Description

1997 Pinnacle Mint is a 30 card and 30 coin set that was Pinnacle Brands' attempt to combine card collecting with numismatics -- but failing to appeal to either. Each base card has a die-cut hole where the player's corresponding coin was meant to fit.

Distribution

Three cards plus two coins per pack (MSRP: $3.99).

Promos

Ryan Klesko's base card, Bronze parallel, and Brass Coin were issued by Pinnacle as promos. Both cards have the word "SAMPLE" printed diagonally on each side, however there is no special marking on the promo coin.

Parallels

All 30 base cards are available in the following parallels.

  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold

On each parallel, the die-cut hole is replaced with a foil-stamped team logo.

Coins

Each pack came with two coins and the checklist is identical to that of the cards. Each coin is available in the following metals.

  • Brass
  • Nickel-Silver
  • 24K Gold Plated Brass
  • Solid Silver (limited to 20 coins)
  • Solid Gold (one-of-one)

The Solid Gold coins packed out as exchange cards.

Two versions of the Manny Ramirez Brass coin were distributed - an erroneous version with the words "FINE SILVER" on the back, and a corrected version. The "fine silver" version appears to be about four times tougher to find than the corrected.
