Rocky Coppinger, 1997 Pinnacle Museum Collection #175
Cards with heavy amounts of foil, chrome, and all of those other bells and whistles usually don't transfer well to the scanner, so I was pleasantly surprised by how this one turned out. A bit of Googling tells me that the effect Pinnacle used for their Museum Collection parallels was "Dufex", aluminum lined paper sprayed with transparent UV inks and hand-etched. Rocky Coppinger is the only guy I've got handy, but I wouldn't mind tracking down the rest of the team set.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
