I love the 90's

This Paul Molitor card is from Fleer 1996. I'm sure many of you remember the 96 and 97 Fleer sets that were made of a non-glossy paper material and were marketed as being better for autographs. I loved these sets simply because of them being different. The different material also gave a different look to the photos that I really like. I may have to send some of these out for TTM autos. This particular card I pulled from a pack back in the day and it was devoid of foil. Some cards end up like that from Topps these days but without a border on the Fleer cards I think it looks pretty cool without the foil.


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE those years of Fleer. There is something about the texture and look of the card without so much gloss that really thrills me. I have but a few - one day I will need to work on completing either year.

    1. Yeah they are one of my favorites from the 90's. I've thought about picking up a box but they're pricier than I expected.

      Another reason I like them is that they don't immediately crease if you accidentally bend them, unlike glossy cards.
