PINNACLE AND TOPPS ADD EXTRA NHL SET
Published April 3, 1995
Add Pinnacle and Topps to the list of card companies "taking advantage of the decision" by the NHL Enterprises and NHLPA to allow each licensed company to print a new brand this year in lieu of a second series from a previously-released brand. Pinnacle will replace the second series of Score Hockey with Select Hockey. NHL Enterprises and the NHLPA had granted Donruss, Fleer, Pinnacle, Topps and Upper Deck the rights to produce only two sets and avoid "glutting the market." After the lockout, these companies were allowed to produce a third set. Topps will introduce Topps Finest Hockey May 16 (Jay Preble, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 4/1).
