1995 Fleer

One year after issuing one of the best looking sets of all time, Fleer gave the world this mess. This was the year they gave all the teams in each division a similar design. The funniest part about this is that the design of the A.L. East teams was probably the best of the bunch. (Yeah, we were once in that division...)

The 1995 Fleer Detroit Tigers:
44 Danny Bautista
45 Joe Boever
46 Milt Cuyler
47 Storm Davis
48 John Doherty
49 Junior Felix
50 Cecil Fielder
51 Travis Fryman
52 Mike Gardiner
53 Kirk Gibson
54 Chris Gomez
55 Buddy Groom
56 Mike Henneman
57 Chad Kreuter
58 Mike Moore
59 Tony Phillips
60 Juan Samuel
61 Mickey Tettleton
62 Alan Trammell
63 David Wells
64 Lou Whitaker

I've only got one insert card, and it's not bad looking. I like cards that incorporate newspaper themes. But would it have been that much trouble to maybe throw a Tigers headline or box score back there, instead of a Braves-Giants box?

9 Cecil Fielder

The Tigers were well represented in the Update set. Unfortunately they were well represented by mediocre to poor players. (Bob Higginson notwithstanding)

22 Shannon Penn
23 Todd Steverson
24 Sean Whiteside
