    Two different collectors have confirmed the existence of all 100 cards in the set. While I do not have a picture of a Juan, I trust these two

    I was under bidder on McGriff diamond destiny, glad it was you that landed it! Only 60% or so complete on my gold set so not in a rush to get it finished. My best guess is 100 or so of each Gold are out there. Although I have 7 Tony Gwynn golds which is weird.

    And FWIW I have no empirical basis for the 100 estimate. Just like you - I have been looking for many years and never see them. Further challenge was the distribution method. I was a teenage kid in 1996 and bought tons of these Upper Deck Tech packs in midwestern Wal-Marts. So many of these were opened by novice retail collectors 20 years ago. Scattered to the wind at this point. So even if 200 or 300 were printed only a fraction likely remain.

    I always hate to see I outbid a forum member. I just got the silver one recently as well. There is one on COMC I believe but I just thought it was too high. I will keep you in mind should I see one pop up.

    The McGwire crew came up with the same number years ago. We also noticed many people thought their gold was bronze, and oftentimes the gold scans look bronze as well which makes them even harder to come by.

    Anyone help me out? I thought the bankruptcy versions were consistent with those known to be released in the never was 1998 Pinnacle Certified. So, what in the heck are these? The numbering is consistent with the All-Star version (E24), but these are definitely not that.

    Tough tough cards. I have one Ozzie still. I had 2 for a long time and sent the other off to another Ozzie collector friend over a decade ago. I've only seen one other offered for sale in all that time. There might be 100. There might be 50. I don't know. I just know they never show up.

    Whoa. Major whoa. These Nomo Epix Season cards were never released and never on the original checklist - this is an incredible find and I've never seen a non-All-Star Epix Nomo.

    In the main Epix set (Play, Game, Season, Moment - released in Pinnacle, Score, and Zenith packs), card #E24 was supposed to beEddie Murray
    In the All-Star Epix set (released in Score R/T and Pinnacle Plus packs), card #E24 was Nomo.

    The All-Star Epix set was released in products that came out in late summer of '98 (i.e., after Pinnacle, Score, and Zenith) and they must have updated the checklist by replacing Murray with Nomo - the only difference between the main Epix set and the All-Star Epix set was the inclusion of Nomo/removal of Murray.

    Thus, according to the official checklists, Nomo never should have had an Epix Play, Game, Season, or Moment. Given that his Epix Season do indeed exist, I imagine a Play, Game, and Moment Nomo also exists. These Nomo Epix cards were included in the Pinnacle Bankruptcy Find of October 2017 - the intrigue of the DLP bankruptcy continues to grow!

    Soon we will all find out that they produced 5,000 sets of 1998 Select.

    I've been thinking this through and I'd wager that ONLY a season version of Nomo exists. The Play, Game and Moment Eddie Murray were in regularly released packs. The Murray Season was slated for Pinnacle Certified - #E24. Based on the timeline of releases, the All-Star version of E24 was subbed from Murray to Nomo which would've lined up with the Certified release of E24 (Season). Unless we've seen a Murray Season among the bankruptcy releases, I'd say that Murray does not exist and Nomo was slated for Pinnacle Certified instead.
