    1998 Zenith Z Gold numbered /100

    Hi guys, I'm finally doing some organizing work on my Bernie Williams PC, trying to get everything in binders so I can enjoy it more and have more of a handle on what I am still looking for and I noticed today that I have two different copies of 1998 Zenith Z Gold, one is numbered to 100 on the back and the other is not. I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with these, is one more difficult to find than the other, are the unnumbered ones an unmarked promo of some sort? Any info you guys have would be great. Thanks!

    The unnumbered copies were sold off during the bankruptcy...I don't know how many were released though.

    I agree with what Bunchobull said. my personal opinion is that there must be no more than 100 of the unnumbered copies, assuming a 1:1 replacement ratio, and likely less.

    given the infrequency with which these cards pop up I'd recommend going nabbing what you can find if the price is right. I have both the Piazza #d and NNO versions but have never seen either of Pedro Martinez.
    I collect Pedro Martinez, Mike Piazza, Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers prospects and Trevor Bauer (and anything nice that catches my eye)

    One the reasons the '98 Z Golds are so tough is because they are only found inside the 5 x 7 cards. So essentially you have to destroy another card to find one of these. These were the "rip" cards of the 90's.

    I have a feeling many of these are contained inside the 5 x 7 Z Silvers and the 5 x 7 Z Golds (which also happen to be #ed to 100).

    I broke a box of this a little while back. All the inserts were in the middle 5x7 including the 5x7 inserts (which were also always the middle 5x7). I broke open the two 5x7 Z-Silver's out of curiosity but they both had base cards. My guess is that there are no regular issue inserts inside insert 5x7's.

    I'd agree that the unnumbered were bankruptcy auction items. Both my 5x7 and regular Z-Golds are numbered out of /100. I was told by dealers that broke the product that they had no better odds pulling silvers and golds from the Impulse 5x7's than they did from the base 5x7's.

    Thanks for the information guys! I really am enjoying this board, learning a lot and so impressed with the player collectors here. Since I started the thread I figured it was only right for me to show off my Zenith Bernie's

    Def tough cards , as are the 97 Diamond Edition Pinnacle Inside cards. The way of distribution and the fact they weren't broken a lot make them tough finds for player collectors. I still need both Clark's.

    Be wary of purchasing loose 5 x 7 cards in the hopes of finding inserts inside. These cards were searchable with a flashlight in a dark room (if they contained base cards the light shone through the card if it was an insert the light didn't shine through). I wouldn't touch any opened product as it's more than likely been searched.
