Highlighted by one of the best autograph checklists ever for a baseball card set, 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game Baseball looks to the game’s past. The set is also notable for having one of the first Mickey Mantle memorabilia cards.
2000 Baseball Cards
In the year 2000, the Arizona Diamondbacks prevented the New York Yankees from winning their fourth consecutive championship. Despite the significance of the new millennium, baseball card companies did not get the memo. A rookie class that did not live up to their expectations, combined with only a few strong products, relegated much of the 2000 baseball card products to the bargain bin. Unless collectors are after something specific, like Miguel Cabrera rookie cards, or a cheap box break, it is best to look to another year.
Although it was a down year, not all the products were duds. 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game features one of the most impressive autograph lineups of all-time. Also, rookie cards of Miguel Cabrera are the top option for collectors. To a lesser extent, Johan Santana, Roy Oswalt, Adrian Gonzalez and Barry Zito round out the list of other popular rookie cards.
