1985 All-Star Game Program Insert

The old mid-80s All-Star game insert "cards". This is a tiny thing, possibly bigger than Topps Micro. I'll have to compare then.

Do you collect these for your PCs of players or Team sets? I have the 1984 and 1986 Strawberry one, too. They seemed to be a thing from 1981 to 1986 (per searching Trading Card Database). So, it's nice to have all three Darryl Strawberry appearances in this "oddball" "set".


Thanks for stopping by.

A couple of comments lead me to take this photograph which I hope illustrates the size of this card. they are:

Topps Micro, All-Star Insert, Topps Mini Leaders, Donruss standard baseball card.

  1. The Reds are on my want lists and I have a handful. They are bigger than the micro cards, but not by much. I can't figure out why some players were included, though.

  2. I have the 1984 All-Star Game Program insert of Gwynn. Looks like I'll need to track down his 1985 card though.

  3. I believe I have a Sandberg one of those. They are very tiny.
    That's a nice picture of Strawberry... at what looks like a park... and not the baseball kind. Odd.

    1. Looks like he is on a high school field, with one of the teenagers walking by.
      Would be curious to see this next to a standard size card.
