Backyard Baseball trading cards

Post by Nelson340 on Wed Nov 09, 2011 3:56 pm

Although my only copy of this game came in a box of Golden Grahams, I have noticed on the autorun screen what looks like something saying the game came with free trading cards of the Backyard Kids. Does anyone have pictures of these?

Humongous did this a lot with their older games. Though, I'm kinda wondering if they're talking about the cards included inside the game rather than physical cards. I don't know if we'll get an answer though, given how poorly it sold in its first year.

They sure did come with cards! A little shorter than your average baseball card, but still quite cool! The back has their attributes with the little baseballs for each category, a small write up, and some vital stats. The fronts are just big portraits of each player. I have copies of Annie Frazier, Maria Luna, Luanne Lui, and Reese Worthington. I'm trying to find more if I can!

Also, since they were new to some people - did you guys know that Pacific made baseball cards of the MLB players and NFL players for BB2000, BF2000, and BB2001? Here are a few: http://www.checkoutmycards.com/Cards,=Backyard+pacific

I had a few but I think I sold/lost them all over time.

Cards Scanned!

Post by SpastikMooss on Thu Jan 12, 2012 1:11 pm

I have one from Backyard Football, one from Backyard Baseball 2001, and 4 from the original Backyard Baseball (before the pros got involved). I know there are more from the original game and I'm sure my brother has Pablo Sanchez - it's just buried at my parent's house somewhere. Next time I'm home I'll try to find his rookie card Putt: Happy Face

Anyway, scans. They're huge, so right click to see all 6 cards in each image.

I see that the pitching stat used to never exist and fielding was split into throwing and catching.

Funny, I specifically remember that I got Baseball 2001 back when it first came out, but I never got any trading cards in the box! Were those from some sort of promotional thing, or did I just get a later re-issue?

I think you got a later reissue. I know the MLB player ones (Sosa and Nomar) came with the game itself. I assume Annie did too but I'm not sure!

And Nelson, yeah, the stats shown used to be a little different. Luanne was still an awesome pitcher though - best pitcher in the game!

These are very interesting. I thought I'd never see these in my life. Thanks for posting them!

No problem! I'm hoping to find more. I'm on a bunch of card sites too and I mentioned the game and someone else remembered the cards!

I found some online!

Hey everyone,

I too remember these cards. I know for a fact I had some but they have since been lost. After reading everyone's posts on here, I did a little search and found only 1 listing on eBay. What do you think?

Fantastic price for what it is. If you don't buy it I will, as I only have 4 of those 8! And Pablo Sanchez is one of my missing cards!

(Also your username is awesome!)

Why thank you! Just for that, I am gonna let you go for the cards as my inspired search yielded a Pablo Sanchez! I also found Mikey and Reese. I'm totally content with that so go get your Pablo!
