Welcome to BA Benny's Pack Rip Cafe. Today I will feature a pack of 1993 Pinnacle Series 1 that I scored from the Vend-O-Pack machine as I like to call it. It cost me 75 cents and there are 15 cards in this pack. I grabbed a few of these so I will save some for down the road.

These cards have a nice simple design with just a little foil to dress them up a bit and I like the photography of mostly in game action shots. In a time where there weren't so many insert sets, the subsets numbered in the regular checklist are nice. An interesting thing too is that the wrappers have different players on front and different offers/information on back.
I got 3 packs with 3 different fronts and backs.
I got 4 keepers out of this pack. Murray, Gwynn, Griffey, and Strawberry. The rest are up for grabs.
Rating: I will rate this one a infield single. The 4 keepers are great players and a few others as well plus an insert with 4 others in subsets gets this pack the cheapest of hits, but at least it's a hit.
