One of my favorites from the 90s

Every Baseball card collector that grew up in the 90s understands the nostalgia of pulling a tough insert as opposed to pulling a tough auto. (Most sets had no autos in them) It was always satisfying to hit that 1 in 72 pack insert or 1 n 218 pack insert in the one box you were opening. One of my favorite looking insert sets from back then was from 1995 Fleer. They were the double sided league leaders cards.

Here is one of Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett.

Good photography, the gold and black blend well together. A satisfying pull if there ever was one. Also back in 1995 Fleer there was the occasional hot box where you'd hit all the good inserts (jackpot!) Anyone know if 1995 fleer doesn't stick together too bad? That's one old box that I'd like to get my hands on to open.

Thanks for reading!


  1. That Kirby is definitely good as gold!

  2. I remember those! I've been searching for old Pacific parallels and inserts.
