You've got card

One of the Cubs I got from Gooch was from a site I never saw before - 1998 Pacific Online. The card is eleven years old - back from when the internet was new, and I guess card companies like Pacific were figuring out to incorporate the "Information Superhighway" into the product. There are two URLs on top, where fans could type them in on their AOL or Netscape: is now a dead link: "Firefox can't find the server at" is still the Cubs site, though it now points to the more ungainly
At least they weren't links to Geocities or Angelfire sites.


  1. 1998 Reaction: Wow! A baseball card with an internet address. How innovative and fresh! I shall purchase more packs of Pacific.

    2009 Reaction: Why the heck is there a web address on my baseball card? It's a baseball card not a business card. Also, isn't Pacific out of business?
