1986 Topps Mini Leaders

From shiny and new to tiny and old - that's how we roll here at APTBNL. Here's a pack of 1986 Topps minis, featuring 6 Picture Cards and one card without a picture offering the owner a chance to win a trip to Spring Training in 1987.

21 - Lonnie Smith (The design, of course, is based on the team leaders cards from the base set of the same year.)

5 - Dwight Evans

54 - Juan Samuel (Samuel finished 5th in the NL in steals with 53 in 1985.)

11 - Carlton Fisk (The Sox had some strange uniforms during this era. I don't think of Carlton Fisk as one of the all-time great sluggers, but he did hit 37 HRs in '85.)

45 - Orel Hershiser (This was before Orel's scoreless innings streak. All he did in 1985 was pitch 5 shutouts with a 2.03 ERA - which was only good for third best in each category.)

35 - Jimmy Key

In my totally anecdotal experience (I've opened a lot of these, and I've talked to some others who've collected them), you scored in this pack. The Fisk card seems to be the toughest card in the set to pull for some reason.
