1995 Pinnacle Zenith Edition Baseball


Despite my searches for some information on this set of cards, in particular the Zenith Edition, I have come up with very little. As can be seen from the wrapper there are chase cards. They consist of: 18 Z-team, 18 Rookie Roll Call and 18 All-Star Salute.
There are 6 cards per pack and a checklist for the chase cards.
Pack 1:
#7 Bernard Gilkey Cardinals
#27 Dennis Eckersley A's
#47 Jeff Bagwell Astros
#54 John Valetin Red Sox
#114 Gabe White Expos RC
#134 Derek Jeter Yankees RC(?)

Pack 2:
#31 Eric Karros Dodgers
#61 Ken Griffey Jr Mariners
#81 Paul Molitor Blue Jays
#109 Wil Cordero Expos
#129 Juan Acevedo Mets RC
#149 Nideo Nomo Dodgers RC
Pack 3:
#3 Andy Benes Mariners
#13 Carlos Baerga Indians
#53 Joe Carter Blue Jays
#96 Rusty Greer Rangers
#146 Alex Rodriguez Mariners RC
#17/18 Frank Thomas White Sox All-Star Salute
Pack 4:
#33 Frank Thomas White Sox
#63 Kevin Appier Royals
#76 Mike Piazza Dodgers
#83 Randy Johnson Mariners
#106 Vinny Castilla Rockies
#126 Joe Vitiello Royals RC
Pack 5:
#40 Kenny Rogers Rangers
#70 Mark Grace Cubs
#90 Robin Ventura White Sox
#122 Mark Grudzielanek Expos RC
#142 Antonio Osuna Dodgers RC
#48 Hideo Nomo Dodgers Japanese Card

What the? What is this Hideo Nomo card? Not to get side tracked, there was 1 Red Sox in the 5 packs, which is a poor showing. Greg will be pleased my Dodgers magnet was at full strength again. Also have a look at the numbers on the cards in each pack, there appears to be a distinct pattern.
