1997 Pinnacle Inside Chan Ho Park


(I have finally reached the 64th Cardboard Appreciation card since the last time we voted a card into the Cardboard Appreciation Hall of Fame. Way back in 2017! That means after this card, it’s time to vote one card from the most recent 64 into the the CA Hall with the fifth version of the Cardboard Appreciation Hall of Fame Tournament! I’m not sure how to do this since Blogger has removed the polling option. I could look around for another poll to upload. So, it’ll take me time to research that. Any suggestions are welcome. Meanwhile, it’s time for Cardboard Appreciation. This is the 312th in a series):

You guys have been holding out on me.

This is the final base card Dodger that I needed to complete the 1997 Pinnacle Inside team set. It was not Piazza or Nomo, as it traditionally is for this time period. It was Park and his wacky head band strolling through the dugout.

I did not discover the card was the lone one missing until I was recently filing my late ’90s Dodgers cards into Trading Card Database. I now have a much better idea of ​​what I need from those sets from that very murky time period when I was not collecting cards and the industry was bleeding cards from every pore.

Since I did not collect during this time, virtually all of the cards that I received from the late ’90s have come from other bloggers and other collectors who either did collect at this time or are doing a much better job of accumulating cards .

I’ve completed a lot of team sets through these means. But I do notice that I’m often not getting the full allotment. Beggars can not be choosers, but I’ve noticed this ever since my brothers and I received that grocery bag of mid-1950s cards way back when and all of the Yankees were missing.

It’s just weird when a card of a player like Chan Ho Park is the one that is missing. This is not 1994 Chan Ho Park, the latest sensation from overseas. It’s three years later. So it’s gotta be that head band, and type collectors who collect head bands, or wacky photos, or I do not know what. I just want my Dodgers.

So, I grabbed it recently for next to nothing and now the team set is complete.

I’ve moved on to updating Dodgers cards from 2000 and 2001 on TCDB, which is still when I wasn’t collecting.

I’ve noticed quite a few Gary Sheffield Dodgers cards that I need from that period, so maybe that’s what I’ll pursue next. I can knock off quite a few “just one card needed” team sets by doing that.

TCDB sure likes to remind you of what you do not have.
