It’s bad enough that this year’s SPx baseball was kind of a disaster but football collectors got Shadow Box cards. Now hockey collectors are being treated to beautiful E-X inserts for the second year in a row with Fleer Ultra.
I pulled three of these inserts while bustin’ 2009/’10 Fleer Ultra this weekend and while my review won’t be up until Monday, you can check out a very high quality scan of the E-X insert by clicking the image below.
I have a question for baseball collectors. Can you name one great Upper Deck insert that didn’t include a game-used relic and/or certified autograph? I can’t name a single one but in Topps we have Propaganda, Turkey Red, etc.
Upper Deck clearly knows that today’s collector wants more than memorabilia and autographs. They have included great photography in their flagship since the beginning, now it’s time for great inserts in baseball again.
Here’s hoping Upper Deck brings back Fleer Baseball in 2010.
