Oct 19--15 Players

For all you new readers, since March I have been posting an autograph of a player who is celebrating their birthday on said day. However, today I have nothing for any of the 15 players who share today as their birthdate.


Welcome to another installment of ripping a pack...or in this case a can.

This is an unopened can of 97/98 Pinnacle Inside............This is the first time they ever put cards in a can.........Comes with 10 cards in can..................Who could be in there? .......Open it up or just save it the way it is........Time to open it up.

But wait. What's this warning on the lid.

Open with adult supervision. Hmm ...My dog Brodie is here and will stand in as the adult.

Nope, not mine. The cards have been freed with no injuries.

Cellophane pack of ten cards. Doesn't appear to be any inserts. No special markings or anything.

I could also have entered sweepstakes to win one of ten NHL game used pucks from the 97/98 season.

I could also order a can holder to show off all 24 cans.

Nothing to exciting here. I have a few more cans, even one with the gold top.  
At least the Leafs came back to win in a shootout tonight. Hopefully I can finish off the month shwoing some more autographed stuff.

  1. Kazi, these Pinnacle Inside cans were one of my favorite sets as a kid. I loved tearing open the tin and for some time attempted to keep to all in my bedroom on display. I personally like the look of the cards as well and the tid-bits of trivia on the back, deff a unique brand.

    I remember seeing a few gold topper cans before, I always wondered if they held anything special inside. Nice post.
