Sets Of My Childhood THE SERIES! Part 5:1995-1996 Fleer Flair Hardwood Leader

Welcome to the new series here on Sport Card Collectors!

I decided not only would I make a want list of each of the sets I am chasing in a tab, but I thought a little breakdown and feature may help get me more set help. I am sure many of the sets I am seeking are nickel and dime type of cards so I am hoping my trader friends can be on the lookout for any I don't have.


Every time I hold one of these cards, it takes me right back to my childhood. I remember going into the local box store Ames and picking up packs of Fleer basketball and finding one of these per pack. They are thick high gloss elegant looking cards as you would expect from the Flair name. At one point I had a good portion of the set built then came adulthood and it was lost.

Over the years I have added a few, but nowhere near the 27 card set.

My current haves are,
8,10,15,16,17

So I have many needs to go.

How many of you remember these or collected them?

  2. These are one of my all-time favorite insert sets! I have the whole set, as well as the commemorative uncut sheet that was given away via a wrapper redemption. I don't know for sure, but I think I might have a couple of duplicates... I'll have to check.

  3. Looks like I have the beginning of another stack to set aside for you. Cross #20, Dana Barros, off your need list and I'll get it to you.
