1999 Fleer Tradition Football Hobby


Hope everyone is doing well.  I'm off tonight so I figured it's time to put up another quick post from the National $1 packs.

10 cards per pack, 300 cards in the set.  Here's what I got:

#32 - Garrison Hearst
#25 - Derrick Alexander

Ah, pure turn of the century Fantasy Football awesomeness.  I'm very sure both of these guys saw some time on my teams' roster at some point.

#277 - Edgerrin James (RC)
#266 - Antwan Edwards (RC)

Another turn of the century Fantasy stud here in Edgerrin James.  Other key rookies back in 1999 were Daunte Culpepper, Torry Holt, Donovan McNabb, and Ricky Williams.

#70 - Joey Galloway
#114 - Leroy Hoard

Here's the checklist for those who are interested.

#50 - Stephen Boyd
#193 - Muhsin Muhammad

The design of the 1999 Fleer football release matches it's baseball version.  I don't think the baseball release color-coded the player's name and team however (here, the AFC teams were red, the NFC teams were blue, and the rookies were gold).

#284 - Shaun King (RC)
#84 - Marvin Harrison
No # - Checklist

Ah yes, 1999 was the draft where there were 5 QBs taken in the first 12 picks.  Shaun wasn't one of the 5; he was the 50th pick. 

The checklist was at the end of the pack.  Here are some backs:

Anyway, that's the pack.  Not a bad pack for the time; lots of solid players and a couple recognizable rookies as well.  No inserts, but a nice design makes this a winner in my book.  Thanks for reading!

Shaun King and Edgerrin James in the same pack? This would have been a really nice pack back in the day.
