I made a small purchase today

Small as in tiny. Not mini. Micro. I bought the 1991-1993 Topps Micro sets.

I didn’t realize Topps put out complete sets in this form from 1991-1993. I have seen a few singles at times, but I always assumed they were Cracker Jack prizes.

These things are insanely small. I’ve only been through the 1993 set so far. It was opened, and I didn’t realize that until I got home, and it was missing the “Prism” cards that were supposed to be included. That kinda stinks because Ken Griffey Jr. is one of the “Prism” cards. But all the Reds were present, as well as Griffey, Eric Davis, Bo Jackson, and some other non-Reds that I enjoy collecting.

  1. Are you keeping them intact or are you breaking them up for the Reds??? If you break them I would be interested in the Red Sox.

  2. I once had the entire 1992 micro set. Then I sold it. The tininess of the set kind of wore on me.

  3. AdamE, I haven’t decided quite yet whether to get rid of the rest of the set or not. I’m definitely keeping the Reds and a few other players that I like, but the boxes are so tiny it wouldn’t be that difficult to store. If I do end up getting rid of them, the BoSox are yours.
