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.
