Showing Off My Other Nomar 1/1’s

I figured since yesterday I posted my first true Nomar 1/1, I might as well show off the other 2 cards I was talking about. So here are they are;

This is a Nomar Garciaparra film cell used to make a card by Pacific trading cards. This is a really cool item and is the only one of it’s kind, making it a 1/1. The middle part you see of Nomar is a transparent picture of Nomar, encased in a plastic holder, so as not to scratch the film so they could make the card of Nomar. The size of this film cell is about 1/3 the size of a normal baseball card too, slightly bigger then a tobacco card, to put it in perspective.

Next up is a Proof card of Nomar from Fleer Authentix. These were made and used as a test to see what the cards would turn out like, and the companies would  look at these proof cards and see if they needed to make any changes to the final product before it was released to the public. Since they only made one proof per card, these too are technically  a 1/1. These proof cards are slightly bigger then the average card, the bottom and top are extended slighty, and of course the left side still has the original printings on it.

So there you have it, I know own three truly original 1/1′ s of Nomar Garciaparra.

  1. Cool, thanks for the post! That film cell is nice.

  2. Awesome, those are both pretty cool! How did you acquire those, if you don’t mind me asking?

  3. both came off ebay…the Fleer authentix was a BIN of like $6.00 shipped so that was good

    the Pacific film cell was listed on ebay after pacific officially went out of business and listed everything they had left in their vault (ie photos, printing plates, contracts, documents etc.) and I snatched up the Nomar.

    • Nice, I have to look for something like that for my PCs. Thanks for the info!
