1997-98 NHL Pinnacle Certified

While Topps has Finest set Pinnacle has Certified. Like Topps Finest the card has UV coating you peel off. I usually leave it on the cards. There are six cards in a pack.
Each pack has half of the checklist and Paul Henderson framed set offer that is limited to 500 requests and paying almost $200 US. Paul Henderson is a hero in Canada for leading Team Canada in victory against USSR in 1972 Summit Cup.
60 - Alexander Mogilny - it got the chrome while highlighting the player while background goes to gray. Back of card has picture shot and Bowman-esence stats against the teams he faced the previous season. What else have Pinnacle lifted from Topps?
33 - Mike Modano
49 - Adam Oates
105 - Dino Ciccarelli - he finished his career in Florida playing season and half with Lightning before going to Florida Panthers.
I got redemption card I cannot redeem missing out by almost two decades. As for the player it was Marc Savard
17 - Ken Wregget - surprised he's on this set. He split time with Patrick Lalime and Lalime played better in goal and stats-wise than he did in the season.

Three packs down, few to go. Who's ready for hockey?

That redemption card be worth a parallel universe perhaps. I did enjoy this series of hockey much more than finest. I can't ever recall really liking anything topps put out for hockey.
