MLBP AND PACIFIC REACH COURT AGREEMENT ON TRADING CARDS
Published May 22, 1998
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).
