Description

1997 Fleer was a 761-card set with cards 1-500 in Series One and cards 501-761 in Series Two. Series One (which was not marketed as "Series One") was issued in April, 1997. In lieu of an "Update" set, Fleer instead published a second series which served as the de facto 1997 Fleer Update set.

As with the previous year's set, the cards were borderless and printed with a matte-finish and gold foil stamping. Unlike the previous year's product, the matte finish used wasn't as "rough" and made sorting cards easier. It is believed that the last 11 cards in Series 2 (751-761) were late additions to the set and short-printed. The set featured an Encore subset (cards 696-720) and Checklists (cards 491-500/721-750/761)

For the first time since 1993, Fleer did not include an insert in every pack. However, this era of the late-1990s was the height of the "Insert Mania" craze that began earlier in the decade and Fleer continued to drive the trend and accommodated demand by producing 14 insert sets plus a parallel set and autograph redemption.

This was also the final year for "Fleer" baseball, as the company renamed their flagship product to Fleer Tradition beginning in 1998.

Series Two featured one of only two "true" rookie cards of David Ortiz and his card referred to him as "David Arias" (his full given name is David Américo Ortiz Arias)

This 28-card set highlighted the top player from each Major League team. Cards were die-cut to contour an up-close picture of the featured player's face. Initially, Fleer printed this insert featuring the bill of the player's cap extended outwards as part of the die-cut contouring. However, due to quality control issues (i.e., ease of this portion of the card getting damaged due to it "sticking out"), Fleer reprinted this insert set without the player's cap bill protruding outwards. Both variations of this insert - cap bill and no cap bill - exist but it unknown how many of each variation exists; however, much fewer quantities of the cap bill variation exist.

Foreshadowing future "throwback" sets by Fleer (and others), this 15-card set featured some of the top players in the game on a card design that resembled the 1933 Goudey (R-319) set. Like the originals, each card measured 2 3/8" X 2 7/8".

Soaring Stars

This 12-card set highlighted the top stars in the game on a "star" foil background and had 3 variations, meaning there were 3 total versions for each player:

  • Version 1: "Star" foil variation #1: Midnight blue background with a "star" foil finish finish.

  • Version 2: "Star" foil variation #2: Midnight blue background with a different "star" foil finish finish than Version 1 - is similar to the foil finish on 1997 E-X2000 Essential Credentials.

  • Version 3: "Glowing" foil: Holographic, midnight blue background with no stars. Towards the end of the production run, Fleer ran out of the "starry" foil used on the regular Soaring Stars, and had to switch to a "glowing" (holographic foil). It is believed that 10%-20% of the total production run was printed on this "glowing" foil.

Autographs

Andruw Jones 1997 Circa Autograph

Emerald-Redemption.jpg?id=17cce90e-ab58-4e89-ae5c-190a7194a2e2&size=original&side=front&.jpg Emerald-Redemption.jpg?id=17cce90e-ab58-4e89-ae5c-190a7194a2e2&size=original&side=back&.jpg

Fleer had Andruw Jones autograph 200 copies of his 1997 Circa base card. In order to acquire the card, one had to collect a set of redemption cards that were seeded into Series Two packs at the rate of 1:4/packs. The redemption cards were identical to those inserted into '97 Circa packs as part of that product's Emerald Autograph program and incorrectly state "6 CARD AUTOGRAPH SET;" however, only Jones was available through this offer. (Jones was not part of Circa's Emerald Autograph program.)

The backs of each redemption card are sequentially-numbered "X of 10." Collectors that found all ten cards could then redeem them for the Andruw Jones autograph -- however, card #7 was extremely short-printed.
