Legend is an obsolete creature type.

Only one creature of the same name, with this creature type, could be in play at the same time. For a while, they were even on the restricted list, meaning there could be only one creature of the same name in each deck.[1]

Legend was replaced by the supertype legendary in Champions of Kamigawa.[2]
