Overall a nice break. These Fleer Showcase cards absolutely feel high end, with a thicker card stock and glossy surface. Really nice to hit the Griffey Legacy parallel. With there being only one per box it is always nice to hit a big name. It also doesn’t hurt that I hit a new Pedro card for the PC!
