Barry Larkin Collection 554: 1992 Score - #50 - '90s Impact Players Insert

Barry Larkin
Year:  1992
Brand:  Score
Insert set:  '90s Impact Players
Card number:  50

The 1992 Score set had a 90 card insert set called '90s Impact Players.  I believe you could only track the cards down in specially marked "super packs" (with the inserts seeded five-per-pack).  Despite 1992 being a year of overproduced baseball cards, I had never seen this particular Barry Larkin card until blog reader John H. contacted me with a scan of the card asking if I needed it.

Now that I have the card safely tucked away in my Barry Larkin Collection binder, I can report that according to my records I own 32 out of the 61 different Barry Larkin cards produced in 1992.  Of the remaining missing cards, most are either inserts or parallels (or oddballs that are even trickier to track down) but there are still a couple of cards that should be quite easy to find (including Larkin's Bowman base card which has eluded me thus far).

No matter, it's nice to be able to mark off one more card from the early 90s...and since this was the first time I actually ever saw the card, it's all that much sweeter that it is now mine!  Thanks for sending it my way, John.

1999 Pacific: Do You Miss Card Company Reward Programs?

As I've ripped my box of 1999 Pacific, one thing I've noticed is that every pack of '99 Pacific is worth 2 Pacific Points.

The Pacific Points was a program that (presumably) was intended to convince collectors to spend more money on Pacific products in order to score sweet, free Pacific swag.  I have no idea how successful said program actually was but since Pacific went under I'm guessing the program couldn't have been too successful.

While it may have failed for Pacific, I'm wondering if a card company in today's marketplace couldn't do something similar...and if they did, would it help them at all with collectors?

Pack 25:
60.  Cal Ripken, Jr.

A great head shot variation card.  Love the blue sky in the background.

70.  Mark McGwire

Most images in the 1999 Pacific set are standard, so the few true action shots stand out that much more.

94.  Kerry Wood
99.  Mike Caruso
129.  Mike Jackson
205.  Jeff King
253.  David Ortiz
254.  A.J. Pierzynski
395.  Jeff Fassero
411.  Mike Kelly

That pack had a lot of great names in it too, especially for its time!

1999 Pacific: Two-Thirds Complete!

This is the 24th pack out of the 1999 Pacific box...and with it, we hit the two-thirds mark of the box.  So far, I've been impressed with Pacific's collation (no duplicates through the first 23 packs) which is excellent since I hope to eventually complete the base set for my own collection!  Let's hope the lack of duplicates carries through the final third of the box...but before we can find out, we need to open up pack #24.

Pack 24:
7.  Shigetoshi Hasegawa
32.  Chipper Jones

Jones looks like he just dropped a stinky fart on someone in the batting cage and then walked away.  

38.  Dennis Martintez
67.  Tom Gordon
134.  Manny Ramirez

Head shot variation.
162.  Damion Easley
234.  John Jaha
265.  Dustin Hermanson
306.  Mike Blowers
381.  Stan Javier

That does it for the first two-thirds of the box.  So far, so good...and I've enjoyed all the comments throughout the box break from my readers.  It's made busting the box that much more fun for me!

Trade Stack 83: Going Through my 2015 Baseball Cards

Here is how this works:
Every so often (i.e. whenever I feel like it), I will add a card to a "Trade Stack".  Whenever the stack becomes appealing enough to someone, that person needs to comment on the post saying they'd like to claim the stack AND tell me which card they are sending off of my want list.  That's all you have to do - trade me ONE card (or more, of course) card from my want list for the entire stack of cards that I'm offering.  Each time, it will be first come, first serve...so act quickly (unless of course you are a gambler and hope to wait it out until there are 10+ cards in the stack that you want in exchange for a single 2004 UD Vintage card that I am looking for)!

The Trade Stack:
Last update: 9/23/17

I spent a good chunk of this gorgeous afternoon sitting in the man cave (aka basement) organizing my cards from the year 2015.  As part of my organizing, I had to make some tough choices in terms of which sets I'd continue to chase after and which sets I'd give up on.  One set that didn't make the "collecting cut" is 2015 Topps Heritage - mostly because I'm still stuck in neutral on about half a dozen previous year's editions of Heritage!  That said, my loss is your potential gain as today's addition to the Trade Stack is an insert from 2015 Heritage.  Perhaps the card will be the one that causes someone to claim the entire pile (which has a rather eclectic mix of cards in it now)!

