Cramer Sports Productions later became Pacific, one of the major card makers of the late 80s and 90s.  The company was founded by Michael Cramer, who owned a card store in Edmonds, Washington.  It took Cramer several years to print the entire set. The last 4 cards were printed on the boxes used to distribute the wax packs, and are scarce.

Although these were mass-produced cards, the numbers issued are miniscule compared with the trillions of cards spewed out by Topps, Donruss, Fleer, and others during that era.  Later, in 1988-90, Cramer created a color series of “Pacific Legends”  which had a much greater print run, and is therefore less collectible.

It is getting more difficult to find a complete set of these, as collectors begin to realize that they are more valuable than almost anything else produced in the early 80s.  They are still available at reasonable prices, making them a bargain for collectors of baseball’s golden age.

About card hog

I've been collecting baseball cards since 1965, when I would chew on them instead of the horrible bubble gum inside. All of these cards are from my private collection.
