2006 Fleer Baseball

It's kind of difficult opening this pack, knowing in my heart of hearts that it's really a pack of Upper Deck. Sure, they tone down the foil and the gloss, but what we're really getting is the K-Mart version of Upper Deck. Still, I generally like what I see, but no more money will be spent on this product.

I do like, however, Fleer's negotiable price policy, evident from the blank white rectangle in the upper left corner of the pack. Bring along a sharpie, write down what you feel is a fair price, and the transaction is complete.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
107 Nomar Garciaparra (Cubs uni, Dodgers logo. Would have loved a "Free Agent Signing" designation somewhere prominent on this card, but it's not happening.)
294 Hanley Ramirez RC (Again, Red Sox uniform, Marlins logo.)
73 Chris Capuano

362 Joe Nathan
141 Hee-Seop Choi
ST-1 David Wright Stars of Tomorrow

365 Francisco Liriano RC

114 Jayson Werth (How does he manage to spell both his first and last name incorrectly?)
229 Vinny Castilla
8 Garret Anderson

Grade: B+
The Liriano card is very nice, but the Wright makes the pack. Plus a Brewer to boot! Actually, Capuano had a really disappointing season this year. His best moment was probably belting a HR in a June loss.
