Why Do You Box Me Up, Buttercup?

Is it just me, or did Fleer put out a seemingly endless stream of boxed sets in the late 80's?  But the designs were fairly complex for the time, and definitely have a unique feel to them.

This card came from Fleer's Limited Edition boxed set, which probably wasn't really all that limited.  I picked up the complete set from my LCS somewhere around 2000 or 2001 for $1.  At the time the Pete Rose card was the big draw for me, but I'm glad this Pena was able to take care of one of my pesky Pirate needs years later.

  1. I never thought about it until you mentioned it, but Fleer did put out a lot of boxed sets in the 80s.
