April 2012 Affordable Group Break - 2003 Fleer Double Header


Next up is 2003 Fleer Double Header.  These "mini" cards are the same size as the current '87 Minis from 2012 Topps.  They also feature an artsy look which I really like.

20 packs, 8 cards per pack.  180 card basic set which 45 are Flip cards and 15 are On-Deck Flip Prospects. Game-used cards are inserted 1:10 packs.  15 Let's Play Too! (1:5), 20 Twin Bill (1:10), 10 Keystone Combinations (1:10), 15 Matinee Idols (1:20).

Pack 4:
#118 Mark Quinn (Royals)
#104 Joe Borchard (White Sox)

#12PT Josh Bard - Let's Play Too! (Indians)
#217 & #218 Roger Clemens / Derek Jeter (Yankees)
#271 & #272 Josh Hancock / Freddy Sanchez (Red Sox)
#066 Austin Kearns (Reds)
#048 Torii Hunter (Twins)
#167 Bret Boone (Mariners)

Pack 5:
#149 Sean Burroughs (Padres)
Photobucket
Alex Rodriguez (Rangers) / Craig Biggio (Astros) - Keystone Combinations Jersey
#199 & #200 Larry Walker / Todd Helton (Rockies)
#191 & #192 Sammy Sosa / Kerry Wood (Cubs)
#001 Ramon Vazquez (Padres)
#113 Ellis Burks (Indians)
#168 Roy Halladay (Blue Jays)
#263 Ichario (Mariners) / #264 Sammy Sosa (Cubs)

The first hit of the box goes to the Astros & jaybarkerfan!  I know a certain Astros fan that will probably want this card.  For the two team Flip cards I've decided that the card will go to the team featured on the front.  I feel this is fair since it would be hard to display the inside player in a top loader or 9 pocket page.  If anyone disagrees with me please let me know.

Pack 6:
#156 Manny Ramirez (Red Sox)
#132 John Olerud (Mariners)
#120 Carlos Lee (White Sox)
#229 & #230 Kazuhiro Sasaki / Ichiro (Mariners)
#293 Josh Bard (Indians) / #294 Wil Nieves (Padres)

#165 Adrian Beltre (Dodgers)

Pack 7:
#155 Eric Karros (Cubs)
#127 Bernie Williams (Yankees)
#106 Kevin Mench (Rangers)
