The 1981 Fleer set consists of 697 cards, each one measuring 2-1/2” x 3-1/2”. Fleer’s 1981 baseball card set marked the company’s return to the trading card market – their first endeavor since 1963. Card fronts bear a vivid color likeness with a thick white frame extending to the edges. The image is trimmed in color with the player’s name and position identified near the bottom and the team noted in a baseball logo. The reverse includes his name, position, team, the card number, and statistics. This Fleer set is anchored by Nolan Ryan (#57), Ozzie Smith (#488), and Rickey Henderson (#574), and the rookie cards of Fernando Valenzuela (#149, Harold Baines (#346), Danny Ainge (#418). The first card in the set – Pete Rose (#1) – contains an error that misrepresents his hit total during the 1963 season, but does not significantly impact the card’s value. The same holds true for the Valenzuela rookie, which misspelled his first name.
