We are the up to pack #24 of 1997 Pinnacle X Press, but this pack would more likely be titled “Dudes from the ’96 Dodgers” (that was lame, but you get my point), because out of 7 cards, 4 of them are Dodgers. Go figure. Here we go!
#17 Ken Hill Texas Rangers
#150 Hideo Nomo Chase Checklist Los Angeles Dodgers
#104 Raul Mondesi Los Angeles Dodgers (1994 NL Rookie of the Year)
#145 Tony Clark Peak Performers Detroit Tigers (Tony was the 2nd overall player selected in the 1990 draft)
#16 Mike Piazza Los Angeles Dodgers (Piazza was a 62nd round pick in the 1988 draft, and was the 1993 NL Rookie of the Year)
#??? Joe Carter Swing for the Fences Game Card
#10 Hideo Nomo Los Angeles Dodgers (Nomo was the National League Rookie of the Year in 1995, do you see a pattern? Many great rookie players, great farm system, but how many pennants did these guys deliver?)
#65 Will Clark Texas Rangers (Will the Thrill didn’t bring home a ROY Award or a ring or an MVP, but he’s still one of the most popular players out there… Popular with the fans, not necessarily with the Baseball Writers)
Wow, we are 2/3 of the way there with this brand! Bring on the end! Check out the previous post(s) for info on the caption contest and win a free slot in the next break just for making fun of relief pitchers… Troll out.
