Fun Cards Submission: 1983 Fleer “Superstar Special” Jersey Boys
Paying tribute to the “Superstar Specials” that appeared in Fleer sets from 1983 onward, TWJ contributor Patrick sent over this nice “Jersey Boys” card featuring Angels outfielder (and future Hall of Famer) Mike Trout and Reds third baseman Todd Frazier. Trout hails from Millville, NJ, while Frazier grew up over an hour away in Toms River. They were born about five and a half years apart, so I doubt they ever faced each other in competitions growing up, but the connection is still there. It was great seeing Frazier having so much fun in Minneapolis this year, and I hope he gets to experience that for many years to come.
While he was at it, Patrick had a little fun with one of the 2014 TWJ originals…
Trout is a paid spokeman for Subway, and appears in this hilarious commercial for the restaurant chain:
Patrick’s “improvement” to my card definitely brought a smile to my face. Thanks again for all your great work, Patrick!
