Flashback Product of the Week: 1974 Fleer Patches Football

Its no secret that manufactured patches get pushed to the side like a piece of trash in The Hobby today.  Most collectors don’t enjoy them because some companies classify them as “hits”, but in my opinion some of them are cool to own.  Believe it or not but manufactured patches surfaced a long time before any Sweet Spot product.  Back in the 70’s Fleer made a few different sets based around manufactured patches.  Each pack had a handful of team emblem patches for you to collect.  Needless to say, back then manufactured patches didn’t get much love either.  You can find sealed boxes of 1974 Fleer Patches Football for well under $100.00.  Fleer also made products like this for baseball, basketball, and hockey.
