Lastly, the Smoltz card back — a pretty standard card back, featuring full stat lines and bio information. Nice addition of another couple photos, though.

This was a fun break, and like I said I have always loved the Museum Collection parallels. There were a couple inserts we didn’t find in this box though.

Team Pinnacle inserts were found 1 in every 90 packs.

Carlos Delgado Super Rookie inserts were found just 1 in every 360 packs. I didn’t land one.

    1994 Pinnacle was my 3rd ever busted product as a collector, so thanks for bringing back some good memories. Even though I also never came across the rare inserts, 1994 Pinnacle photos were awesome at the time.

    Love breaking boxes from this era, so affordable compared to when they were released. Museum Collection is my all-time favorite parallel set!

    Just curious, did you have problems with the glossy coating/gold foil stamping sticking together?
