Bill Ripken 1989 Fleer #616A

1989 Fleer is a 660-card set issued in 15-card wax packs, rack packs, and hobby and retail factory sets. Checklist cards (654-660) were printed in two versions: with and without positions listed. Notable rookie cards include: Craig Biggio, Ken Griffey Jr., Randy Johnson, Gary Sheffield, and John Smoltz. The set includes a variety of error cards both uncorrected and corrected. A few variations of the Randy Johnson were made to obscure the Marlboro logo in the background. The Bill Ripken Rick Face card was so popular when it was first discovered, it became the hottest card of 1989. A bunch of versions of the Bill Ripken were made to obscure the obscenity on the bat knob, all of which carry hobby demand.

What’s Not Included in this Checklist:

  • Uncorrected Errors (UERs): These include minor typos on card backs and/or fronts. Since these cards were never corrected, they’re just the standard cards in the set.
  • Blank/Wrong Fronts/Backs: Examples beyond what’s stated are manufacturing scrap and weren’t issued in packs.
