Card #276: 1998 Pacific Crown Collection Latinos of the Major Leagues #9
SET: Crown Collection
INSERT: Latinos of the Major Leagues
TEAM: Cleveland Indians
Pacific was well-known for its focus on Latino players. Besides having lesser-known Latinos show up in their base sets, they also did a number of inserts focusing on Latino stars. 1997 was a big year for Sandy Alomar Jr. so he was showing up in a number of sets and inserts. And he was a big Latino star, so it was only natural for Pacific to include him in its insert set dedicated to Latino star players. I picked this card up in a lot that also gave me the Omar Vizquel and the Pedro Martinez. I do like the design with the team logo and the player's home country flag in the background. This was kind of a nice-looking insert set.
