1992 Fleer Greg Maddux
Does this look like a poster to you? Yeah, me too! The design of this 1992 Fleer baseball card screams early 90’s sports poster!!!
I actually like this card quite a bit. While the design is relatively simple, the colors are bold and work very well together. The green border allows for the Cubs’ colors of Red, White, and Blue to really stand out. And that Green also compliments the wonderful Wrigley Field Ivy wall perfectly.
Lastly, that little part of Maddux’s left arm that goes over the Green border gives this card some depth. The feeling of Maddux hurling the ball off of the mound would be lost if that small, but important design element had been missed.
Great job Fleer!! An instant classic for my Greg Maddux player collection!!!
