The photography for the 82 fleer set was actually very good, at least partly.

One of the guys who was a freelance photographer and sold photos to Fleer that year was a semi regular customer at the same card shop I hung out at. I got to see some photos from the same series in person and they were really good. I should have written his name down and tried to buy a couple prints.
It was cool going through a bunch of cards fresh out of the packs while he pointed out which ones were his. ( One of the very few times I opened cards in the shop, I almost always wait till I get home. )

Fleers printing and production in 82 though..... Not as good as the photos. If you look at a bunch of them you can see the tape they used to hold the negatives on either the original or the mask.
