1990 Pacific Baseball Legends

I bought this box back in January along with the 1993 O-Pee-Chee Premier box. It really should be a $5 or $10 box, but in today's world of overinflated prices, it was $17.95. 

There are 36 packs in the box, and 10 cards in each pack. 

The set is only 110 cards and the collation was perfect...3 sets and 30 cards towards a 4th.

The box ran the gamut of players long retired..
. players still on the roster.

The backs were easily readable for these ancient eyes.

Card 1 starts off as it should.

It was cool to see some long time managers in their playing days.

You didn't always see players in the uniform they are most associated with. 

Lots of players with long careers in their younger days.

Apparently Pacific borrowed O-Pee-Chee's 1980's butter knife to cut the cards.

These are also the types of sets where everyone can be a legend.


But when it is all said and done, it's a great way to get cards of players that I don't have very many of!

Thanks for reading!

  1. $17.95 does seem to be a bit steep. As much as I enjoy these sets, it's hard to imagine that anyone would be grading any of them, so I don't know why the box prices would be inflated. And I know that it bothers some people, but I like the OPC-style rough-cut borders, it gives the cards some character.
