Insert Set Flashback: 2000-01 Fleer Mystique Player of the Week

The Set:
2000-01 Fleer Mystique Player of the Week

Set Odds:
1 in 5 packs

Key Cards:
Kobe Bryant $5.00
Shaquille O’Neal $2.50

Why I Like It:
There was a gap between 1997 and 2000 where I stopped collecting.  Fleer Mystique was one of the sets that brought me back.  The cards were shiny, beatifully colored, and the insert sets well-designed.  Sadly, the last Mystique set was produced for the 2003-04 season.

Player of the Week featured 15 players who won the weekly award during the 1999-00 season.  The numbers and text on the front of the card are positioned to look like a calendar.  The back of the cards highlight the games that led to the player winning the award.  Fun to look back at a snapshot of that particular season, the first championship season of a Laker 3-peat.
