2000 Pacific Prism

#119 J. D. Drew (Cardinals)

   This is the base version. The camera flash reflects all the colors in the holographic like background.

#54 Damon Easley (Tigers) Purple 74/99

   Again the flash does some strange things with the purple background. The serial numbering is small and black just under the "2B"

# 123 Fernando Tatis (Cardinals)

   Base version again.

#126 Tony Gwynn (Padres) Rapture Silver

     Here is the Rapture Silver version. Same silver like color with a different grain.

#132 Freddy Garcia (Mariners)

    Back to base version.

A couple of the backs.

     All the backs look the same.

Total Cards:
Teams Represented: 4
Rookie Cards:
Sub Sets:
2 (Easley Purple /99 and Gwynn Silver)
Keepers for Me:
 2 (Easly, Gwynn)

Front Design: 8 out of 10 Good pictures, nice design, awesome colorful holographic like backgrounds,  no team logo.
Back Design:
 7 out of 10 Nice design, team logo,  fair player info, good layout, one year stats.
Player Selection: 7 out of 10 Good, 1 HOFer.

FINAL OVERALL RATING: Double down the line. I really like these cards and love the backgrounds. Anybody who likes chasing rainbows will have a field day with this set as there are many different colors and background variations of each card.

   I am going to find a player to chase a rainbow but it wont be a superstar as they can be costly. Stay tuned to The Baseball Card Buffet for more of these and a chance to get some yourself in the near future.

Thanks for Reading!
