Completely Red: 2000 Fleer Ultra

All the 'futuristic' stuff in the 20th century seemed to have a '2000' tag on it. Things like the Hoover Vacuum 2000, or the Ronco Turnip Twaddler 2000 conveyed that the product was advanced beyond the current era. Then once the actual year 2000 came, well, hey, it's just another year. So I suppose Fleer decided to shoot back a couple decades with a design that screams, to me, 'it's 1981 and here's what the future of fonts looks like'. By the way, despite my mocking, I really like it.

Bonus: Short Print Gookie!
