1994 Fleer Extra Bases #297
Card Review: 3.3 A small part of me really likes the novelty of over-sized cards. But a much larger part of me is very much annoyed by the dilemma they create in how to store them. As a young kid I loved them, and that's demographic I'm sure Fleer was going for, so I'm not really trying to complain. In fairness to over-sized cards, the '86 Donruss All-Star is one of my all-time favorite Wallachs. Size aside, this is just sort of a dull and boring card. The front picture quality is well above average, but everything else is pretty boilerplate.
*Unrelated side note. After fighting with my spell check, and subsequently looking it up, I realized I've been spelling "dilemna" wrong my entire life. Even after looking it up, I'm not convinced I wasn't taught to spell it with an "n" and am pretty sure I see it in print with the "n" the vast majority of the time. The "mm" spelling looks bizarre to me.
Number of this card in my collection: 2
