Flashback Product of the Week – Pinnacle Inside

Over the years cards have been packaged in a lot of different ways.  Before Pinnacle died back in 1998, one of their last products they released was the second version of their Pinnacle Inside cards.  What made these cards unique wasn’t just the design of the cards, but the package they came in.  Instead of your standard wax or foil pack, Pinnacle Inside cards came in a clear plastic pack that was then inserted into a sealed soup can.  I don’t know where they came up with the idea that collectors would enjoy opening soup cans to obtained their cards, but this has to be one of the top craziest packaging ideas a card company has ever come up with.  WARNING!!!  DON’T TRY OPENING ANY OF THESE WITH YOUR TEETH!!!
