1993 Flair box

Description

The inaugural Flair Baseball set - "presented" by Fleer - was released exclusively to the Hobby in August of 1993. '93 Flair (originally titled "Fleer Limited") was Fleer's first foray into "super-premium" cards and was designed to compete with Topps' Finest, and Upper Deck SP. According to Fleer, production of Flair was 15% of Fleer Ultra.

The 300-card base set was printed on 24-point thick cardstock - by far the thickest cardstock ever used on a trading card - with three additional points of glossy UV-coating slathered on both sides. The cards were printed on a six-color printing press (as opposed to a four-color press) and had two player photos on the front.

Each pack of 10 cards was wrapped in a clear, fin-sealed, plastic wrap that was then placed inside a shrink-wrapped "box" that resembled a pack of cigarettes. These efforts were made to reduce tampering.

There were no notable rookies in the set and the only insert is a 20-card, prospect-themed, "Wave of the Future" insert that featured key early cards of Mike Piazza, Jim Edmonds, and Manny Ramirez.

Distribution

24 packs per box, ten cards per pack.

Eight promo cards were issued by Fleer to promote the debut of 1993 Flair Baseball. The cards were identical to their base set counterparts, with the exception of each card being sequentially-numbered "000" on the back. According to reports, Fleer was forced to destroy a 5000 count box of promos to avoid potential difficulties with MLB Properties and the MLBPA.
