Description

1998 Paramount is a 250-card set released by Pacific in the early May 1998. This product was Pacific's first English language-only baseball card set and as such, is licensed only by the MLBPA. At the time, Pacific's license with MLB Properties only allowed them to produce cards in Spanish. Despite the lack of league licensing, Pacific didn't bother to airbrush or otherwise conceal any team logos.

Distribution

Hobby: 36 packs per box, six cards per pack (MSRP: $1.49).

Inaugural

Inaugural is a 50-card partial-parallel distributed to attendees of the SportsFest '98 card show in Philadelphia. To receive one (and only one) Inaugural card, collectors had to purchase and open an entire 36-pack box of 1998 Paramount at Pacific's SportsFest '98 corporate booth. Collector's could then take one (and only one) card from each of the 36 packs they just opened and have them embossed with a special "SportsFest '98" logo.

Each Inaugural card has the same "SportsFest '98" embossed logo, but in gold foil and are serial-numbered to 20.
