Dennis Eckersley ‘Fab Five’ – Card #3 – 1982 Fleer
Now that my Dennis Eckersley collection is complete, it is time to show of my favorite five cards from the set.
Card #3 – 1982 Fleer
Sure, Fleer will not win any awards with the baseball card designs that they offered us over the first few years of their existence.
But, every once in a while, a card stands out from the rubble and muck. And that is how Dennis Eckersley’s 1982 Fleer jumped out and claimed the #3 spot on my ‘Fab Five’ list.
Check it out:
Sure, is that same old boring design that we’re used to seeing from Fleer in the very-early 1980′s.
But look at the photo!!! It is CLASSIC!!!
First, you have all of the spectators with their ‘Standing Room Only’ tickets watching ‘Eck’ in action. This picture was certainly taken during Spring Training.
And then you have the photo of ‘Eck’ – and just look at that leg kick.
Is he scraping the clay from his spikes or is he winding up???
You be the judge!!!
