    Awesome Ripken. What a rush it must be to land that in one's collection. That will look super sweet in a PSA slab.

    Rumor has it a Sandberg exists, and in a collectors possession. Oh what I would give for that.

    Just an amazing card. Was Mirror Black unannounced that year? I know Beckett had something about it, but that might have been after reports of their existence surfaced and not necessarily from Pinnacle.

    If this came from where I think it came from there are going to be some amazing 90's Ripken inserts on the market.

    Neat to see a Ripken posted. I've been thinking about parting out my Ripkens for awhile but never have the balls to do it. Posts like that make me want to start buying again though, haha.

    Hey all! I'm new to this board, 1st post. A friend of mine posted this card for me... I'm actually the buyer of this Ripken. Couldn't believe it when I saw it! Have heard many stories but don't know the truth about these mirror blacks! Would love to hear from someone that is more knowledgeable on them!

    I think you're right, it was unannounced. I'd let GC confirm that but I'm pretty sure. I also think the people who have these have NO idea what they have. The Belle is probably in some closet in a dusty corner of some persons house where their kids use to live.

    Well, I just pooped my pants.

    Unnannounce "mistake" series of cards that were created and pack inserted during case print run #5 .

    I would love to hear the story on both Cal and Chipper.

    Wow, you even know the case print run How does one tell what print run a case comes out of?

    you dont.....they turned the presses on in an effort to make cash and save the company for 1998. This is why there are nearly 80 Mirror Golds not 30. Runs three through five were loaded with inserts. If you find a "hotter box" you have a later run case. but I have not seen a sealed case in a LONG time.
