Description

2005 Fleer Patinum is a 125-card set released in April, 2005. This would be the final baseball card product ever released by Fleer as they would file for bankruptcy the following month.

Unlike previous Fleer Platinum products, the design of the base set is not based on a past Fleer sets. The final 25 cards make up a "Rookie" subset, with each card serial-numbered to only 1000 copies. Justin Verlander is the only notable rookie in this set.

Finally, each 18-pack Hobby box came packaged in a collectible tin box, reminisent of 1997 and 1998 Donruss Preferred. There were 15 different tins in all and each 16-tin Hobby case contained one "Platinum" tin.

Distribution

Hobby: 18 packs per tin, five cards per pack (MSRP: $5). 16 tins per case.

Retail: 24 packs per box, five cards per pack. 20 boxes per case.

Diamond Dominators

There are two different versions of the Diamond Dominators set. A 20-card "cardboard" version that was exclusive to retail packs, and a 19-card Hobby-exclusive "Metal" parallel.

NOTES

  • Mariano Rivera (card #13 in the retail set) was NOT included in the Metal set. As a result, the checklist for cards 1-12 are identical in BOTH sets. Cards #13-19 in the Metal set correspond to #14-20 in retail (i.e. Kaz Matsui is #14 in retail, #13 in Metal). For brevity's sake, we are not listing the checklist for the Metal set.
  • All Metal cards have die-cut corners.
