    The sun isn't the issue really, it's the harmful potential of UV light from any source; incandescent or halogen display lights produce the same UV waves the sun produces. That said, many plastics deteriorate independently over time, some are less likely, and some react or react more readily with a catalyst like acidic PVC byproducts or sunlight.

    The 99 EX gold acetate mystery has not been solved but it seems that anyone who still supports the "sun turns the card a beautiful and completely even gold coloration" without providing new evidence, has, ahem, been out in the sun too long!

    I posted this in here in 2016, but since the images are likely lost to Photobucket...

    Here is a regular 99 EX Manny Ramirez:


    Here is that card after being left out in the sun for 6 straight weeks, enough to almost entirely degrade the blue sharpie:


    Here is a gold one:

    I’m a little confused by the Purple Set PWCC listing. Sandberg is pictured in the set as a “season” card but I believe that was pack issued.

    I think we're getting too hung up on the "sun." Some plastics turn yellow in the sun, some don't. Some turn yellow with other catalysts. Some don't. Some are structurally unstable and turn yellow on their own; that's likely the case with cards like the Ultra Diamond Producers as well as many '99 eX examples. Plastics aren't perfect, one of the most finicky materials to manufacture with; not all cards produced are likely to have the exact chemical composition. However, the sheer fact that eX-es have been found with yellowing everywhere but where the overlaying sticker price tag blocked UV light suggests at least some of these cards are affected by the sun. This debate really baffles me; these "gold" cards are atrocious. The printed logos are even yellow. No quality department would ever produce something like that, proof or otherwise.

    Let the MLB know you’d like to see UD back. The license comes up in a couple years and they listen on social media.

    It's unfortunate to see the way the 24-card Epix lots are being listed.

    "1998 Pinnacle Epix Purple Bankruptcy Test Issue SET Griffey Jr Jeter (PWCC) Rare Purple Complete 24/24 Card Set" is inaccurate because 'Bankruptcy', 'Test Issue', 'Complete 24/24' card set are all misleading and incorrect words/phrases.


    The title should actually read something like:

    1998 Pinnacle Zenith Full Epix Set: full listing of all Purple Parallel Epix cards released in 1998 Zenith. Then rinse and repeat for the Orange and Emerald Parallels.

    Thanks. This Rolen card is one of my favorites. Great player and a great insert set from the 1990s. I just love it. Good luck in your quest for A-Rod.

    I agree about the PWCC listing. If someone wins the lots, I’d be interested in the “Season” Ryno’s.
