1998 Fleer Metal Universe Cubs

The 1998 version of Metal Universe shrunk by 30 cards, going from 250 to 220.  The number of Cubs dropped too, down to seven.

The backgrounds remained funky.  Animals were included on several.  The best would be Ryne Sandberg's card.  It shows a rhino chasing Ryno.

Fleer also did a semi-update thing, showing newly acquired players, but wearing the uniform of their previous team.  That's why we have a Phillie and an Expo mixed in with the Cubs


  1. Kudos to Fleer for including the rhinoceros on that card.

  2. Yes, definitely one of my favorite Ryno cards!
