Completely Red: 1995 Fleer Emotion

Nice 200 card set, full-bleed, on double-thick stock, The vibrant photography is nice, but I feel there was a missed opportunity with the cropping. Everything is a bit too close. Still quality, though.

And I don't quite know what's the deal with the large-font descriptors on which they decided. I mean, obviously Reggie Sanders was known for his PLANNING. And Ron Gant for his THUNDER. And when I think of a devastating HEATER, I immediately think of Pete Schourek, I guess in the 90's minimalism wasn't quite a popular consideration, so they needed to fill some space with something XTREME. But these cards would definitely be a lot better without them.
