[edit] Description

1998 Select was a proposed a 250-card fractured set, intended for release in September, 1998. The product was never released due to Pinnacle Brands' bankruptcy.

The base set was fractured based on what Pinnacle called the "Quasar System." The first 100 cards were to be known as the "One-Stars," with the next 75 as the "Two-Stars." The next 50 cards were the "Three-Stars," and the final 25 the "Four-Stars." It is assumed that the One-Star cards were to have been the most common and the Four-Stars the most rare. An additional five "Five-Star Bonus" cards were also to have been produced, but although the Five-Star Bonus cards were not to have been sequentially-numbered as part of the base set, they were to have been serial-numbered to only 50 copies. Each base card has to have also been available in a "Jersey" parallel, with each card serial-numbered to the player's respective uniform number.

There were to have been four insert sets: Diamond Dominance, Selected, Rare Form, and Select Numbers.

[edit] Bankruptcy Issues

A bankruptcy judge ordered all unissued trading cards (including cards from this product) to be destroyed; however, a number of 1998 Select cards have made their way into the secondary market. The only authorized cards from the set that were issued before the bankruptcy filing were a 10-card promo set of the Selected insert. All other cards were backdoored.

[edit] Base Set

1998 Select was to be a 250-card base set. However, to this date, only 36 base cards from the set are known to have surfaced on the secondary market. It is unclear, after all these years, what ever happened to the other 214 cards in the set. It has been estimated that less than 20 copies of each card made their way into the open market. The following is the complete checklist as set forth on the product sell sheet, with the cards confirmed to have landed on the secondary market in bold. Each card is has a "Quasar System" level indicated on the back, ranging from level 1 to level 4. Level 1 (1-100) has a rectangular design, Level 2 (101-175) circular, Level 3 (176-225) triangular and Level 4 (226-250) diamond.

[edit] Inserts

[edit] Selected

These 10 cards were the only cards from the 1998 Select set that were released before the Pinnacle Brands bankruptcy. A pack of two cards were released to Hobby dealers along with the sell sheets. The word "SAMPLE" was printed on the back of each card.

Non-promo Selected cards have surfaced of all players except Guerrero and Wright.

1 Vladimir Guerrero

2 Nomar Garciaparra

3 Ben Grieve

4 Travis Lee

5 Jose Cruz, Jr.

6 Alex Rodriguez

7 Todd Helton

8 Derek Jeter

9 Scott Rolen

10 Jaret Wright

[edit] Select Numbers

Select Numbers was intended to be a 20-card insert set, serial-numbered to a player statistic. Like with the base cards and Jersey Number parallels, a limited number of Select Numbers made their way "out the backdoor;" however, the cards were NOT serial-numbered. Only 12 of the 20 cards from this set have surfaced on the secondary market.

UPDATE 11/11/17 - TWO NEAR-COMPLETE SETS LISTED ON COMC IN NOVEMBER 2017 including the previously unconfirmed McGwire, Bagwell, Galarraga, Piazza, Gwynn, Walker, Lofton and Clemens. The checklist is now complete.

1 Mark McGwire

2 Juan Gonzalez

3 Ken Griffey, Jr.

4 Jeff Bagwell

5 Andres Galarraga

6 Frank Thomas

7 Mike Piazza

8 Tony Gwynn

9 Larry Walker

10 Kenny Lofton

12 Chuck Knoblauch

13 Derek Jeter

14 Nomar Garciaparra

15 Chipper Jones

16 Pedro Martinez

17 Hideo Nomo

18 Randy Johnson

19 Roger Clemens

20 Greg Maddux

[edit] Five-Star Bonus

Five-Star Bonus was intended to be a five-card quasi-parallel of the base set. The design is similar to that of the base set, but the cards are sequentially-numbered "X of 5." Each card is serial-numbered to 50 copies.

Mike Piazza was to have been card #5 in this set, but was replaced by Derek Jeter

Beginning around 2007, a number of these cards were sold (as complete five-card sets with matching serial-numbers) on eBay. Before then, singles were incredibly rare items.

[edit] Diamond Dominance

Diamond Dominance was to be a 10-card insert set. The only cards from the set confirmed to have reached the secondary market are Andruw Jones, Tony Clark and Darin Erstad.

? Darin Erstad

3 Andruw Jones

10 Tony Clark

[edit] Rare Form

The "Rare Form" insert set was on the original sell sheet, but no cards from the set has emerged on the secondary market.

UPDATE 11/11/17 - A Rogers Clemens was listed on ebay in November 2017.

The checklist was to be as follows:

1 Ken Griffey, Jr.

2 Roger Clemens

3 Cal Ripken, Jr.

4 Juan Gonzalez

5 Nomar Garciaparra

6 Alex Rodriguez

7 Chipper Jones

8 Mike Piazza
