2013 Topps Baseball Mini-Cards

Greetings!

Hope everyone is staying warm.  Back to the scan folder I go...it's a pack of 2013 Topps Mini!


If I remember right, you had to order these cards from Topps; they weren't sold in stores.  I therefore assume many LCS's went ahead and ordered a box or two in order to sell the packs.  That's how I came across them.  Having unable to resist the call of the Mini, I picked up a pack.  Here's what I got:


#353 – Bud Norris
#402 – Tom Wilhelmsen
#479 – Kelly Johnson
#504 – Michael Bourn

There you go, the same image and design, just smaller.  It may not be so noticeable here, but the scanner did a crappy job with the borders.    


#554 – R.A. Dickey
#643 – Matt Garza
#634 – Drew Smyly

There were 661 cards in the set, mirroring Series 1 and 2.  No cards from Update here, so no chance at a mini-Puig RC.

#573 – Ian Stewart
#24 – Dan Haren
#239 – Ramon Santiago

Well, nothing of importance here.  Here's some backs, but again, it's the same design as the main set:


Fortunately, I had yet to file my 2013 cards when I originally scanned the pack, so I was able to do a comparison between the regular and the mini.  Because for all you know, I just chose 10 cards from the base set to show off:



Anyway, that's the pack.  Enjoy your weekend, everyone...thanks for reading!

Pretty cool stuff.They're not that much smaller than the standard 2013 Topps cards.
