CotG: Baseball Legends Richie Ashburn

Finally the Mets show some life in their bats with a couple of home runs for the win.

For this CotG, I have two packs of Baseball Legends made by Pacific in 1988. I never seen these packs before so I thought I give it a shot.


At first glance, the cards look bland and boring. Rather than action shots they opted for all posed shots. Although the packs have an interesting mix of players the best being Ted Williams.


There were plenty of Yankees cards, the best being Phil Rizzuto but no cards of players pictured as a Met. But 3 cards had players that retired as a Met, Ralph Terry, Gene Woodling, and Richie Ashburn, two of them being part of 1962 Mets. With a little research, Richie Ashburn was the Mets first All- star, so despite his connections with the Phillies, his card is the CotG.
