He had a deal for 140 picks for $14.75 shipped, which wasn't too bad. I asked him if I could do two of those 140 card lots and he came back with a better offer: 500 cards for $35 shipped. I know of places that I could buy a 500-count box for less than $35, but for 500 cards that I hand-picked for my collection? I'll do that at seven cents a pop.
My main concern was the commons to fill my set needs, like these 92 and 93 Fleer. But with 500 picks, I suddenly could branch out a little bit and pick up from other sets he had listed. Basically, it was a variety of Fleer offerings from 1990-2008.
I'm not completing 1991 Fleer, but I could use some singles from the set. I waffle back and forth on how I feel about 1991 Fleer football. It's not the most exciting of designs, but it actually doesn't look too bad. The single-color gradient background is team color coordinated, which is a plus. Overall, I don't hate it and I don't love it.
Below is 2006 Fleer. All of the cards here are All 2000s team players, except for Cris Carter, who held the honor the previous decade.
Finally, this post will come into focus. Fleer Focus, that is. These are the Fleer Focuses (Fleer Foci?) from 1999, 2000, and 2002.
This was obviously not nearly the full 500 card pick up on ebay, but I don't think many of you care to see all the common base cards from 1992 Fleer, so I just hit the highlights. I've said it before, but I really miss Fleer. They always had some of my favorite designs and put out some great looking cards during their run. I'm glad to add some that I didn't have before.
