Description

1999 Flair Showcase is a 432-card set released by Fleer. Like with previous Flair Showcase sets, each of the 144 players in the set were featured on different levels/"Rows", which each Row featuring a unique front design:

  • Row 3: "Power" design
  • Row 2: "Passion" design
  • Row 1: "Showcase" design

The Row 3 cards were easiest to find, while the Row 1 cards were the toughest.

Each "Row" was then subdivided into

  • Showpiece: Black and white background, portrait picture, yellow banner
  • Showtime: Team-colored background, full-body picture, grey banner
  • Showdown: Team-colored wave background, full-body picture, silver banner

Each of the 144 players in the set had one card in each of the three rows, with a specifically assigned cardback design per Row, meaning each player had 3 base cards total. The "Seat" number on the back represented the card number in the set.

Parallels

All 432 base cards (144 players from all three "Rows") are available in a Legacy or Masterpiece parallel.

Legacy Collection

Legacy Collection parallels are again recognizable for the use of a distinctive and reflective-blue foil on the player's nameplate, Flair Showcase logo, "Legacy Collection" logo on the front and the serial-number stamp on the back. However, the player photos, Row design, and holographic finish were the same as the base versions. All Legacy Collections were serial-numbered to 99 copies. Note that Row 3 and Row 2 Legacy Collections were stamped on the back of the card while the Row 1 Legacy Collections were stamped on the front.

Masterpiece

Masterpiece parallels are again recognizable for the use of a distinctive and reflective-purple foil on the player's nameplate, Flair Showcase logo, "Legacy Collection" logo on the front and the unique stamp text on the back. However, the player photos, Row design, and holographic finish were the same as the base versions. All Masterpieces were stamped: The Only 1 of 1 Masterpiece. Row 3 and Row 2 Masterpieces featured this stamp on the back while Row 1 Masterpieces featured this stamp on the front.

This 15-card set featured a foil design that simulated droplets of water (similar to the wildly popular "Jambalaya" inserts from the E-X brand in basketball) and featured potential future stars in the game. Each card was serial-numbered to 1000 and stamped on the back.
