Moving on to the next set we see a bunch of in the 20 in 20 lot, is 1995-96 Fleer Metal basketball. Well, it isn't the whole set, as it was released in 2 series, as were many, with this set being only 100 base cards (numbered 121-220). So, the question I really have going through this will be more of a who is missing than a who is here, but let's take a look (keeping in mind 121 was seen yesterday).
I don't mind the look of the Metal cards in hand - very much like hockey's Black Diamond sets which look much better in hand than in scans. The Metal cards allow for more colour variation still with the backgrounds, and look a little more rust colour in hand - which goes a bit with the colour of a basketball, so kind of get it.
The names are really hard to read though.
I opened a fair share of 95/96 Metal packs (both basketball and hockey). There was a point where I stopped enjoying the look, because it was a little too silver... but I've grown to re-appreciate them over the years.ReplyDelete
