2013 Pinnacle Baseball Cards Details
Panini America’s 2013 baseball slate will included a revival of the Pinnacle brand in the form of 2013 Pinnacle Baseball.
Packing two autographs in each 24-pack hobby box, it will carry a suggested retail price of $2.99 a pack and include a meaty lineup of inserts and parallels to go with a 200-card base set that includes 50 Rookie Cards.
Each box includes the two autos along with three Museum Collection parallels printed with Nufex technology, two Artist’s Proofs, 10 other inserts, three Clear Vision plastic inserts, five more Nufex cards and five additional plastic cards — 29 total inserts per box, according to the company.
The Artist’s Proofs are hobby-only inserts, while other standard inserts will include Team 2020 (10 players), Awaiting the Call (10 cards), Position Powers (20), Behind the Numbers (10) and five cards each for Looking Back and The Hit King.
The Nufex inserts will include 10 Team Pinnacle cards, 15 Slugfests, 10 Aces, 12 The Naturals and eight Z-Teamers. Plastic inserts will include 16 Pinnacle of Success, 16 Swing For the Fences, 12 Essence of the Game and eight Skylines cards.
The product also includes a five-card tribute insert to Pete Rose — who can appear on cards here because they are not MLB Properties-approved — called The Hit King.
