Starting Traditions

 Before the quick Magic interlude, we were working through 1995-96 Fleer Metal, so we have that finish up with first.

The Nuts & Bolts subset is a way to shove more star cards in the end of the set. We are missing the Jordan and Pippen level cards, so a few more MIA here, but all in, we ended up with about 90 of the 100 series cards.

Next up, a new set and one I haven't seen before...

2004-05 Fleer Tradition does a good job of making a set that looks vintage, and the card stock is nice and heavy as well. The background fade is not something I personally like, but it is consistent with the vintage look and design.

A nice Jalen Rose from his days with the Raps.

I'm guessing we won't be seeing LeBron James in the base set, as he is one name I am assuming, like Jordan, will be pulled out in any way shape and form. Hock, these days, the way prices are, one LeBron card of any type would probably pay for the whole lot!

    1. Personal pref - would love the "normal" background to go with it, great dunk action either way.

  2. This lot sure is producing a lot of neat cards!

  3. That was the last set ever released by Fleer if my memory is correct. There are colored parallels as well, blue, green and yellow, the yellow are SN.

    1. Given the timing, I figure it was close to the end for Fleer. Not sure yellow would work well with the background colour, but blue may be alright.
