Chan Ho Park, 1997 Pinnacle Passport to the Majors


Name: Chan Ho Park
Team: Los Angeles Dodgers
Positions: Pitcher, standing in line at Customs
Value of card: Whatever bogus silver leaf sells for these days
Key 1996 stat: Six fake stamps
Three good things and three bad things about this foldout card:
Good: Promotes a sense of multiculturalism in the game.
Bad: Does not work as an actual passport
Good: Attempts to present the player in a more personable way.
Bad: Does not mention Park's Flying Squirrel Kick skills
Good: Having card open like a book provides a new dimension to card collecting.
Bad: Having Park's signature allowed forgers to take over his Columbia House CD account, resulting in mass overcharges for albums from Slayer, Yanni and Garth Brooks.
