In a similar move to other card companies, Fleer brought out a retro range towards the end of the 90s. Fleer Tradition produced a normal-looking base set and then additional retro styles cards. Unlike Upper Deck, who borrowed freely from Topps templates, Fleer had a couple of their own retro designs they could use.
Card Number 415: Fleer Tradition Vintage '63 (Insert), 1998; #52
This was Fleer's revitalisation of their 1963 design. There were 128 cards in this 'vintage' insert series, along with 600 base cards and multiple other inserts. This was the era of big card sets!
Card Number 416: Fleer Tradition, 1999; #43
Tony did bat flips too!
This is the base card in the set. The full bleed photo marks the set out as more high end.
One thing I would say about Fleer cards at the end of the 90s - they included the year under the Fleer logo. That's very handy for collectors.
Card Number 417: Fleer Tradition - Vintage '61 (Insert), 1999; #43
This time Fleer revived their own design from 1961 for the 50 card insert series. It's the same photo as the base card with Tony cut out and dropped on a plain background.
The write up notes that Tony was the closest active player to 3,000 hits - a milestone he would reach during the 1999 season.
Total: 417 cards
