Flashback Product of the Week: 1995 Fleer Extra Bases Game Test Samples

 photo 95extrabasestest_zpsce44b1bf.jpg

Fleer debuted its Extra Bases set in 1994.  The cards measured 2.5″ x 4.75″ and came along with the motto “35% Larger… 35% More Action”.  Unfortunately this didn’t equal 35% more success.  The set ultimately flopped and carries very little value today.  Sealed boxes can easily be found for under $20.00.  I guess Fleer was hoping that baseball fans would enjoy these larger cards like NFL fans did when they issued their Game Day sets.

Fleer actually had an Extra Bases product in the works for 1995 before the idea got canned.  1995 Fleer Extra Bases was going to be some type of collectible card game.  The card’s designer turned their designs over to Fleer, and then a test batch was produced.  Once Fleer decided not to go through with the idea, they returned everything to the designer.  About 50 to 60 test sets were made.  Each containing 25 cards.  Eventually they found their way out onto the secondary market.

Because they are test samples, they do hold much more value when compared to its predecessor.  Its really hit or miss though and depends on the player.  They can sell from $10.00 to $100.00 each.
