Description

1999 Fleer Mystique is a 160-card set released exclusively to Hobby outlets in August 1999. Each four-card pack included one card covered in a blue, opaque, sticker which had to be peeled off to reveal what it was (hence the name "Mystique"). Peel off cards were either short printed super stars from the basic set (#1-#100), a serial-numbered Prospect (#101-#150) or Super Star card (#151-#160) or an insert card. For obvious reasons, the Fresh Ink autographs and Feel the Game game-used cards are not covered.

Mystique is notable for it was the first baseball card set that combined an ample number of "true" rookie cards with the scarcity (by late-90s standards) serial-numbering. While other products of the era had short-printed base cards, many of these sets did not have SPed rookies -- or if they did, the "rookies" were often cards of players whose "true" RC was in a previous year's release. The concept of base sets with serial-numbered RCs would be a feature part of most early 2000s card sets.

Pat Burrell's 99 Mystique card, in particular, was one of the hotter rookie cards of the era as, although he had 25 "true" Rookie Cards issued in 1999, the Fleer Mystique was the only one that was serial-numbered.

Distribution

24 packs per box, three cards plus one "covered" card per pack (MSRP: $4.99). Hobby only.
