Tim Raines 1987 Fleer ‘Superstar Special’ w/Juan Samuel

Tim Raines 1987 Fleer ‘Superstar Special’ w/Juan Samuel

Man, just look at those great uniforms of the mid-1980′s.  Classic stuff right there!!!

This card comes from the 1987 Fleer baseball card subset titled ‘Superstar Special’.  Fleer did a great job with this series as they often got multiple players on a single card that normally would not be pictured together.  I have to guess that most of the images came from Spring Training or All-Star games when the scene on the field was a lot more laid back than during regular season and post-season play.

This card features two of the fastest players in the game back then – Tim Raines & Juan Samuel.  Tagged as ‘Doubles and Triples’ the card pays homage to the way that these two superstars ran the bases for their teams.
