1988 Fleer wax box

Description

1988 Fleer consists of 660 cards. Card fronts feature a distinctive white background with red and blue diagonal stripes across the card. As in years past cards are organized numerically by teams and team order is based upon the previous season's record. Subsets include Super Star Specials (622-640), Rookies (641-653), and checklists (654-660).

Rookie Cards in this set include Jay Bell, Ellis Burks, Ken Caminiti, Ron Gant, Tom Glavine, Mark Grace, Edgar Martinez, Jack McDowell and Matt Williams.

Compared to 1987 Fleer, production was dramatically increased; thereby depressing the long-run value of this set.

Sticker Set

In 1988 Fleer produced a set of "sticker" cards that featured a trophy with the team logo or two team logos with red and white stickers with the team names. These cards were not numbered. They featured a different baseball stadium on the back of each card.

Distribution

Parallels

Glossy

For the second consecutive year, Fleer produced a Glossy set. Similar to Topps Tiffany, Fleer Glossy is a 660 card parallel to the regular Fleer issue. The cards (along with the 12-card World Series insert set) were issued as a full set in a tin box distributed exclusively through hobby dealers. Since many dealers had problems selling their 1987 sets, production was reduced for the 1988 issues. It is believed that between 40,000 and 60,000 sets were produced.

Box Bottoms

These 16 cards (C1 to C16) were printed on the bottom of the wax boxes. There are four different "panels" with four cards on each panel. The value of the panel uncut is slightly greater, perhaps by 25 percent greater, than the value of the individual cards cut up carefully.
