But after experimenting with buying some blasters of 2019 product (I got some Topps Series 1, some Topps Series 2, some Topps Opening Day, some Topps Big League Baseball, and some Panini Donruss), I determined two things. One is that even though I already have plenty of junk-era cards, I still enjoy buying junk-era cards more than buying modern cards. I don't anticipate buying any blasters again next year. The other is that the problem of all the sets being the same is still with us, but instead of manifesting in these boxed sets it manifests in the insert sets.
One iron-clad rule of these boxed sets is that they always included Don Mattingly. So I won't show all, or even many, of the cards from each set, and instead I'll just show the Mattingly. I started seriously collecting in 1987 but the Fleer 44-card boxed sets began in 1985 as far as I can tell, with a single one called "Limited Edition." I didn't choose the 1985 set because it looks a lot like the 1990 Fleer design, and I have plenty of 1990 Fleer. So I went with the green-and-gold 1986 Limited Edition instead. For this they used a snap of Mattingly in a t-shirt seemingly during a practice.
Thanks for reading!
