The 'Legends of Baseball' series is the first set I am releasing that comes on individual cards. The set features the all time best players ever from the 1870's to about 2010. The cards used for LOB are the same quality cards as those used in such games as 'Magic: The Gathering' They are on flexible heavy card stock and come with rounded corners. Each card is printed in full color on front and back.
This offering is for the cards only. If you already have any previous version of Pine Tar, you don't need the latest version of the game. You can simply order just this card set. If you need the boxed game, you may as well get the offering that comes with the game plus cards. Legends introduces an M grade pitcher, if your using an older pitching table from the game, prior to 2017, simply use the "A" grade for Nolan Ryan in place of the M grade.
This set includes 128 individual cards. Cards are made with a 12 point 305gsm black-core matt card stock. This provides excellent color quality, sheen, and snap back. Cards are poker sized (2.5 x 3.5")
