    I look for the PP Jumbo of Big Frank daily...still looking. I'm actually building the set since I have so many of the other players now.

    1993 UD IOOSS Jumbo
    A 3 1/2" X 5" jumbo version was also produced, exclusively to retail re-packs, which contained one pack of each 1993 Upper Deck series. The jumbos cards are each serial-numbered to 10,000 copies.

    1998 Zenith
    1998 Zenith is a 100-card set released by Pinnacle Brands in May, 1998. Dubbed the "Dare to Tear" set, each pack had three 5" X 7" cards with one 2 1/2" X 3 1/2" standard-sized card embedded inside. In one of the stupidest gimmicks ever conceived, collectors were faced with the dilemma of having to choose to keep their jumbo 5" X 7" card in-tact, or to tear open (and thus physically destroying) the jumbo card to get to the standard-sized card. Ultimately, collectors by and large chose to perform "Cardboard Caesarians" by slice the backs of the jumbo cards with a razor blade to remove the smaller card.

    Based on reports from collectors who opened large amounts of '98 Zenith packs, the middle jumbo card in each pack usually has a standard-sized insert embedded in it.

    5 X 7 Impluse
    All 80 5 X 7 cards are available in the following Impulse parallels.
    *Impulse
    *Gold Impulse (serial numbered to 100 copies)

    2001 Donruss Rookie Reprints

    Since Ken Griffey, Jr. was under an exclusive autograph contract to Upper Deck, Donruss was unable to have him autograph any of his DKR cards. Since he was the only player unable to sign, Donruss simply made a special un-autographed parallel numbered to only 89 copies, to round out the set. As mentioned in the listing for the regular DKR's, the Griffey, Jr. is an un-corrected error, as the card reprinted was in the 1990 Donruss set, not the '89 one.

    1999 Black Diamond

    Each base card is available in one of three "Diamond" parallels: Double, Triple, and Quadruple. Each is serial-numbered to the following production figures EXCEPT the cards of Sammy Sosa, Ken Griffey, Jr., and Mark McGwire.
    Double (Red foil): short set, 3000; Debuts, 2500
    Triple (Yellow foil): short set, 1500; Debuts, 1000
    Quadruple (Green foil): short set, 150; Debuts, 100
    For Sosa, Griffey, and McGwire their Double, Triple, and Quadruple Diamond parallels are as follows.
    Double (serial-numbered to 1998)
    Triple (Sosa: 273 copies, Griffey: 350, McGwire: 457)
    Quadruple (Sosa: 66 copies, Griffey: 56, McGwire: 70)
    The Triple Diamonds were serial-numbered to their career home run total after the 1998 season. The Quadruple Diamonds were numbered to their 1998 season home run total.

    1997 Topps ProShooters Marbles was a test issue believed to have been released only in Canada in the summer of 1997. Each pack contained two, 1" diameter, marbles and one of two checklists.

    1998 Donruss

    Nuff' Said..........


    A number of additional Crusade cards were produced by Donruss for future 1998 and 1999 baseball card sets, but were never officially released due to the bankruptcy of Pinnacle Brands. All players in the Crusade set were to have two styles for all three colors: a "base" and "Call to Arms" (CTA) subset. However, the 2nd style for many players were never officially released due to the bankruptcy.

    1997 Score
    Stand & Deliver Gold

    Stand & Deliver Gold was a parallel limited to 250 sets and came encased in a glass frame -- with each frame (but not the cards) serial-numbered. Because of the unusual distribution, Stand and Deliver Gold singles are difficult to find, and when they are found, tough to find in mint condition. The Gold cards came in two different flavors: with the words "STAND & DELIVER" in either silver or red letters. It is believed that the first 25 framed sets had the red letters, with the remaining 225 sets were silver lettered.

    I was searching for Mattingly. He is on the back in this pack, but horrible OC on the back of the card. Have to assume the front is similar.

    1996 Liberty Satellite Sports

    The '96 Liberty Sports set is one of the rarest and most condition sensitive oddball sets on the market today. They were issued in complete set form and were often found in rough shape due to packaging them in tight wrappers. Not to mention, they were distributed to employees of the company who probably gave them to their kids or tossed them away.

    2005 Donruss
    Inside View
    This insert set was, for reasons that still remain unclear, withdrawn from production. However, again for reasons unclear, some Inside Views made their way into packs.

    Originally, each card was to have been serial-numbered to 1000 copies with a Black parallel numbered to 50. The cards that made their way into packs are NOT serial-numbered.

    It appears that anywhere from five to 25 copies of each card made their way into packs. A parallel refractor-like, "rainbow" version of these cards exist, however the print run is unknown.

    2001 Stadium Club
    Super Teams
    Similar to the promotion in 1994 Stadium Club, Super Teams is a 30-card set with one card for each Major League Team. If the team depicted won their 2001 Division Title (Astros, Braves, Indians, and Mariners), the card could be redeemed for a special 30-card Super Team Exchange set (see below). If the team won their League Championship (Yankees), the card would be good for the Super Team Exchange set and a randomly selected 11 X 14 Autograph (see below).

    If the team won the 2001 World Series, which wound up being the Arizona Diamondbacks, the winner would receive the Super Team Exchange set, a randomly selected 11 X 14 Autograph, and be entered into a drawing for two season tickets to the team of the winner's choice for the 2002 season. Each Super Team card had to be redeemed by December 1, 2001.

    Super Team Exchange

    All six winning cards in the Super Teams promotion received this 30-card set -- essentially a partial-parallel, with one player from each team depicted.

    And I was happy with the base card. :smile:

    This was a partial-parallel as only the 150 Uncommon/Silver and Rare/Gold base cards had an embossed parallel. Each Embossed parallel is imprinted to create a raised image of the player on the front. The Gold Embossed versions had a die-cut, "deckled" edge on all four sides to further distinguish from the base set.

    1993 Select Dufex Insert Promos is a set of baseball cards from 1993 that was back doored into the secondary marketplace when Pinnacle Brands went bankrupt. Unlike many other promo sets, the cards were not released to hobby stores or media members prior to the release of the 1993 Select baseball card set. The cards appear to be Proofs of the Chase Stars, Chase Rookies and Aces insert sets in 1993 Select. The key difference is that the backs are completely blank. The card may have been test cards for the Dufex printing technology. It is unknown how of these cards exist or what the full checklist could be.

    2006 Upper Deck Frito Lays
    This 30 card set is regular size, measuring 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". Single cards were inserted into bags of Fritos for a very short period of time and I believe they were only available at Wal-Marts. Someone on the marketing end seemed to have dropped the ball because there is no mention of frito lays or a logo anywhere on the card.

    1997 Fleer
    Soaring Stars

    This set is also available in a "Glowing" parallel. Towards the end of the production run, Fleer ran out of the "starry" holographic foil used on the regular Soaring Stars, and switched to a "glowing" foil. It is believed that 10%-20% of the total production run was printed on "glowing" foil.
