Completely Red: 1983 Fleer Stickers

In ongoing efforts to unseed Topps from the zenith of Little-Pictures-of-Men-in-Baseball-Uniforms Mountain, Fleer put out some sticker sets in the 80's in addition to cards. These were sold in packs with each containing a 12-sticker strip. I'm sure this eased production, but I'd be mad if I bought a pack and it was a gamble as to whether I'd get 12 brand new cards or 12 doubles with no in-between. Of course, the packs were probably fifteen cents or something, so whatever. 

For me, now, they are nice little oddballs in the back of one of my Fleer binders. Decent checklist, too. A Johnny Bench 'farewell' sticker. Tom Seaver. Davey. Two, count 'em TWO, Tom Humes. A sneaky appearance by ex-Red Ray Knight. This'll do.
