1998 Pinnacle Indians Team Snapshots

In the 90's, two companies that experimented with all kinds of ways to get folks into collecting were Pacific and Pinnacle (Score). One example presents itself in this set of "Team Snapshots." These items were sold in packs of 8 photos. There are 18 total images per team. Not every team had a set, though. Only 15 of the MLB teams were represented in the "Snapshot" sets. I'm glad the Indians was one of those teams!

I am posting a break of one pack over on A Pack To Be Named Later, which covers more of the design aesthetics, etc. But, I will tell you that it took me 7 packs to get the whole set. The main reason it took so many? #15 (John Smiley) kept eluding me.

The set comes with a checklist on top of all the packs in the box (these were sold in boxes of 25 packs). The snapshots themselves are 5x7 photos taken during Spring Training, or so it appears anyway.

Here is the full set of Tribers:


  1. I've got the Mets team set and I really like these sets. The only thing I would've changed is I'd have the player's name "handwritten" on the back.

  2. Never seen this set before. Nice looking!
