Another Cavalcade Of Griffey XIII

One of my favorite companies over the years has been Pacific. Their early baseball products are rather plain and in the 90s they only had MLB’s Spanish license, so all of their baseball cards were bilingual, something they did carry over in to the early 2000s even after getting a full MLB license.

It was about 1998 when they started to play with die-cuts and other oddities for their sets and this is where this card comes in to the picture. One of the cool inserts in the various sets were the Net Fusions die-cuts, cards cut in to a shape based on the insert name and strings added to give it a net like look. This is the In The Cage insert from the 2000 Pacific Crown Collection but some of the other Net Fusions are Dugout View and Foul Pole.

  1. I didn't really start appreciating Pacific's die-cut inserts until I jumped back into the hobby 10 years ago. For years... they were my least favorite card company with all of that gold foil they'd use. I'm still not a huge fan of their base cards... but their die-cut inserts are some of the finest around.
