While the Paramount brand was never produced due to Pacific's loss of the licensing early in 2001 there were still 3 sample cards produced and distributed to the media and dealers according to the SCD. They were Barry Bonds, Vladmir Guerrero and Greg Maddux. Are there others unlisted besides Thomas?
