1987 Fleer Award Winners

If you hadn't figured out by year three of the Fleer Limited Edition 44-card box sets that they were mailing it in, then this one left no doubt. Bad looking design, flat-out awful player selection, and dubious "awards" highlight this set. Much like Over The Top, this is so bad that it's actually pretty entertaining.

While I can't post scans of everybody, some "Award Winners" include: Bob Boone, Bob Forsch, Bob Knepper, Candy Maldonado, Roger McDowell, Gary Pettis, Johnny Ray, Robbie (sic) Thompson, and Frank White. Wow! Stellar!

I love the look on Webster's face. "The most triples? They give an award for that?"

If Blyleven really did strike out 3000 batters in 1986 then it's a travesty that he's not in the Hall Of Fame.

There is only one Tiger in the set and he doesn't look all that thrilled about his award either.

28- Lance Parrish

It's not all bad though. There are seven HOF in the set. Seven out of forty-four. 

Ok, I've got nothing here.....
