Set: 1984 Fleer

Card: #288 Chris Speier


“ Good design. I always liked Fleer. He physically resembles one of my local card dealers. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This was always my favorite of the early Fleer baseball designs. ” -UKboogie

“ The pitch is a little high. I love this set, always have, and was thrilled to finally get the update set to this one a little while back for a decent price. Looks GREAT in a binder! ” -vrooomed

“ That camera angle makes it look like he's trying to hit a looping, underhand slo-pitch. Wow! Over 1700 games of big league experience, and looks like he could be waiting tables at Olive Garden. Maybe he plays slo-pitch when not serving pasta... Supplementary "did you know": Drove in 8 runs in a single game in 1982. Drove in 26 runs in 113 games in 1979. ” -dilemma19

“ Cool Pre-Junk (or beginning of Junk) Fleer. Odd that this is now part of DC Baseball History yet wasn't back then. :) ” -captkirk42

“ That's fun photography. ” -wax_house

“ Solid and gets the job done. Typical of 80's cards. Love it! ” -carthage44

“ He can't seriously be thinking about swinging at that pitch, even if it is BP. ” -NJDevils

“ SWEET card! Looks like he is going to be way late on that swing. Must be taking. :) ” -RoyalChief

“ LOL. Great pic. "Hey, where'd the ball go?" "It's stuck to your bat. Now quit using so much pine tar!" One of Fleer's better early designs. Nice and simple. ” -C2Cigars
