Year: 1990

Set: Target Dodgers (Rate)

Card: #442 Leron Lee


“ This a concept I wish every team in every sport did. From what I've read on the card blogs, where the Dodgers are the most popular team, every player in team history got a card in this set, at least those up until 1990. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I really like this set, and wish one like this existed for the Cardinals. ” -switzr1

“ At first I was confused as to why such an obscure Dodger would be in a 1990 Target set. Then I looked up the set and it appears to be a history of the Dodgers of some sort, as there are 1,095 cards in the set. The card isn't the greatest, but the concept for the set seems cool if I am understanding it right. ” -muskie027

“ Love oddball stuff like this. ” -702tpr777

“ Didn't know Target was in the game so early on. ” -carthage44

“ I like oddball cards such as this. It is weird that Target came out with a whole set of over 1,000 cards for the Dodgers and they couldn't make a set for any other teams. ” -davidhandberry

“ Do you know how many cards are in this set ? Over a thousand !!! They are nothing to write home about . Did Target stores actually give them out ? ” -uncaian

“ Interesting set. I like the throwback aspect of it. But the design and back have a lot to be desired. ” -cjjt

“ Never saw these before. Pretty neat. ” -NJDevils

“ I am sure all the Leron Lee Collectors are excited. ” -kirkscards

“ Interesting card. I have to admit that I'm surprised he played over 600 games with the Dodgers over four years. If I you had asked me to name Dodger outfielders in that time I'd have guessed Dusty Baker, Rick Monday, Reggie Smith, Lee Lacy...heck, Manny Mota. I don't think I ever equated Leron Lee with the Dodgers. ” -kents_stuff

“ meh. Not a fan. ” -parsley24

“ Nice Oddball card. ” -captkirk42

“ This is way too cluttered ” -Bargunmaster

Not the best looking card, but the concept is great. Would love to see a company do this for every team.

Aside from the Dodgers, I think the Orioles and Yankees were the only other teams to do sets like this.

Edmonton Oilers did it WAY back for their 10th Anniversarry (more or less) I have the set and it is uplaoded. An update or new set like this would be fantastic. Not sure if the 100th or Centennial set (?) of the Maple Leafs that just came out has every player or not.

The set was distributed at six Dodger home games in 1990. Fans 14 and under were given packets of about 12 sheets, each containing 15 players, so you got about 180 players at each game. (There was one game where you got 13 sheets to get you up to 1095). You had to attend all six games to get a full set.

I feel like there's a Texas Rangers one too.  Maybe not.

Cool info, Andy McCue.  I wondered how they were acquired.  Safe to say most probably didn't make it home in mint condition.
