Pack Break: 2006-07 Fleer x3

Same as with the Victory packs, I want to combine the three of them into a single post. I've gotten a few packs of this in the past, and like Victory it's one of the lower-end releases, so I couldn't expect much.

Here is one of the base cards:

Pretty simple design, I like the fact that there isn't a UD logo. I also like the white border and how the image interrupts that border in the middle of the card. Nothing too fancy, it's got all the pertinent information and even the team logo. The rest are as follows:

Marian Hossa
Jarret Stoll
Patrice Bergeron
Steve Bernier
Pascal Leclaire
Ilya Kovalchuk
Dany Heatley
Joni Pitkanen
Mike Modano
Roberto Luongo
Curtis Joseph
Fredrik Modin
Vincent Lecavalier
Darcy Tucker
Antoine Vermette
Ryan Kesler
Richard Zednik
Petr Prucha
Martin Havlat
Pierre Turgeon
Peter Forsberg
Miikka Kiprusoff
Erik Cole
Slava Kozlov
Jim Slater
Mike Ribiero

Now onto the inserts:

These hockey headline cards a kind of a cool idea, especially how they focus on a specific moment. I really like the design of these inserts, especially the color image on a black and white background. 

These Total-O cards are average at best. One thing I do like is the golden ice looking pattern inside of the O and the way the outer parts of the card are dull while the rest is glossy. 

The speed machine cards are kind of cool with the trailing flames and the blur effect to add the illusion of speed. This card is just horrible though, would it have been that hard to leave the Avs logo there?

  1. Once UD bought Fleer - it became a version of Victory and was not Fleer anymore.
