial-numbered to 30 copies)

NOTE: Platinum Red is considered the Totally Certified base set.

Inserts

Certified Team

Each Certified Team insert is available in the following parallels.

  • Gold (limited to 475 copies)
  • Mirror Gold (limited to 25 copies)
