Like most suitcase sized packages I get from Wes, a portion will likely contain cards. The most recent priority mail box contained two large boxes of cards. So many cards that I've had to break it up in two posts. I probably should just have a companion blog based on items JBF sent my way. Today on "Bob Walk to my Mail Box and See What JBF Sent Today." I'm still working on the name....
Pacific also offered a lot of variety. Lots of offshoot Pacific sets exist to varying degrees of craziness. I always joke that some of the design meetings were cocaine filled parties which produced crazy insert cards. You name the insert gimmick and Pacific surely did it. The funny thing is these cards are highly desirable now to player collectors.
So I'm guessing the collectors that wax poetic about Pacific are likely in my same age group.
I sporadically showcase Pacific cards throughout this post. Did I do this to keep you reading or am I just lazy in terms of how I scanned the cards. I'll never tell.....
You can obviously see some of the cocaine coming through even in the splinter cell base sets.
The Merced is just a fantastic photo.
Matt Morris was a short stay Bucco who was absolutely horrendous during that time. Needless to say he doesn't have much in the way of cards as a Bucco.
Craig Wilson looks like he has a perm.
Jeff Reboulet looks like a 70's porn star.
As usual Wes I'm amazed that you can find so many Pirate cards on such a frequent basis. The bombardment so far has been fun.
Thanks for reading.
