After researching this question, I have found no indication that these
cards were printed anywhere else but at the company base, which is Mt
Laurel, New Jersy.
"The Mount Laurel, N.J., trading card and collectible company's
reportedly laid off its trading card employees last week and is
exploring options for both its trading card and die-cast divisions."
"The history of Fleer Trading Cards -- the industry's second-oldest
trading card manufacturer -- dates to 1849 when Frank H. Fleer began a
bubble gum business. In 1923, Fleer created its first "trading cards,"
featuring 120 sports celebrities, such as Babe Ruth, to help sell its
gum. Fleer has been producing Major League Baseball licensed trading
cards now since 1981, National Basketball Association cards since 1986
and National Football League cards since 1990."

I don't believe this is correct because on the Cards it says: "1986
Fleer Corp. Phila. 19141 Printed in U.S.A." It is my understanding
that at some point the Fleer Corp. headquarters was in Philadelphia,
PA and I believe they outsourced their card printing (Possibly
somewhere in PA). I would like to know who printed the cards and where
(what factory) so I can hopefully find a picture of the plant.
