1995 Pinnacle #384
















Card Review: 8.9  I've always like this card, and set for that matter.  It's very similar to the '96 Pinnacle design, yet that one is awful.  Little details make a big difference.

Fun Fact: You may notice that the batting helmet Wallach is wearing on this card has no ear-flaps.  The Wikipedia page for "batting helmets" list Wallach as one of the four last players to wear a flapless helmets after being grandfathered in when they were banned in 1983 (Tim Raines was the last player to wear one in 2002 with the Marlins).  I've never actually seen a photo of Wallach wearing flapless helmet in an actual at-bat.  I believe he only wore them during batting practice. 

Number of this card in my collection: 3
