Project Pedro Trade Recap Part 26:1997 New Pinnacle Hobby Box Break Part 1

October has officially been named, Cards I Got From Project Pedro Blog Month.

The final box break of my trade was a doozy. Sadly it was also the cheapest of the group and provided the best. I knew all about New Pinnacle as I opened a ton of it in baseball and football form in 1997. So there wasn't going to be a lot of surprises, except one that was found in this box.....POSTING TOMORROW.

While we wait another day for the hits, I wanted to talk about the fun base cards. The design is very sharp and provides crystal clear photography, however, there are some fun base cards to view of QB's. Since Pinnacle was all about the QB's.

Up first, it's Super MVP man Brett Favre!

Boomer Esiason is here to teach you how not to be a QB. Sorry Boomer...

Slash Stewart here to CUT through your defense.

Elway ready to rocket to a Super Bowl win!

And nobody rocks harder than Kerry. The King Of Panthers football in the 90s!
I don't think we will ever see base cards done like this again so it's fun to see them when you find em. The 90's provided a lot of fun with base especially with Pinnacle and Upper Deck products. Something we don't find so much today.

I will be posting the rest of the break tomorrow including the hits and major hit I found in the box.

Leave your thoughts on your favorite card of the group below and let me know if you like base cards being "fun" every so often.


  1. These staged photos scream so 90s to me that I would prefer more candid shots than posed photos.

  2. That Kordell Stewart was one of my favorite Steelers cards in the 90's.


    I don't think anyone can beat giant scissors.

  4. Needless to say with no Browns in 1997, I didn't collect anything from this set.
