1995 Pacific Harvey Riebe is a single card set produced by Pacific to honor the World War II veteran Harvey "Hank" Riebe. Originally Riebe made the major leagues as a catcher for the Detroit Tigers at 21 years old in August of 1942. After a promising start to his career, he was drafted and sent to war. During the war, he received two Purple Hearts for wounds sustained in combat. As a baseball player, his career was over just as it was beginning. He would return to the major leagues but was never the player he could have bloomed into.
