ALL-STAR LARRY BIRD HONORED

 ALL-STAR LARRY BIRD HONORED
 PROVIDENCE, R.I., Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Twelve-time Celtics All


Star Larry Bird has achieved another milestone; he is the subject of a special three card hologram set developed by Lime Rock Productions, Inc. of Providence, R.I. Billed as Yesterday...Today...Forever and depicting three benchmarks in No. 33's career, this first ever card set shows the electricity of Larry on the court at Indiana State, his patented shooting style at Boston and commemorates his trip to Barcelona this summer.
 Known for his reserved, off-court style, Larry Bird has never permitted anyone to produce this type of trading card set or hologram cards before. "We consider ourselves very fortunate to have been given this kind of opportunity," said Paul Carroll, Lime Rock's president. "We treated this project like a sacred trust between Larry, the fans and ourselves, Larry's fans are used to the very best. Everyone at Lime Rock has worked to produce a hologram card set that will come to be known as the first of its kind ever produced," Carroll said. "The cards and packaging are the most unique and of the highest quality in the trading card market today," he concluded. "We are excited that the set has gotten the attention of retailers and collectors and is now available across the country."
 As most people know by now, card collecting has grown into a billion dollar international industry, with most collections made up of regular printed cardboard cards. A hybrid extension of card collecting and considered the No. 1 growth and investment area for trading cards in the '90s, is hologram cards. Lime Rock guarantees the limited production of the hologram set by including a numbered certificate of authenticity that reveals the exact production figures from each step of the manufacturing process. Carroll pointed out "Lime Rock is thrilled to have Larry Bird as the first member of its All-Star Hologram team."
