The 1990 Fleer Update set was issued in the fall of 1990 and showcased players who had been traded during (or shortly before) the season, and rookies who had made some sort of impact during the season but didn’t already have a solo card in the base 1990 Fleer set.

As in years past, the entire 132-card update issue was available only as a complete box set, usually from hobby dealers. Although the 1990 Fleer Update set was produced in large numbers, similar to the base set and many other issues of the time, it nevertheless features a few Hall of Famers, including Lee Smith, Gary Carter, Dave Winfield, and Nolan Ryan.

1990 Fleer Update Frank Thomas

Most notably, the set features the first Fleer card of Chicago White Sox legend and Hall of Famer Frank Thomas (though Thomas had rookie cards from other manufacturers issued during the season).

Today, the complete set can usually be found for affordable prices, though top-grade copies of the Thomas rookie can bring decent money.
