    Do 1998 Pacific Online Winners Exist for All Players?

    Beckett shows these 2 listings from the 1998 Pacific Online Set:
    1998 Pacific Online Winners #195 Barry Larkin
    1998 Pacific Online Winners #209 Barry Larkin TC

    It looks like several of the players from this set actually have values (low ones at that) listed for these winner cards. However, many of the players (including Larkin) just have a N/A listed. I have never seen these cards, nor have any of the other Larkin collectors I know. Does anyone know what the deal is with these - Do they exist for all players? Any info and Pics if you have them would be much appreciated.

    Pretty sure you were supposed to go to a website and type in the code on the back of each Pacific Online Web Cards. If the code was a winner, you got a special upgraded "winner" card. Remember the internet was still young, this wasn't a highly anticipated set and pacific was within a year of going out of buisness.

    Never ever seen a Mark Grace. I have a saved image of a Griffey.

    There are "White Whales" in this hobby, and then there are "Bigfoots." I tend to think of a Grace Pacific Online Winner as a "Bigfoot." White Whales are worth the time to chase, Bigfoots aren't - but if you are the one to discover one, you'll be a legend.

    Good to know - I appreciate the info guys. I wonder if all of the cards were even made if it was some type of a redemption thing as you said. Maybe some cards just don't even exist. I guess I will just hope to come across one someday, but not worry too much about it. Thanks again!

    This topic comes up now and then. I remembered some old threads on other boards and went back to them. Of all the threads that I looked at, these were the only confirmed Online Winners known to exist:

    Juan Gonzalez Team Checklist
    Ken Griffey Jr.
    Wade Boggs
    Barry Bonds
    Andy Stankiewicz (a common!)



    Most people who posted to these threads don't believe every player exists (was stamped) and treat these as 1/1's. But who really knows the full story?

    Someone on here has a Clemens as well, but yeah, player list is going to be next to impossible. I've never seen a Clark.

    I bought a Pacific set a a garage sale one day from a guy, and I said to the girl, "Is this a full set?" and he said "I don't know". This was the first time I had ever been in this card shop. So I bought it and took it home and when I opened it, it was a full set of Online Winners! That's the best thing I ever got at a swap meet!

    Anything ever come out about that? Anyone ever dig up any info on those "buybacks" or are you just jabbing the story? Sometimes I go a few days between board reads

    I think he is just jabbing at the story. No one knows for sure about the authenticity of them. I own 2 of them and if they are fakes, they are very good ones. I did find out that the set was intended to be produced before UD lost their license, so it makes sense that they could exist and could have been backdoored, Past that, who knows

    I'm surprised that none of these online winners started popping up en masse from all those Pacific banko cards that got sold off. Like all those goofy football proofs that are constantly on ebay.
