Description

1999 Sports Illustrated Greats of the Game is a 90-card set released by Fleer in the summer of 1999. Each seven-card pack contained one autograph. As the name suggests, the product focuses on "The greats of the game" and as such contains no active MLB players.

After a three year partnership, this would be the final Sports Illustrated product released by Fleer -- although the Greats of the Game brand name would continue.

Distribution

12 packs per box, seven cards per pack (MSRP: $15).
