Vince Coleman ‘Fab Five’ – Card #5 – 1986 Fleer ‘Cardinals Ignitors’ w/Willie McGee

Vince Coleman ‘Fab Five’ – Card #5 – 1986 Fleer ‘Cardinals Ignitors’ w/Willie McGee

Now that my Vince Coleman player collection is complete, it is time to show of my favorite five cards from the set.

Card #5 – 1986 Fleer ‘Cardinals Ignitors’ w/Willie McGee

COLEMAN FAB 5

 

I like how quickly baseball card companies attached themselves to Vince Coleman after he emerged on the scene with the Cardinals.  After a successful rookie campaign, both Fleer and Donruss founds ways to add additional cards to their base sets so Coleman could be featured twice.

Vince Coleman and Willie McGee were both huge spark-plugs for the Cardinals’ offense – each of them scoring 100+ runs in 1985, Coleman with 107 and McGee with 114.

The Donruss card fails, but the Fleer is sweet!
