The Daily: 1984 Fleer Update Kirby Puckett
Born March 14, 1960, Kirby Puckett would go on to become one of the best and most beloved baseball stars of his generation. A two-time World Series Champion and ten-time All-Star, Puckett always seemed to look like he was playing hard or having fun. Usually, it was a mix of both.
In case you need a dose of Puckett today, here’s a tribute video that was shown during a Metrodome celebration following his retirement in 1996. You might want to grab a tissue, even if you are wiping that tear with a smile on your face.
1984 Fleer Update Baseball is one of the few sets from the 1980s to hold strong values over the years. It’s a classic release that also has the first Roger Clemens card that wasn’t a minor league issue. The print run was low for the era as well, which is another factor in its popularity beyond its star power.
