Old School Hits: 2000 Fleer Tradition Glossy Lumberjacks

In 2000, Fleer produced a glossy edition of their Tradition set, available only as a factory set. The glossy set is comprised of 500 cards, the last 50 of which are shortprinted rookies limited to 1,000 copies (including Barry Zito, Juan Pierre, and Xavier Nady). Each factory set came with the 450 cards from the short set, 5 rookies, and a game-used card from a set called Lumberjacks.

There are 45 cards in the Lumberjacks set, all with various print runs. This Roberto Alomar card is serially numbered 588/627 on the back. Here is a scan:

This is the same back Fleer used for their autographed cards at the time. The serial numbering is etched onto the left side of the card, but just like Topps did with their Gold Label and Topps Stars sets the previous year, they did not color in the numbers, making them difficult to read. These factory sets can be found in eBay stores for anywhere between $25-60.
