Tino Tuesdays #58: 2000 Fleer Gamers #57
I don’t know why, but when I flip through my Tino Martinez cards, I always stop on this one. It’s from the 2000 Fleer Gamers set. In 2000, Fleer put out 10 sets. Ten! There may be more, but that’s what I counted quickly on Baseball Card Pedia. It’s a thick, metallic card. I’d call it a cleaner, thicker Fleer Metal…but not on steroids like Topps Stars N Steel.
Anyways, it’s a catchy card. I don’t have any other Yanks from the set, and don’t remember buying any packs of it. From a Google Images search, the trip was team color specific, which is cool.
Without a doubt, it’s a very representative card of what you’d find if you were shopping for cards in 2000.
