Random Wax: 1983 Fleer Baseball

The Astros are up 2-1 in the World Series and I'm sharing another pack I picked up at the show.  This was a 1983 Fleer pack.  I like the simple design but wish they had done a different border color.  There were 15 cards plus one sticker. My pull is highlighted by Rickey Henderson.  That one goes right into the personal collection.  After Rickey it is a little thin though I am happy with the Downing, Scioscia, and Gedman cards.  The Scioscia card really stands out with a great action shot which is not the norm in this set.  I always liked Fleer stickers.  What I didn't remember is these stickers have the 1982 home game stats for the team on the back.  Nice bonus for a sticker card.  Again ripping packs is all about the fun and this brought back some good memories.  


  1. I've got a soft spot for 1983 Fleer. I like the simplicity of the design, the solid rookie card class, plus I bought a lot of this stuff when I was a kid.

    1. Yeah the nostalgia alone keeps me going back on these packs.
