Quick Look: 1991-92 Fleer All-Star Pink & Yellow Variations

8 Jun

1991-92 Fleer Basketball is not a set that I’ve devoted much time to, but I recently purchased a 3200 count box in effort to find a mint Larry Johnson rookie (yeah, I know). While sorting through the cards, I found a large chunk of the series 1 All-Star issues and noticed that several can be found in two varieties: 1st variety has a pink background behind the text on back (common), the 2nd variety has a yellow background behind the text on back (scarcer). As of this post, I have not been able to confirm that every player is affected by this variation.

    are these possibly a variation by which pack type they were pulled from? i used to buy mainly the jumbo cello packs (for the rookie sensations) and i have a ton of yellow backs. going through my commons you would think the pink is the scarce type.

      Agreed, I think yellow is the common and pink is the scarce. i just went through all of the Series 1 AS cards on COMC and all were yellow except for one pink Malone (most had 20+ samples). It does look like there is another variation on at least the yellow backs with two different fonts on the back, one bolded and one not.

    Have you been able to confirm a Dominique Wilkins All Star Pink Back?
