Description

1990 Fleer is a 660 card set. Cards are ordered alphabetically by player within each team. The teams are in order based on their respective performance during the prior year. Subsets include Decade Greats (621-630), Superstar Combinations (631-639), Rookie Prospects (640-653) and checklists (654-660). The card fronts show either an action photo or posed photo of a player. The cards are printed in white card stock, with a non-glossy finish and have a white border. The photo is framed with a color border, the color, more or less, coordinated with the team colors. The card reverse is vertically oriented with the player name, personal statistics and career stats by year. There is a "Vital Signs" graphic at the bottom of the card giving key career stats.

Key rookie cards include: Moises Alou, Juan Gonzalez, David Justice, Sammy Sosa and Larry Walker.

Canadian Version

On cards distributed in Canada, the words "FLEER LTD./LTEE PTD. IN CANADA" are printed in small type on the backs. Unlike O-Pee-Chee and Leaf sets of the era, all Fleer Canadian cards are printed exclusively in English. Although these Canadian cards were undoubtedly produced in much lesser quantities compared to the U.S. issue, the fact that the American and Canadian versions are so similar has kept the demand down over the years. The Canadian version was distributed only in boxes that contained 48 packs with 10 cards in each pack. It's unknown if Canadian factory sets were produced.

Distribution

Wax: 36 packs per box, 15 cards and one team logo sticker per pack. 20 boxes per case.
