Sterling Sharpe, 1995 Fleer Pro Visions (Football Friday No. 214)


Name: Sterling Sharpe
Team: Green Bay Packers
Position: Wide receiver
Value of card: 7 shards of glass
Key 1994 stat: 116 cuts
Some explanations for this high-concept (cough, cough) illustration:
  • Sharpe is breaking through the glass ceiling after men named Sterling had been held back for decades by people with normal names.
  • Sharpe is jumping from space and shattering the sky because, you know, that makes sense.
  • Sharpe is on a wicked-awesome trip after mistakenly eating the wrong kind of brownies at a music festival.
  • Sharpe is a pawn of an unimaginative artist playing off his last name as an illustrated pun that really doesn't make sense (kind of like the Bust).
