2009 Fathead Tradeables

Set Type: Primary
Card dimensions: 5” x 7”

Additional Information: This set marks the debut of the Fathead Tradeables line.

  1. I’ve never seen these before, and I kind of like the design. Reminds me of something Fleer would have put out.

    • I like them too. I only found out about them because my mom gave my son a bunch of unopened packs of these for Christmas a few years ago. Fathead is still making them — they just released the 2012 Tradeables. I hope to get that checklist up (as well as a sample or two) within the next couple days. I’m holding off (for now) on posting the 2010 & 2011 checklists until I have samples for scanning purposes.

  2. Every so often someone thinks a large-size baseball card will be a commercial success. They never are, are they?

  3. P.S. That said, it _is_ a decent design. And I do have lots of 5×7 cards in my collection…
