1991FleerProVisionMikeGreenwellI know guys who have been out of the collecting game for almost two decades. But all of them remember one thing about Mike Greenwell — his 1991 Fleer Pro Vision card. Greenwell was a stud for the Red Sox in the late 80s and early 90s. By now everyone knows how Greenwell feels about Jose Canseco’s MVP in 1988. But regardless of his on-field accomplishments, this 1991 card remains his cardboard legacy. I recently added this image to my on-going Red Sox Collection project. I’ve still got about 1,500 cards to add, many more to scan, but soon enough I’ll be making a call to all collectors to help fill the gaps.
