i didn't bother with the mini leader cards that topps put out in the late 1980's and into the 90's when they first came out, but i have picked up a few in trades over the past few years and i now appreciate them for what they are: cards featuring dodgers!
i took advantage of an opportunity to add more of them to my collection recently. i was able to acquire the 1990 eddie murray
orel hershiser was also featured in the 1990 mini leaders set
here's some from 1986. these i don't like as much because the design is more along the lines of the team leader subset in 1986 topps, rather than the base design itself.
on to 1987. again, the design is similar but not exactly the same as the flagship set. it's obviously a companion set and not just a miniature duplication. i appreciate that.
1988 is the worst of the bunch, in my opinion. the design has nothing to do with the flagship set, and looks too much like the 1986 minis. i'll keep them anyway.
the 1989 minis incorporated the flagship design, but again were different enough to be interesting. orel hershiser is back, of course,
all cards here were provided courtesy of the chronicles of fuji.
duh. thanks mark!
