2003 Fleer Hardball - Round Numbers insert

Year: 2003 
Card Manufacturer: Fleer
Card Set: Hardball
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Round Numbers
Card Number 14RN
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered, Round
Serial Number: 0469/1000

An interesting set from 2003.  Like I mentioned in earlier posts 2003 is close to the pinnacle, if not the pinnacle, of set production ever.  You had multiple companies putting out a couple new products every week.  But with all the competition and just overwhelming number of card sets we did get some neat concepts and innovations. 

Fleer Hardball was an all round card set.  Kind of like the old Allen and Ginter round cards from the late 1800's.  The base set was a decent size of 280 cards and there were multiple inserts, relics, and even autographed cards in this set.

Robin is featured in the Round Numbers insert set which featured all retired players and I think they were all HOFers too.  Cards are serial numbered to 1000.  There were a couple of the subjects that also had a relic version of this card, but Robin isn't one of them.

A very neat oddball in the collection.
