Top 100 Cards of My Collection-#92 04-05 Fleer Sweet Sigs Sweet Stroke Quad Patch T-Mac/Iverson/KG/Baron Davis

After the initial game used jersey craze, card companies had to find a way to make game used jersey cards even more desirable. Enter the "patch" card. Collectors were getting tired of the one color (especially the boring white or grey) jersey cards and wanted something with a little more oomph. So card companies started taking the lettering, numbers, logos etc and creating multi colored patch cards that collectors ate up like candy. This card came out of one of Fleer's many one off brands Sweet Sigs. What I love about this card is that each patch is multi colored with at least two colors per patch. TMac and Iverson are on the front of the card while KG and Baron Davis are on the back. Of course at the time KG, T-Mac and Iverson were still big time heavy hobby hitters and Baron Davis wasn't that bad of a 4th option either. I haven't seen too many of these cards, and there were only 35 copies made. So excellent player selection, relative scarcity and nice patches get this card #92 on the countdown.
