2004 Fleer Greats of the Game: Gary Carter

With all of the recent trades and donations, some of my collecting goals have been ignored.   2004 Fleer Greats of the Game is one such set.  In the past 2 months I have only added 5 cards to the set.

However, a recent trade netted me a wonderful addition to the set.

#139, Gary Carter

Thanks to Julie over at A Cracked Bat, this is now resting peacefully in my collection.  Every aspect of this card is appreciated.  From the raised border to the foil name, Fleer put out a great product.  This particular card has Carter in his Expos uniform.  While I would have preferred to see him as a Met, the determination on his face makes up for it.

Carter is one of those players that shows up once a generation.  His talent was immense, but his work ethic and determination allowed him to play beyond his talent level.  Every time I get one of his cards, I am excited.

Thanks for the great card Julie.
