after a fair amount of searching, i finally picked up a set of 1978 fleer hi gloss stickers. it was a master set, which means that it includes all of the different team logos, as well as the background color variations. yes, apparently there were pink, white, and blue background variations for some of the stickers. for instance, here is a yankees sticker.
now, i know you know all about this release because you read about it over at the fantastic fleer sticker project blog. right? well, i'm still going to show you some of the different stickers. all the teams had at least two different stickers - the city/state name and logo, and the hat logo and team name. here's the twins, for example:
and how about the astros:
cartoon psa character that had a hankering for a hunk of cheese. it's the combination of the hat and the round ball.
and, of course, i have to show the dodgers:
as an aside, i can't tell who is in the field and who is batting, but i am assuming the image is from the 1977 fall classic. if i had to guess, i would say that jim gilliam is in the first base coaches box, and so the dodgers are up to bat. anyone have any better ideas?
