2006-07 Fleer Ultra Basketball


Got this pack out of the bargain bin at Target for $1.59. Have no idea what these cards will look like or what we could pull... the back of the pack doesn’t state any odds for relics, autos, or inserts. So, with 8 cards per pack, here goes…


#56 – David Wesley


#42 – Richard Hamilton


#68 – Cuttino Mobley


#197 – Sarunas Jasikevicius


#152 – Earl Watson


#140 – Brad Miller


#193 – Monta Ellis


Gold Medallion #190 – David Lee


Clean looking cards on glossy stock. Sharp photography, the depth of field is much more shallow than what you’d see in the Upper Deck base set… which has the effect of making the backgrounds less distracting, but then the picture as a whole seems less vivid. The colors look incredibly vibrant. The player’s name in foil with elaborate font and matching team color seems like an unnecessary element; otherwise, it's a solidly designed set.
