1986 Fleer

The 1986 Fleer set consists of 660-card standard-size cards. The card fronts feature a color player photograph surrounded by a dark blue border (resulting in extremely condition sensitive cards commonly found with chipped edges). The players name is inside and oval color bar located along the bottom with the players position just under the players name. The player cards are alphabetized within team and the teams are ordered by their 1985 season finish and won-lost record. The team logo is located at the bottom along side the players name. The backs do not have the black and white player photograph as in previous years. The backs include player bio and stats information and are printed in black and yellow on white card stock.

Subsets include Highlight cards (HL) cards 626-643, Major League Prospects (MLP) cards 644-653 and Team Checklists (CL). This set was issued with team logo stickers.
