1974 Fleer Real Cloth Basketball Patches

     Hello all. Today we have a few firsts for The Pack Rip Cafe. It's the first basketball offering, the  first cloth sticker product, and first 1974 pack.

1974 Fleer Real Cloth Basketball Patches 

Boston Celtics
The Shots #14
Washington Bullets

    As you can see, the gum has really taken its toll on these stickers, the Celtics took the brunt of the damage. The stickers became completely detached from the backing while the Bullets is much better with just a few stains.
The Backs

    The Shots card didn't take any damage.

     The card is 1974 but for some reason the wrapper has 1969 on it. I assume that's when the licence agreement was made but I am not sure. I found a great write up on this set at The Fleer Sticker Project blog that describes the set.

Total Cards/Stickers:
Teams Represented: 2
Rookie Cards:
Sub Sets:
Keepers for Me:
 2 (Celtics and Bullets) Anybody who wants The Shot card can have it, first comment asking for it gets it from the freebie box.

Front Design: 8.5 out of 10  Great team logos.
Back Design:
 5 out of 10 N/A for the stickers, the "Shots" card back is pretty cool.
Player/Team Selection:  9 out of 10 Great, a legendary team and a team that has changed it's name works for me, only thing better would be the Knicks.

FINAL OVERALL RATING: 2 RBI Single up the middle. 2 very cool cards for my team logo collection and being a 1974 product makes a solid hit. The condition keeps it a single.  

Thanks For Reading!
