Description

1989 Fleer consists of 660 cards. Card fronts feature a distinctive gray border background with white and yellow trim. Cards are again organized alphabetically within teams and teams ordered by previous season record. The last 33 cards in the set consist of SuperStar Specials (628-639), Major League Prospects (640-653), and checklists (654-660). Rookie Cards in this set include Craig Biggio, Ken Griffey Jr., Randy Johnson, Gary Sheffield, and John Smoltz.

The '89 Fleer set is known for the sheer amount of errors and variations. Approximately half of the California Angels players have white rather than yellow halos. Certain Oakland A's player cards have red instead of green lines for front photo borders. Checklist cards are available either with or without positions listed for each player.

Randy Johnson Variations

An interesting variation was discovered in late 1999 by Beckett Grading Services on the Randy Johnson RC (card #381). It seems the most common version features a crudely-blacked out image of an outfield billboard. A scarcer version clearly reveals the words "Marlboro" on the billboard.

Billy Ripken Errors

One of the Hobby's most notorious errors hails from this product. Card #616, Billy Ripken, was originally published with the words "FUCK FACE" clearly written on the knob of the bat. Needless to say, this caused quite a stir in 1989 and the card was quickly reprinted. Because of this, several different variations were printed with the final solution (and the most common version of this card) being a black box covering the bat knob. The first variation is still actively sought after in the hobby and the other versions are still sought after by collectors seeking a "master" set.

The website BillRipken.com has assembled a gallery of all the known variations.

For the third and final year, Fleer produced a Glossy "Tin" set. These cards are identical to the regular Fleer cards except for the glossy sheen on the front. As many dealers did not order this product, this set is considerably scarcer than the regular 1989 Fleer set and the preceding years of Glossy parallels. Unlike the previous two seasons, the update set was not issued in Glossy form. It is estimated that Fleer made approximately 30,000 of these sets.

The Ken Griffey, Jr. card from this set is regarded as one of the most important early parallels in hobby history and is more often than not found with poor centering.

As usual, each pack of 1989 Fleer Baseball contained one team logo sticker. Each team has two designs: "Logo w/Bats & Bunting" and "Quad Logos." The Quad Logos stickers pair-up four teams with four nickel-sized mini team logos.

The reverse of each sticker features team histories.
