Old School Box Breaks: 2000 Fleer Gamers Baseball

No rhyme or reason for this box. Bought it on Ebay for $30 shipped and figured it would be a fun rip. 

What To Look For: Well..Game Used Bat cards are inserted a 1:36 packs, so they aren't a guarantee. Autograph Game Used Bat cards are possible too. There's really not much that is "got to have" just a couple of insert sets and parallels.

2000 Fleer Gamers
90 Base Cards
20 Next Gamers (1:3)
10 Fame Game (1:8)

Overall Thoughts: This was a fun break and I think I actually did pretty well! I pulled a Game Used Bat of Carlos Delgado (in a product where game used bats aren't guaranteed) and a 1:144 insert of Cal Ripken! The inserts are nice (love the way the Determined insert looks, also love the gold foil finish of the Extra parallel). All in all SP's of Griffey and Jeter, a Piazza one per box parallel, Ripken and McGwire inserts, a bat, and a super tough Cal. Not too shabby!! Here's pics of the hits!

  1. Fun box break. Gotta love you can grab old school boxes with tons of foil for a little over the price of a blaster box.
