Pack Rip - 1996 Fleer Red Sox

Picked this up at the hobby shop months ago, just getting to it now.  Ten new Red Sox cards for a buck?  Sure.  Besides, the pack itself is clearly labeled "$1.99 USA" so I guess I really got a "steal" here.

I'm a huge fan of the 1996 Fleer set, with it's full-bleed photos and matte finish.  These seemed foreign to me though, because they're printed on glossy stock and use foil.  Not the 1996 Fleer that I know.

Here's the back.  As you can see along the bottom, there are 20 cards in this Red Sox team set, so I'm getting half a set just by busting this pack.

I'm not going to provide commentary on all of these, long day so I'll let the cards speak for themselves for the most part.





Lucky me, one of my ten cards happened to be this uninspired team logo.



Well, I guess that provided a few minutes of enjoyment on the cheap.  And my Red Sox collection increased by ten cards.  So there's that.

Cool break and neat idea by Topps. I wish there was a product with just New Jersey Devils....

The logo card is a killjoy, but I like the rest of 'em. Though, isn't it kinda weird/silly to put cards from a 20-card set into packs of 10??
