1993 Flair

I decided to get started on another collecting goal for 2012. Today I purchased a mostly complete set of 1993 Fleer Flair. To me, this is the best set that was released in 1993. While some will argue that Topps Finest is by far a better product I would have to respectfully disagree. While I'm not a huge fan of Fleer products, next to Authentix, this is a gorgeous set that's under appreciated by many. The thick card stock, UV coating on BOTH sides of the card, gold foil and supreme photography makes this set a winner in my book. As for the "Wave of the Future" insert set that Fleer included, while it is a little hokey, I like the idea behind it. I just wish they didn't have a huge crashing wave in the background. To me that's just totally stupid. But like I've said before in the past, no product is truly perfect.

  1. I love this set.

    I can just see in a disaster flick with a mile high tidal wave some guy going out to get the morning paper and seeing the wave and saying, "That's totally stupid" before getting blown away by the wave.
