2012-13 Fleer Retro BasketballBrand: Fleer
After creating lots of buzz and a surge on the secondary market with its first go around, 2012-13 Fleer Retro Basketball heads back to the old school. Sticking with a distinctly 90s theme, the release once again brings back several familiar designs and names.
Every 2012-13 Fleer Retro Basketball hobby box promises six autographs per box, three in each ten-pack mini box. This year, the signature focus is on the Fresh Ink name, giving collectors different designs from the previous set's Autographics.
However, the big draw are the resurrected inserts, many of which have become some of the most valuable and coveted in the modern hobby. Each 2012-13 Fleer Retro Basketball box boasts four of the following:
- E/X Essential Credentials
- Flair Legacy Row 1
- Flair Legacy Row 0
- Fleer Molten Metal
- Fleer Tradition Playmakers Theatre
- Fleer Tradition Thrill Seekers
- Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems
- Mystique Raise the Roof
- Ultra Court Masters
- Ultra Platinum Medallion
- Ultra Starring Role
- Z-Force Big Men on Court
- Z-Force Rave
- Z-Force Super Rave
As with last year, collectors can expect each of these individual insert sets to be relatively rare.
The Lucky 13 name returns as well with one falling every box. EX inserts are inserted two per box.
The 2012-13 Fleer Retro Basketball set consists of 80 cards: 50 base cards and 30 Rookie Sensations (1:3 packs) that use the 1991-92 design.
Estimated Release Date: 6/13
Product Configuration: 20 packs per box, 5 cards per pack
Price Point: High-End Basketball Card
