Brand: Fleer Ultra
Insert set: All-Star
Card number: 10
Let's be honest, the year 1995 wasn't great in terms of designs for the Fleer baseball card company.
While I normally really like the Fleer Ultra line, the regular base card design is an abomination (perhaps even worse than Fleer's infamous 1995 flagship offering). Fleer compounded the problem by making a terribly pointless parallel for their Ultra line. Then, to throw some icing on this turd cake of a set, Fleer stuck Barry Larkin in two different insert sets. The first was an Award Winner set in which the card design looks like it was made by a drunk monkey using MS Paint and the other was the hideous All-Star card you see above.
While all of the above is reason enough to hate 1995 Fleer Ultra, it actually gets worse according to Baseballcardpedia.
That hideous All-Star card featured above?
Yeah, there's a parallel of it.
Same with the Award Winner set. Ugh. That's two more cards that I need to track down from a set that I definitely do not care for one little bit... The so-called joys of being a player collector I guess!
