  • MLBP AND PACIFIC REACH COURT AGREEMENT ON TRADING CARDS

              MLBP and Pacific Trading Cards have reached agreement
         on their trading card dispute.  MLBP appealed the lower
         court ruling of U.S. District Judge John Martin, who ruled
         earlier this month that Pacific Trading Cards could continue
         to distribute cards featuring MLB players in uniform despite
         the objection of MLB owners.  Pacific has a licensing deal
         with the MLBPA, but not MLBP.  In Appeals Court on Tuesday,
         MLBP and Pacific reached accord on a one-year deal for '98
         that will allow Pacific to produce a line of English
         language cards featuring players in uniform.  As part of the
         deal, Pacific will pay MLBP royalties on all products sold
         in '98 and a penalty on the sale of cards produced prior to
         settlement.  Pacific will also modify the existing products
         to show that they are now licensed by MLBP (MLBP).
