2001 Fleer Premium A Time for Heroes
Front Design: A clock face contains the team logo, with the set, player, and team names beneath. The player's photo is placed beside the design, with a background pattern that resembles what one might see looking at dirty linoleum tile while intoxicated.
Back Design: The backs repeat the design elements from the front with an explanation of how the player shown is a hero.
Parallels and Similars: None known.
Distribution: Cards were inserted into packs of 2001 Fleer Premium at a rate of 1:20.
Thoughts: I like the use of a clock, since it's not seen on baseball cards as a design element too frequently. I'm not sure what the idea was behind the background, which really does look like a blurry picture of someone's kitchen floor or dated wallpaper.
