Card of the Day: 1997 Flair Showcase Row 0 Brett Butler
Flair Showcase was an innovator back in the day. They released the first one of ones, were a three-tier set, and had a fancy, high dollar parallel that gave collectors an incentive to buy the product.
In the late 90s, high dollar parallels weren't very prevalent, but with Row 0, Flair basically started the trend. The cards also introduced some neat technology with their rainbow, sparkly design.
However, Row 0 Legacy Collection was really where the high dollars came in. Numbered to just 100, Legacy Collection was one of the toughest pulls of the era and one of the hardest sets to master.
Today a set numbered to 100 is chump change to finish as some of these sets can have a common of $5 or less.
