1985 Fleer Super Star Special – ‘NL Pitcher’s Nightmare’ – Starring Mike Schmidt & Ryne Sandberg
Fleer did a great job of pairing up players with their ‘Superstar Special’ sets from the mid-1980’s.
And this card from the 1985 Fleer set is no exception.
The card tagged as ‘NL Pitcher’s Nightmare’ features two future Hall of Famers, and two great sluggers – Mike Schmidt and Ryne Sandberg.
Of the pair, I would have to think that at the time this shot was snapped that Schmidt was the more feared hitter. He was a veteran by the time the 1985 baseball season rolled around while Sandberg was still getting his feet wet. Still, Ryno mashed a ton of homers early in his career and this is a magnificent pairing.
A great addition to my Mike Schmidt player collection!!!
