1984 Fleer Baseball

By Patrick Mondout

This set was a major step forward for Fleer. More on this set in the days to come (6/30/2005).

 

Cool, dude!

Among the less serious cards in the '84 Fleer set are the Glenn Hubbard with boa constrictor, Larry McWilliams holding up his '81 Fleer card, and Jay Johnstone advertising his apparent beverage of choice. They may seem tame today, but they raised eyebrows among some experienced collectors at the time and were even mentioned in the Oct 15, 1984 Time magazine.

 

This is a nice looking set with no wacky design elements. However, when I flip through a complete set of these cards, something is missing - the cards are too similar. White and blue, white and blue. Everything - even the backs - is white and blue. I know others will disagree, but I believe this set could stand some more color. I took some contemporary photos from former Fleer photographer Lou Sauritch that we own and made some faux '84 Fleer cards to show you what I mean. You can view them here.

A checklist for all 660 cards is available here.
