Ultimate Fleer Jambalaya Insert Card Checklist and Set Guide

Ultimate Fleer Jambalaya Insert Card Checklist and Set Guide

Jambalaya is one of the best-known inserts in the hobby today. They debuted to a perfect hobby storm in 1997-98 E-X2001 Basketball. Jambalaya combined a wild design, extreme rarity and a killer checklist that included some guy named Michael Jordan and a youngster named Kobe Bryant.

As time went by, more and more collectors started clamoring for the oddly named inserts, driving prices to almost unheard of levels for cards that have no autographs, memorabilia or ultra-low serial numbers. But when something is inserted 1:720 packs and there are 15 cards in the set, rarity's implied.

Fleer brought Jambalaya back six years later for 2003-04 E-X Basketball and its legendary rookie class. Although a little easier to find, 1:480 packs is still extremely tough. And so it has continued with ensuing Jambalaya insert sets, which have now carried over to other sports, maintaining their rarity, distinct look and popularity.

No matter the year or sport, Jambalaya inserts have a few things in common (besides being valuable). They're all oval-shaped except for 2008-09 Ultra Hockey Jambalaya, which is more like an ice rink. They also have a wavy foil background that adds some flash. Finally, there's the rarity factor. Insertion rates have varied, but nearly all of them are extremely tough.

With Upper Deck's Fleer Retro line, Jambalaya has seen a resurgence. Surrounded by other established insert names from the 1990s, the cards have continued to be one of the brand's focal points.
