1981 Fleer

 In 1981, Fleer released a large baseball set featuring current players for the 1st time in 18 years. There are 660 cards in 1981 Fleer using the now standard 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 (inches) sized cards. The fronts of these cards contain a full color photograph inside a rounded border that is color coded per team. The players name and position are located at the bottom of the card along with a cartoon baseball with the teams name inside. The backs of these cards are printed in black, grey and yellow ink on white stock and have full player stats. The players batting average or earned run average is located in a circle in the upper right. The cards are numbered in team order of the previous seasons finish. There were numerous print errors during the first print runs that were corrected creating many variations.
