    1987 Fleer Brown Backs

    I grab '87 Fleer Glossy sets to rip every now and then. The last few that I've ripped have each had a card in them that seemed to have been printed on brown card stock. The fronts are exactly the same in terms of color and gloss, even the backs are the same in terms of feel, but the color is quite different.

    I posted on Net54 and my friend checked his hand-collated set and found that he had a brown back in it as well. So far, the three cards we know of all appear on the same sheet. But what's weird is that my two are the Glossy type and his seemingly came from a set made out of cards from packs.

    Does anyone else have any of these? I'd love to know if there are any from a different sheet, if the whole set is available, or if this is just the 132 cards on this one sheet?

    I need to dig out my Will Clarks and see what I got. I have a few hundred of these.

    On my Will Clark glossy stash, I found 12-15 that had a less than white back out of the 75-80 I have. I'm seeing some on the non-Glossy too. It's easy to spot from the top.

    Would you mind posting a scan? Clark isn't on the sheet with the 3 previously confirmed Brown backs so I'd love to see one. Thank you very much for checking.
