    I never seen one heck I didn't even know you could get press plates in them but according to this you can:

    You also have a shot at a Press Plate (from this set) and a Certified Souvenir. The Press Plates still do nicely with a Brendan Shanahan recently going over $200. As for the Certified Souvenirs, I’m curious what those are (they were offered in various Pinnacle sports sets that year).


    If you find one lmk would love to see what it is.

    I tried googling it. Seems like they were inserted into most (all?) Pinnacle products that year. 1 in Inside... Certified had a couple, etc.

    I have no idea what they were.

    A seller on ebay that has unopened cans for sale says the Certified Souvenir may have been a redemption card that would be expired by now. Don't know how true that is as that is the only thing I could find about the single card.

    If there's only one card and the odds are 1:64,800 packs, does that mean there are only 64,800 packs total?

    It doesn't seem right if that is the case. For the Executive Collection inserts, there are 90 cards with odds of 1:57 packs. That would be about 12 Execuive Collection of each card (64,800 ÷ 57 ÷ 90). With how low they sell for, it seems like there are a lot more than that of each one.

    Just for the lockdown boredom of it, let's assume there were 100 made of each Executive Collection. 100 x 90 x 57 = 513,000 packs. That's if there were only 100 of each EC. Wouldn't that make the odds for the Certified Souvenir 1:513,000?

    Or do I just not understand pack odds correctly?

    I was curious also so i did some poking around and figured it out. The "certified souvenir" is a game used puck. 10 were available

    I'm not sure what was up with the odds. I opened a few of these cans a month ago and i think i got those in the packs. I can't remember because i generally throw those things away. But I'm assuming the odds translate to there being 648,000 packs produced. That seems pretty low for a 90s product.

    That is awesome thanks for the link.

    How are you figuring those odds? As I am assuming you win a puck that was inserted in the can via redemption card. As you have no idea how many game used pucks were inserted in the cans it sure if we can even guess the number of cans produced. As I seen they had 10 cans for the NPN contestthat cannot be extrapolated into how many cans imo.

    I pulled a redemption from Pinnacle (not sure what product) during this time period. I am guessing it was a mail in redemption. This is about the time that they filed for Bankruptcy or went out of business. I figured I wasn't going to get anything since that was happening. I wound up getting a box in the mail with two game used pucks with no certificate. Keep in mind this was over twenty years ago, so I may be off on some of the information.

    I will have to dig them out. Currently a little immobile due to a leg injury and trips to the dungeon only happen once a day. Plus I have to figure out where they are.
