In leu of Fleer shutting their doors(basically) I don't think I would send any NPN's for their products.

FYI- I have an e-mail in to them on this subject(as well as redemptions) Also, after locating a new Fleer Phone # I spoke with a receptionist who knew nothing, and couldn't transfer me to anyone who could help, simply stating "The remaining employee's are VERY busy" try back next week.

So with all the redemptions, and i'd guess angry store owners NPN's are probably not in their list of things to do...IMhO I'd save the time & .45 per entry. Which by the way I am wink.gif

Bob if you don't think this is sound advice feel free to edit accordingly.


My almost updated trade+ site. Looking for Vintage all sports, and nice pieces from teams below PM/email with any offers. Thank You. Also 1990 Topps, and 2003 old logo.
Call someone a dodee buttt in the heat of a debate, banhammer, trying with all your might to pass fakes, or what amounts to fraud..Eh, give em a break, he made a mistake??!!??

I would agree that, at the moment, it looks like you'd probably be wasting money on the postage. As you say, the limited staff that remains at Fleer is probably not even worried about redemptions and even less about NPNs.

We'll probably learn more in the next several days to a week though. Depending on what is said, we'll update all the Fleer NPNs on the site.

When did that happen? I just received two NPN entry prizes back last week, on either Thursday or Friday. It was on a basketball product so I did not pay that much attention. That is a real bummer as I am awaiting resolution of an issue on Greats of the Game. Well at least the good news will be fewer products to chose from this fall. Do you have the story anywhere, Bob?

It all appears to have started last Friday, May 13th. There's still not been an official announcement. However, both SCD and Beckett have had articles on the story. Click here for our discussion about the whole story.

Thanks. Sad news and good all in one. I would rather see less product than more, but I thought Fleer had a pretty good game when compared with some of the others in Baseball and Football. Thanks for the information.

It takes a while. I have not seen anything from UD in a long while. I am not sure if you did the Bowman Sterling address for topps, but usually with topps I get npn items with the real cheap items (bazooka) and the high end products ($29.99 a pack like Bowman Sterling). I just received a Estrada Bat on the Sterling. When you least expect it something will arrive.
