Description

2000 Greats of the Game is a 107-card set released by Fleer exclusive to Hobby outlets in late March, 2000. Fueled by a now-legendary collection of autographs, the Yankee Clippings game-used jersey cards, and the superior design of the base set, the product turned out to be one of the most popular releases of the 2000 calendar.

Each 24-pack Hobby box will yield four autographs.

Distribution

24 packs per box, six cards per pack (MSRP: $4.99). Hobby only.

This 93-card insert features autographed cards of some of the greatest players in major league history. The card design closely parallels the base set, except of course for the player's signature. It is widely considered to be one of the most significant baseball card sets of the 21st Century.

NOTES:

  • Shortly after Greats of the Game was released, representatives at Fleer released cryptic details on a few cards confirming the widespread belief among collectors of suspected short-prints within the set. It's known that the two scarcest cards are Johnny Bench and Mike Schmidt with production for both believed to be in the 175-200 card range. In addition to the Schmidt and Bench short-prints, other SPs include (with estimated production runs): Kirby Puckett and Phil Rizzuto (around 200 copies each) Reggie Jackson (250), George Brett (275), Whitey Ford, Tommie Henrich, and Don Mattingly (300). Joe Carter, Stan Musial, Jim Palmer, Ozzie Smith, Duke Snider, Warren Spahn, and Robin Yount were also SPed with production estimated in the 350-500 card range.
  • Whereas all cards were signed with a black Sharpie pen, Dave Concepcion signed some of his cards in red ink.
  • Herb Score mistakenly signed several of his base autographs with an "ROY '55" notation. Score was supposed to sign 55 purple-bordered Memorable Moments parallels (see below) with the notation.
  • A Yogi Berra card signed in blue ink is rumored to exist.
  • In 2004, a Fleer released an autographed Derek Jeter card done in the style of 2000 Greats of the Game. Over time, this card has been accepted by master set collectors as being part of the 2000 GotG Autographs set -- despite the fact that Jeter (or any other active player) did not appear in the 2000 GotG base set. The card was made available as a replacement for autograph exchange cards of other players that Fleer could not fulfill (lucky, them). Only 150 copies of this Jeter card were produced; however, the card is not serial-numbered. This card is NOT to be confused with a similar looking Jeter autographed card that was part of the 2001 Fleer Derek Jeter Legacy Collection. That card -- which has the same photograph as the 2004-issued card, has the Legacy Collection logo on the reverse side and a 2001 copyright date.
  • Following Stan Musial's death in 2013, his marketing company "Stan the Man, Inc." released "Player Sample" signed versions of his card. (Apparently, Fleer gave each signer a number of un-signed copies of their card to do with as they wished.) All cards were slabbed by BGS -- which notated their Stan the Man provenance on the slab's label -- and sold on the secondary market. While the card looks identical to Musial's pack-issued card, all the Player Sample examples were signed in blue ink as opposed to the normal black ink.
  • In 2014, Robert Edward Auctions sold a complete set including a Dave Concepcion red ink, a Herb Score "ROY '55" base autograph, and the Derek Jeter redemption card for $3851

Memorable Moments

Each Memorable Moments card is an autographed parallel of the player's regular GotG autograph and is notated by the player with one of his career achievements. Each card is hand-numbered on the reverse side to the last two digits of the achievement's year. The fronts of these cards are purple-bordered instead of gold. Please note that Herb Score signed some of his base autograph cards with the "ROY '55" notation.

This insert set features 15 cards that contain pieces of game-used jerseys of legendary New York Yankee players. This set represents one of the earliest attempts by manufacturers to incorporate a theme into a memorabilia-based insert. All cards feature jerseys EXCEPT for the Mantle card which features a pair of home, pin-striped game-used pants. There are also two different Willie Randolph cards, one with the home jersey, the other with an away jersey.
