2001 Pacific Ornaments #16 Pat Burrell

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . .

Nothing quite captures the magic and joy of Christmas than a festive Pat Burrell Christmas wreath.

Pacific Trading Cards featured some of the most creative insert sets of the late '90s and early '00s. Even though some of their products were difficult on the eyes, the company always attempted to give the collector something different. Pacific first included an Ornaments insert set within packs of its 2000 set, and I'll feature the Scott Rolen card from this set as we get closer to the happiest day of the year.

In late 2000, Pacific again included Ornament inserts within select packs of its 2001 flagship set. Pat Burrell is the lone Phillie featured in that year's 24-card set. Pacific went so far as to include a perforated hole at the top of the card, perfect for inserting a hook and hanging on the tree.
