Actual Stats on the Back: 1987 Fleer

1987 Fleer #25 Mookie Wilson


What's this stat back all about?

Bomb Pop?

Apparently,the last Thursday in June is National Bomb Pop Day. I assume you are NOT allowed to celebrate this cherished event on airplanes or on a tour of the White House!

It's close but not quite right. I'd rather have an ice cream sandwich!

Globetrotters?


Love the Globetrotters. The bucket of confetti never gets old. They were on Gilligan's Island!


Did you know Fergie Jenkins played with the Globetrotters in the offeason?
Fleer definitely stole the color scheme from the Globetrotters, not the Bomb Pop. Now what about those fancy boxes at the bottom of the card. Looks familiar.


Heat Maps?



Oh yea! Fleer was so ahead of it's time. ESPN's Mark Simon may be obsessed with these. If you like them or just want to be reminded about how bad the Mets hit, then be sure to follow him on twitter @msimonespn.




What? No tidbits this year, Fleer? If you feel that you must have some Mookie bits, try his autobiography. You can buy it here.
