Description

1996 Summit is a 200-card, single-series, set produced by Pinnacle Brands and released in July 1996. Their slogan on the box read "Half The Battle Is Knowing What To Collect...Pinnacle." The Big Bang Mirage insert set was touted as "the first-ever floating hologram" card. "Tilt the Mirage card into the light to witness a holographic image floating off the card. You've never sen anything like it!"

1996 Summit also held a contest to win every box of 1997 Pinnacle Branded Product (all sports). In order to win you had to collect the entire 16-card Mirage insert set (which in itself was seeded at 1:72 packs then the cards had to carry the same sequential number!) This is virtually impossible to attain.

Distribution

Hobby: 18 packs per box, seven cards per pack (MSRP: $2.99)

Collectors that managed to piece together a complete set of Big Bang Mirage cards could then send it in to Pinnacle in exchange for one box of every 1997 Pinnacle baseball product. Collectors that managed to piece together a complete set with matching serial numbers could exchange that set for one box of every 1997 Pinnacle product from every sport.
