Description

1998 Aurora (by Pacific Trading Cards) is a 200-card set released in the Spring of 1998. Along with 1998 Paramount, Aurora was one of Pacific's first English-only baseball card products, and therefore was not licensed by MLB Properties. (Pacific did have an MLBP license, but only to produce cards in Spanish.) Despite the lack of a license, Pacific did not bother to airbrush any MLB logos or trademarks.

Distribution

24 packs, plus one "Cel-Cube" per box; six cards per pack. (MSRP: $2.99)
