The Albert Belle Collector
Entire Private Collection: 2,626/2,891 - 90.8%
Accomplished my impossible quest for +90% in October 2016
My set came directly from the Pinnacle. I had several good friend there and I never heard discussion about a variation in this set; other sets but not here. Just my two cents.

Hey George. Do you have the full 100 card set? Is Omar Vizquel and Juan Gonzalez in the finalized set? I know they are "supposed to be" but that isn't always the case with the card companies, especially one that was an online redemption. There has been a few players over the years collector's have asked me about and it would be nice to be able to at least confirm their identity. I've been told Gonzalez definitely exists and that it definitely doesn't exist. All I can speak of is that I've definitely NEVER seen it personally. Any help????
This is a really great thread! Thank you pootshwan for making me aware of it.
Here are the two variations of the 1996 Pinnacle First Pitch Preview side-by-side. These were scanned the exact same way, at the exact same time. The card on the left is the correct holo-foil version, while the card on the right is the flat-bronze variation.

This and other Pinnacle products had numerous printing hues and tints. These were unintended and linked to the printing process. The color differences might be cool but I think the hunt for rare variations has many collector seeing differences in cards which are not truly there......just my opinion.
There are at least 2 bronze Thomas', I have the other. I know there was another one of someone else but can't remember who (maybe Griffey) because the seller was selling a bunch of FPP and I remember seeing at least 3 that were bronze in the 10 or so he was selling over the few months he was letting them go. I believe it is the wrong foil type but I still think of it as a variation.