Remember, you get the entire Trade Stack in exchange for one (or more) cards off of my my want list.

2015 Topps Heritage:
New Age Performers insert:
NAP-16.  Aroldis Chapman (Reds)

2001 Fleer Futures:
118.  Dante Bichette (Red Sox)


1995 Upper Deck Collector's Choice:
61.  Tony Gwynn (Padres)


2010 Topps National Chicle:
33.  Evan Longoria (Rays)


2000 Topps Gold Label:
52. (Class 1) Jim Edmonds (Cardinals)


1998 Upper Deck Retro:
76.  Jose Guillen (Pirates)


1998 Sports Illustrated:
4x6 Great Shots Mini Poster:
19.  Harmon Killebrew (Twins)



If you want the stack, remember - all you need to do is offer up any one card from my want list.  



Want the card(s) in the stack?  Act fast - tell me which card you will send me off my want list in the comments below!  You must leave a comment on the trade stack post in order to claim the card - no more claims via email!  If no one claims this card within a reasonable amount of time (a few hours up to a few days, depending) - I'll add another card to the stack and the process will start again!

1999 Pacific: Diamond Dynagon Insert Shows Up

Here we are, pack #23 in the box and we still aren't quite two-thirds of the way through the box.  For someone who is ripping one pack per day, this is a box that'll last for over a month...  You can't say that about most boxes of baseball cards from the 2010s.

Pack 23:
81.  Brant Brown
120.  Brett Tomko

Been awhile since I pulled a Reds' card.  Still no sign of Barry Larkin though, that's disappointing.

144.  Derrick Gibson
169.  Justin Thompson
220. Trenidad Hubbard
301.  Jorge Posada
355.  Ray Lankford
386.  Robb Nen
429.  Ivan Rodriguez

Head shot card.

Diamond Dynagon:  5.  Ben Grieve

Woah, an insert card!  Not many of those in the set...this is the second such Diamond Dynagon card that we've found through the first 23 packs.  That's a bit off the expected pace since they are seeded 4:36 packs.  Truth be told, I'd rather get one more of the rarer inserts...or even another base card I need over the extra Diamond Dynagon card.  There's nothing wrong with the card per se, it simply doesn't interest me all that much is all.

1999 Pacific: What Makes for a Good Pack of Baseball Cards?

There's something fun, and old school, about opening up pack after pack of cards without expecting autographs, relics, parallels, or even inserts...  If that sort of thing sounds interesting to you, I'd recommend you pick up a box of 1999 Pacific for yourself - more base cards than the eye can see (and at 36 packs, it's a hefty box to open...and sort)!  We've made it through 21 packs so far, here's the 22nd.

Pack 22:
37.  Marty Malloy

Lots of rookies in the set - and many of them get a head shot variation.  

79.  Manny Alexander
123.  Sandy Alomar, Jr.
204.  Jeremy Giambi
213.  Larry Sutton
305.  Bernie Williams

It seems like each pack has one or two recognizable stars and then a whole lot of has beens and never was.  Still, with solid (though mostly unspectacular) photography, packs are a quick, fun rip.

338.  Francisco Cordova
341.  Jason Kendall
360.  Donovan Osborne
440.  Tom Evans

Solid, but unspectacular is probably a good way to describe the majority of the 1999 Pacific packs.  Still, with just enough inserts in the box, this is a fun rip (at least so far).

Barry Larkin Collection 553: 1995 Topps Stadium Club - #24 - Virtual Reality

Barry Larkin
Year:  1995
Brand:  Topps Stadium Club
Insert set:  Virtual Reality
Card number:  24

The Virtual Reality cards made up a partial parallel set in the 1995 Stadium Club set.  Each Virtual Reality card has computer generated statistics which were meant to show what might have happened had the 1994 MLB season not been cancelled due to the strike.  The front of the card is the same as Larkin's regular base card (other than the Virtual Reality stamping).  The back of the card has the modified statistics (and a new card number) but otherwise that remains the same as well.

Looking back at the set, I'm not sure how I feel about partial parallels.  I think that it worked fine for the 1995 Stadium Club set (given the "weirdness" of the strike the year before) but I don't think I want to see any partial parallel sets in modern card releases.  The OCD set collector in me actually cringes a little bit thinking about the chaos that might unleash.

