Fleer Game Time Football is Ready to Take the Field

MT. LAUREL, N.J. - JUNE 18, 2001 - The NFL season has yet to begin, but Fleer is already tackling the competition with 2001 Fleer Game Time NFL. This set is full of the hard-hitting action collectors have come to expect from Fleer Trading Cards.

        The basic card set consists of 150 cards, including 110 regular cards along with 40 Next Game cards that feature the top 40 up and coming rookies from the 2001 NFL Draft. There are also parallels of the basic set named Game Time Extra (110 cards - 1:8 packs) and Next Game Extra (40 cards numbered to 201).

        Although Fleer Game Time is packed with plenty of action, the real highlight of the set is Fame Time, an insert set featuring memorabilia cards from the likes of Joe Montana, Walter Payton, and Lawrence Taylor. The Fame Time Autographed parallel contains signatures from guys like John Unitas, Roger Staubach and Terry Bradshaw (all numbered to 25).

"Game Time features many new and exciting inserts," said Fleer spokesman Joshua Perlman. "Fame Time, which is the highlight of the set, contains an amazing all-star line-up of football greats."

        The game-used memorabilia inserts continue with Game Time Uniformity, an insert set consisting of player worn uniform cards of Donovan McNabb, Dan Marino, Marshall Faulk, Isaac Bruce, Marvin Harrison and more.

        Fleer is breaking new ground in Game Time with In the Zone, which contains actual pieces of end-zone pylon used during the 2000 season at Indy's RCA Dome. Some of the players featured are Edgerrin James, Peyton Manning and Daunte Culpepper.

        Fleer Game Time is also full of amazing inserts such as Double Trouble, Eleven-Up and Crunch Time. All inserts feature innovative designs and spectacular photography that will blow collectors away.
