1991 Fleer, Les Lancaster
#424 Les Lancaster
This is the third and final card that I got signed by the Souix City Explorers manager in June. You can see the first two here and here. Les has a cool looking signature. He makes a big L and then writes es and ancaster next to it.
The 1991 Fleer set was one of the weirder sets that I have ever seen just because of the bright yellow borders. These are some loud cards. But, for some reason, I have always liked them. For one, they are easy to spot. Plus, they had full color backs that had a face shot of the player. Only Upper Deck had pictures on the backs before this (and maybe 1990 Leaf). But, these had a little more color than any Upper Deck back up to that point and they were cheaper than Upper Deck. So this set from Fleer kind of put them ahead of Topps and Donruss, at least technilogically.
