Old School Hits: 1999 Fleer Mystique Feel the Game

beltreRandomly inserted into packs of 1999 Fleer Mystique was one of the earliest game-used sets to hit the hobby known as Feel the Game. The checklist was small but potent (for the time) and featured a mixture of established stars and the hottest newcomers. These cards were great for a variety of reasons. First, jersey swatches were considerable bigger than the tiny ones we’ve been accustomed to with game-used. Secondly, there a mixture of not only jersey pieces but batting gloves and in this particular case, a shoe! These made for some great looking pieces. See for yourself! Third, a picture of the actual item from which the swatch was taken was placed on the back of each card.

  1. I really like that they put a photo of the cut up item on the back. It makes it a little more real that way. And is that hand numbered? Pretty cool…

  2. Where have all the shoe cards gone?
