A piece of nostalgia is returning, as Upper Deck is dusting off the Fleer Ultra line for a new series of X-Men trading cards. A number of participating artists have confirmed the new series, even showing their art from the cards.
FLEER ULTRA X-MEN! Brand-new trading cards in July with a 10-card 90s-style sunset by me! Here’s #Wolverine to whet your appetite. As a guy who got into comics b/c of @JimLee ‘s X-Men, you KNOW this meant a lot to me.?? #xmen #fleer #marvel #tradingcards #davidnakayama pic.twitter.com/pHOFEriyWT— David Nakayama (@DavidNakayama) April 23, 2018
Finally got the go ahead to show this! I've had it, and the other four, under wraps since Sept of last year, lol. Fleer Ultra X-Men art, 1 of 5: Onslaught! I'll post the rest over the next bit, with a photo of the all original art at the end :) @UpperDeckEnt @marvel #90s #xmen pic.twitter.com/U7j0TEaTzH— Meghan (@MeghanHetrick) April 19, 2018
In the early to mid-1990s, Fleer did several series of Marvel-related card sets including a higher-end set of "Fleer Ultra" cards for the X-Men.