1999 Pacific: A Fun (?) Jog Down Memory Lane

Another day, another pack of 1999 Pacific.  Today's pack features a few players that should give you definite flashbacks of the late 90s if you were a baseball card collector back then.

Pack 21:
25.  Devon White
40.  Alex Rodriguez

A-Rod as a Mariner seems less annoying to me than A-Rod as a Yankee.  To be fair to A-Rod, I did kind of like his announcing abilities in last years (I think?) playoffs.

57.  Rafael Palmeiro

Headshot variation.

82.  Mark Clark
210.  Dean Palmer
Palmer is one of those guys who I seemed to pull a lot of cards of despite him not ever really doing all that much to warrant having so many cards.
248.  Matt Lawton
326.  Doug Glanville
415.  Quinton McCracken
Another late 90s name that brought back memories for me.  Pulling Rays has never been an ideal thing in packs...and McCracken is the perfect Ray in that nobody knows who he is and nobody really knows why he is in the pack.
421.  Will Clark
449.  Shannon Stewart

Well, that does it for that pack.  A fun jog down memory lane...or at least, it was a jog.  I don't think there is any such thing as a "fun jog" now that I think about it.  #runningsucks  #itriedtorunthissummer

1999 Pacific: When Does Spring Training Start?

It's hard to believe that we are nearing the end of September already.  Before you know it, spring training will be here.  Oh, too soon?

Well, speaking of baseball, I'm still working my way through my old school box of 1999 Pacific.  This is the 20th pack out of the box.

Pack 20:
12. Chipper Jones

The head shot variation of the pack shows up immediately.

69.  Darren Lewis
121.  Pat Watkins

Watkins was the Reds' top draft pick in 1993.  He never really did all that much for the team, however, which makes him a "bust" to Reds' fans.

211.  Jose Rosado
247.  Denny Hocking
263.  Vladimir Guerrero

Nice, albeit standard, photo of Vlad.

321.  Alex Arias
417.  Bryan Rekar
423.  Juan Gonzalez
439.  Carlos Delgado

Another pack down, I'm still making some solid progress toward completing the set.  Time will tell how close, exactly, I get to the finished set.

1999 Pacific: I Was Hoping for One of Those Die-Cuts (and I Got It)!

As I have mentioned previously, I started ripping my box of 1999 Pacific back in July...but with 36 packs in the box (and not a lot of inserts), my attention ended up drifting away to current releases at the time (such as Allen & Ginter) and I kind of forgot about the second half of the Pacific box (especially since each pack opened meant I needed to write a blog post).

Well, no fear for those that wanted me to keep going - I'm back and ready to rip the 19th pack out of the box.

Pack 19:

73.  Bret Saberhagen
105.  Mike Sirotka
110.  Bret Boone

I actually have enjoyed listening to Boone's brother Aaron on the ESPN baseball telecasts.  He is able to offer some nice insights and information to the game (especially when he's not forced to talk specifically about either the Dodgers or Yankees).

186.  Jeff Bagwell
190. Carl Everett
245.  Ron Coomer
293.  Hideki Irabu

One of the coolest "head shot" variations I've seen - look at that sky in the background.  This is an awesome looking card!

328.  Mark Leiter
375.  Greg Vaughn
Gold Crown Die-Cuts:  34.  Mark McGwire

The Gold Crown Die-Cuts are seeded 1:37 packs so there wasn't a 100% guarantee that we'd pull one in our box.  Amazingly, the Gold Crown set contains 36 cards...which means you'd need to rip a LOT of wax in order to complete the entire set (think cases of the product).  That's crazy.  I'm happy to simply have one of the die-cut cards, even if it is a freakin' Cardinal.

That does it for today's pack - and it was definitely one of the best packs out of the box.  I guess good things come to those who wait!

Delivery Time! Collating Cards Sends an Awesome Johnny Bench!

I recently completed a simple little swap with Steve from Collating Cards.  Steve wanted some of my Felix Hernandez cards that I had available for trade - and in return?  He sent me this nifty Johnny Bench image variation card.

That's a great looking action shot (and notice the Athletics' cap flying to the ground during the play).  Cool stuff for sure.

Thanks for the PWE Steve.  And, if anyone else would like to trade, be sure to check out my want list and make an offer!

1999 Pacific: Hoping for a Solid Monday.

Here we are at the beginning of another work week.  Hopefully this pack of 1999 Pacific will get us going on the right foot.

