Wax Attack: 2003 Fleer Tradition

Here is the second installment of my recent wax pack opening frenzy this holiday season. Again, this is a set I am not too familiar with. It is Fleer's 2003 Baseball set called Fleer Tradition. It's design is a homage to Fleer's very first Baseball card set from 1963. See Sandy Koufax's card from the '63 set above. I didn't get a lot out of this pack except for Soriano and Sheffield's All-Star cards. Fortunately, I did get one Dodger card (below) of once highly touted prospect Alfredo Gonzalez. At least that's what the card says on the back.
"At 3 minor league stops (in 2002), Alfredo posted a stunning 1.89 ERA in 76 relief innings."
Arm problems while in the minors slowed his rapid ascent. He recently signed as a free agent with the Texas Rangers.
Other cards in the pack include Eric Bruntlett, journeyman Al Martin, hurler Mark Redman, Chipper Jones/ Hank Blalock Interleague Play card, Horacio Ramirez, Ryan Franklin and one of my favorites Dmitri Young.
