Nostalgic Box Break: 1999 Fleer Ultra (Part One)
I've always had a soft spot for Ultra, as it was Fleer's answer to Stadium Club, but as it went on the 'design' became even more of an afterthought than with SC, with Ultra just using the same cursive-foil one as it went on, just with subtle changes, and periodical exceptions to the rule.
The photography in Ultra was ridiculously fun, closer to Collector's Choice than Stadium Club, and just all-around cool at times. It's a shame that they were just-about closing up shop when I got into the hobby in 2007.
Anyway, this box has 24 packs, 10 cards per pack. It'll probably take me three posts, depending on my mood at the end of 8 packs. Still, it's sure to be a fun rip.
I'm thinking...I'm thinking...
(Before you all comment about the home run race, I was being sarcastic).
Tomorrow, or sometime soon, I'll post the next third of the box. All very nice stuff ahead.
