Insert Set Flashback: 1997-98 Fleer Key Ingredients

The Set:
1997-98 Fleer Key Ingredients

Set Odds:
1 in 2 series one retail packs

Key Cards:
Shaquille O’Neal $1.50
Scottie Pippen $1.00

Why I Like It:
I actually didn’t know this set existed until recently, but its metallic looking finish jumped out at me.  These players are the ‘Keys’ to their teams, and each card has an identical background of the paint which is, as with several inserts sets from the late 90s, not a flat card.  There’s a 3D type effect that makes the player stand out against the background.  Fleer also produced a Gold version of these that were inserted at 1 in 18 packs.

I am putting the regular set together, and have just a few more cards I need to finish it.  You can find the ones I need on my Insert Wantlists page.  Let me know if you have any of the remaining cards there.  I have lots to trade. You can leave a comment or contact me at
