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:
http://players.bigleaguers.com/Jose_Hernandez.html is now a dead link: "Firefox can't find the server at players.bigleaguers.com."
http://www.cubs.com is still the Cubs site, though it now points to the more ungainly http://chicago.cubs.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=chc
At least they weren't links to Geocities or Angelfire sites.
