But first let us recap...
#5 - 1995 Score
#4 - 1995 Topps Embossed
#3 - 1997 Leaf
Now for the RUNNER-UP...1994 Fleer Extra Bases!!!
The reason? Isn't it obvious?
I love the photography! Ha!
These over size beauties took their place in my heart on an afternoon trip to the entertainment capital of East Tennessee, Pigeon Forge. My dad bought a package for himself, mom and me just wanting to explore the possibilities. Needless to say, the size was what actually won me over.
Measuring at 2 1/2" x 5 1/8", they were by far the biggest cards I'd ever seen. And honestly the photography is not to shabby either. Nice vibrant colors in all the pictures.
If I had to pick a downfall to the set, it's relatively obvious as well...the design. Fleer must have put all its smarts into the measurement of the card and not the layout. They did do a good job of selling the cards size instead of the design, though. You wouldn't want to overpower the sheer size with so gaudy nameplate.
Overall, this set is an A+ for me.
What do you think?
