First Look: 2012-13 Fleer Retro basketball cards
Upper Deck is dipping into its Fleer archives once again.
The company unveiled the first looks and product details for the sophomore release of perhaps the biggest hit for the 2011-12 basketball season on Thursday as Fleer Retro will return in June with nods to some of the most popular insert sets of the 1990s.
With six autographs in every box (three per 10-pack mini), Retro also will pack four inserts per box — a new selection of Precious Metal Gems, Flair Legacy, Essential Credentials, Z-Force Rave, Lucky 13 and more.
The standard set will consist of 50 cards, capped by 30 rookies. Meanwhile, the company promises two Fleer EX cards per box, while the rookies (1:3 packs) are in the style of the 1991-92 Rookie Sensation design.
Other inserts among those to be found will be Ultra Platinum Medallions, Fleer Mystique Raise the Roof, Playmakers Theatre, Thrill Seekers, Molten Metal, Starring Role, Court Masters and Z-Force Big Men on Court.

College unis will be a turn-off for many, but the old school designs and old school stars can lure some collectors away from Panini.

Looks like they made some minor changes but people expected a bigger chance which is difficult with a product that is suppose to emulate past fleer products.Hidden Content I ship once a week on Monday or Tuesday and only can check my mail once a week to confirm trades have been received. Please pm me if interested in seeing my FB and BB trade lists.

kind of redundant now, also the pmgs have no backgrounds to them, the original pmgs had a background to them.
