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).
