1971 Fleer World Series Baseball Cards
The 1971 Fleer World Series Baseball Card Set was originally issued with 68 standard size cards, outlining each of the past World Series from 1903 to 1970. The cards are horizontally oriented, and feature the artwork of Robert Laughlin on the front, and a short essay in black print on the back.
The 1971 Fleer World Series Baseball Card Set was printed intermittently, up until 1980, with additional cards featuring the World Series, played from 1971 to 1977.. These additional 7 cards are numbered #69 to #75, bringing the total number of cards in the set up to 75. These short-printed cards were printed in far fewer numbers and can easily cost as much as the 68-card standard set.
The 1971 Fleer World Series cards have the same style of artwork on the cards published the previous season, but with different cartoon drawings. The easiest way to distinguish the 1971 Fleer cards is the black print on the reverse, compared to the blue print on the backs of the 1970 cards.
