Trivia

  • After years of ordering teams by World Series winner, World Series loser, ALCS/NLCS losers (better record first) then all non-playoff teams from best record to worst, Fleer moved to ordering teams from best overall record (Oakland) to worst (Baltimore) with this set, but there are two mistakes: 1) 89-73 Boston is listed before 91-71 Minnesota, and 2) 85-77 Pittsburgh is listed before 87-75 Toronto.
  • Six Oakland Athletics cards have red stripes instead of green: #3 Todd Burns, #11 Rick Honeycutt, #14 Doug Jennings, #15 Felix Jose, #18 Gene Nelson and #26 Curt Young. This error was never corrected.
  • Although players are sorted alphabetically by last name within each team, #367 Scott is listed before #368 Ryan within the Astros group. Checklist #657 lists Ryan as #367 and Scott as #368.

I know that print quality is not a strong suit for many of the older sets, but I was wondering if anyone else has noticed a black dot on the gray header on the back of Rick Reuschel, #340, above the "R" in his last name? I have multiple recurrences of this dot in the same location, same size, and same color. Just curious if this is something that qualifies as a variation or not.

What about the fact every player on each team has same colored lines top and bottom of picture except for a few A’s players. Most A’s players have green lines but 5 players have red lines instead isn’t that a error of some kind UER or COR

#615 - Oswald Peraza RC, UER - Baltimore Orioles

The UER states that the card shows his name incorrectly as Oswaldo. Other sources show this as being his name, as well. Why is this considered an error? Maybe TCDB has his name incorrect?
