Description

1991 Ultra was Fleer’s foray into the premium brand market to compete with Upper Deck and Leaf. The complete base set consists of 400 cards in one series. The set is arranged alphabetically first by team then by player. Subsets include Major League Prospects (373-390), Great Performances (391-396) and Checklists (397-400). Also there was a ten-card insert set called “Ultra Team”. Collector’s terminology refers to the set as “Ultra Gold”.

The cards featured three full color photos on the back making it the first time a baseball card had 4 photos of one player on a card.

Fleer claimed in their original press release that production of Ultra would be limited to 15 percent of the 1991 Fleer Baseball.

The set was originally titled "Fleer Elite" but was changed after Donruss introduced the Elite Series inserts earlier in the year.

Distribution

Foil: 36 packs per box, 14 cards plus one team logo sticker per pack.

Collation data from one box. Base Set Completion: 92% (368 of 400); Duplicates: 128; Ultra Team Insert Completion: 80% (8 of 10)

Reviews

1991 Ultra received a poor review in the December 1991 issue of Beckett Baseball Card Monthly. The set was featured in the “Card Critic” column titled “Ultra Shaky”. Chuck Roethel had several negative remarks such as “a general yawn”, “may not seem as exciting as other premium sets” and “crying for help”. He also bemoaned the absence of rookie cards for Jeff Bagwell, Juan Gonzalez, Scott Erickson & Mike Timlin but still felt Fleer did a decent job with player selection. In contrast, Mr. Roethel gave a glowing review for the Ultra Team subset describing it as “an almost perfect card” and stated, “This is how the entire set should have looked”.
