1997 Pinnacle Mint
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.
Three cards plus two coins per pack (MSRP: $3.99).

All 30 base cards are available in the following parallels.
On each parallel, the die-cut hole is replaced with a foil-stamped team logo. Gold cards are printed using Dufex technology.
Each pack came with two coins and the checklist is identical to that of the cards. Each coin is available in the following metals.
- 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.
