Description

2002 Fleer Platinum is a 301-card set released in April, 2002. As with the successful 2001 Fleer Platinum set, the 2002 version was modeled after a previously-released Fleer set -- in this case 1987 Fleer. Also, multiple pack configurations -- each with its own exclusive inserts -- were produced.

Just like many 2002 products, there are no significant rookie cards.

Rookies

NOTES:

  • Each Rookie features two players EXCEPT #301 (Kaz Ishii) and #302 (So Taguchi) which were late additions to the set. Just like other 2002 sets that included Ishii and Taguchi as late additions (such as 2002 Leaf), in an effort to artificially manufacture extra "buzz" around another two Japanese rookies, Fleer produced these cards in roughly half the quantity as any other dual-player Rookie.
  • Due to licensing issues, card #280 (Bill Ortega / Satoru Komiyama) was pulled from the set. Bill Ortega (who had five ABs with the Cardinals in September 2001), was taken off the Cardinals 40-man roster, and as such could no longer be included in any Fleer set. A number of copies of card #280 with Komiyama's picture cut-out (not unlike the 2006 Topps Alex Gordon card) did emerge from packs, but the 2002 Fleer Platinum set is considered complete without it.
  • Despite the subset's "Rookie" name, the vast majority of these cards are not "true rookies."
