Quick Look: 1995 Fleer Derek Jeter ERROR. Great ‘Under the radar’ early card of the Yankee captain!

18 May

I’m not quite sure when this variety was discovered but I do know that the majority of post 1991, non-Topps-issued variations are the middle children of the error card family. Doesn’t matter who they depict or how rare they are, they just don’t seem to warrant that “must have” feeling among variation collectors. My first in a short sub-series of posts focusing on mid-to-late 1990’s variations should challenge that idea as it goes to an early card of New York Yankees captain, Derek Jeter.

Jeter’s 1995 Fleer Major League Prospects insert -his first fleer issue or ‘FFC’ for those that still care about that sort of thing- can be found with or without Fleer’s copyright info and MLB logos on back. Unfortunately, I don’t have a large enough sampling to gauge the scarcity of either type, though, I’ve only seen 2 copies of the missing info version to about a dozen or so of the corrected type.

    I’ve got 1 copy of this card and it’s missing the Fleer/MLB/copyright info.

    There were 12 of this card on comc.com and only 1 had the variation.

    Now 6 of the 11 on COMC are missing the copyright info.

    I have a 2003 fleer focus jersey edition #1 derek jeter card. The thing is i have an error on it and nobody will put any value on it and i cant find any information pertaining to it. The front of the card is Derek Jeter but the back of the card is the #81 Adam Dunn stats( the back of the 81 card). Have you ever heard of this error card?

      Just a wrong back. Not common but hardly desirable to most. A jeter collector would definitely want it but doubtful with much enthusiasm. They aren’t variations, just production/print mistakes so to many they are lesser than.
