1997 Pinnacle Zenith 8x10

You are looking at the "wrapper" for a pack of 1997 Pinnacle Zenith 8x10's. It is actually a thin cardboard box! The front features logos, an example card of Andruw Jones, and general information about the cards included.

The back features the Zenith 8x10 Checklist:

The first 8x10 out of the box? How about a Cal Ripken Jr Duflex!? WHAT!? Holy smokes!

The front features a black border with the player's name centered at the bottom. The center of the card shows the featured player. The images are wonderful quality. In the case of the Ripken, he is Duflex - a radial foil effect Pinnacle used on cards.

The backs feature another shot of the player plus his hit location stats, just for fun!

Next up, we pull an 8x10 of Albert Belle, former Indians player! Wahoo!!

Included in the box is a small pack of regular sized  cards, done with the same amazing quality photos. The backs look like the one above, only smaller. Oh yeah, we pulled Albert Belle! Yeap - A large and regular baseball card of the same player!

There was some pretty sweet photography in this set. My favorites were the Griffey, Gwynn, and Nomo.

Agreed. Pretty stellar photos, accentuated by the 8x10 format.

Are the backs of the regular-sized cards the same as their big brothers?

Is the Ripken available for trade? If so, I would love it!