Pack 18:
50.  Eric Davis
112.  Pete Harnishch

It's a Red, but not the Larkin that I keep hoping to find.  Still plenty of packs to go though, no panic yet.

134.  Manny Ramirez
172.  John Cangelosi
197.  Shane Reynolds
218.  Mark Grudzielanek
286.  Mike Piazza

When I pulled this card, I wasn't sure if this was the head shot variation or not.  It's not as clear as most of the other variation cards have been.  However, I already pulled the "regular" version of Piazza's base card in an earlier pack...so I can say with authority:  Yes, this is the head shot variation image card.

288.  Masato Yoshii
365.  Ken Caminiti
431.  Lee Stevens

Not a bad pack at all for me.  I always liked Eric Davis, and couple that with another Red and a nice Piazza and I'd say we had a solid pack for a Monday.

Now go out and have a solid Monday everyone.

Trade Stack 83: Who Misses Turn of the Century Fleer?!

Here is how this works:
Every so often (i.e. whenever I feel like it), I will add a card to a "Trade Stack".  Whenever the stack becomes appealing enough to someone, that person needs to comment on the post saying they'd like to claim the stack AND tell me which card they are sending off of my want list.  That's all you have to do - trade me ONE card (or more, of course) card from my want list for the entire stack of cards that I'm offering.  Each time, it will be first come, first serve...so act quickly (unless of course you are a gambler and hope to wait it out until there are 10+ cards in the stack that you want in exchange for a single 2004 UD Vintage card that I am looking for)!

The Trade Stack:
Last update: 9/17/17

Today's addition to the Trade Stack is a card from a 2001 Fleer set...and I have to say, while I don't particularly care for the set itself I definitely miss having Fleer produce baseball cards.  Much like Pacific, I think Fleer added a lot of ingenuity and creativity into the baseball card market.  Most assuredly, not every set was a winner but you couldn't fault Fleer for not trying.  

Remember, you get the entire Trade Stack in exchange for one (or more) cards off of my my want list.

1999 Pacific: I Bichette You Not.

Here's the next pack out of the 1999 Pacific box.

Pack 17:
59.  Arthur Rhodes
97.  Albert Belle
141.  Dante Bichette

Our image variation of the pack.

149.  Mike Lansing
173.  Craig Counsell
174.  Todd Dunwoody
227.  Jeff Shaw
276.  John Franco
363.  Andy Ashby
428.  Mark McLemore

The obvious downside to a set without a lot of inserts is that you are destined to get the occasional pack like this one where the player names don't make for a very interesting bunch of cards.  If I had bought this one pack from a hobby shop, there is no way I wouldn't have been disappointed.  Luckily, I bought a full box...and I'm trying to collect the entire base set so I need all of theses, even the guys like Dunwoody and McLemore, no matter how boring they may be.

Trade Stack 83: Upping the Star Power of the Trade Stack!

Here is how this works:
Every so often (i.e. whenever I feel like it), I will add a card to a "Trade Stack".  Whenever the stack becomes appealing enough to someone, that person needs to comment on the post saying they'd like to claim the stack AND tell me which card they are sending off of my want list.  That's all you have to do - trade me ONE card (or more, of course) card from my want list for the entire stack of cards that I'm offering.  Each time, it will be first come, first serve...so act quickly (unless of course you are a gambler and hope to wait it out until there are 10+ cards in the stack that you want in exchange for a single 2004 UD Vintage card that I am looking for)!

The Trade Stack:
Last update: 9/16/17

The Trade Stack gets some more star power in it with tonight's addition to the pile.  As it turns out, some of my favorite sets are now included in the 83rd Trade Stack including Collector's Choice, Topsp Gold Label, and Fleer Sports Illustrated.  Surely someone will jump in soon and claim the entire pile, right?!

Remember, you get the entire Trade Stack in exchange for one (or more) cards off of my my want list.

1995 Upper Deck Collector's Choice:
61.  Tony Gwynn (Padres)

If you want the stack, remember - all you need to do is offer up any one card from my want list.  



Want the card(s) in the stack?  Act fast - tell me which card you will send me off my want list in the comments below!  You must leave a comment on the trade stack post in order to claim the card - no more claims via email!  If no one claims this card within a reasonable amount of time (a few hours up to a few days, depending) - I'll add another card to the stack and the process will start again!
