Set: 1991 Topps - Micro

Card: #780 Randy Myers


“ I saw one of these in person in January for the first time- I didn't truly appreciate how tiny these were until then. They are pretty cool though. I almost bought one just for the novelty of it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Too bad the best part of the front is the 40 year logo. ” -KMack

“ Two days recently with micro cards. I actually have this complete set. This is like most Topps base sets. Nothing exciting but nothing really wrong. Plain white border. But I don't like the unusual sizes. I have a special drawer for all my odd sized cards but when all my other cards are in folders it seems like a waste. ” -davidhandberry

“ "Nooooo, you forgot to turn off the mini machine!" "That's ok. We'll just call 'em 'micros' and the suckers will eat those up, too!" "And then we can release them in different colors?" "Now you're getting it." ” -Vvvergeer

“ Reminds me of Micro Machines! ” -carthage44

“ Absolutely zero love for this set. ” -NJDevils

“ I never saw the point of Topps Micro, other than trying to get people to buy another product during the Boom Era. ” -olerud363

“ Calling this set "Micro" is now considered a politically incorrect term. They like to be classified as "Little Cards". ” -YoRicha

“ I love when the USPS does a baseball series of postage stamps, like a few years back with Stargell/Williams/Dimaggio/Doby. But I don't care much for cards the size of postage stamps. ” -kents_stuff

“ Loved this little set back in the day.....love 1991 Topps in general. The level of detail on the cad backs amaze me still. ” -tbshaw

“ always like the base set, never knew there was a mini version before ” -Thunderfoot

“ I was so annoyed at how many cards from my factory set were missing or badly miscut. Not too hard to find replacements online, but shouldn't have been necessary. ” -dilemma19

“ Great set for tiny fingers. ” -vrooomed

“ UGH MICRO CARDS! OK back in the day nice idea to pop into a box of Cracker Jack but to make a FULL set of these things pretty annoying. ” -captkirk42

“ If i buy a pack from the junk era, i guarantee you i will pull a randy myers. I am starting to get into the whole Micro cards ” -parsley24

“ Worst idea. Terrible. Made for 5 year-olds?? ” -cjjt

“ So cute and small! I will still grab any Tiger of these size cards I don't have, but man what a pain to store! Best I can come up with for those that collect this size and try and build the set is the 12 pocket pages that fit late 40s early 50s Bowman Cards and Topps 1951s. ” -rmpaq5
