Mike Schmidt 1988 Fleer
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, the 1988 Fleer baseball card design is a true ‘Hit Or Miss’ look.
If your team colors are Red or Royal Blue, you have a very nice looking, and color coordinated baseball card.
If your colors are Powder-Blue and Maroon, sadly, you are just not that lucky…
Proof of this is Mike Schmidt’s card from the 1988 Fleer set.
Take a peek:
See what I mean??
If the Red was replaced by Maroon, we would be okay. But it is not, so for me, it just does not work…
In the backgorund of the card, you see the backstop of beautiful Wrigley Field. You can also catch a glimpse of the bat-girl and the Cubs’ catcher. The ’88 Fleer design actually works better for them than it does for the main subject, Mike Schmidt.
