1996 Topps Florida Marlins Team Set

1996 Topps Florida Marlins Team Set

I am cruising right along as I work to collect every Topps-issued Marlins team set issued during the team’s history.

This is the first ‘small’ set, as it features much fewer cards than the team sets issued in 1993, 1994, and 1995.

What also stands out to this Marlins’ fan is that while this set was the one issued prior to the team’s 1997 World Series title, the players included in the set hardly remind me of the roster that would win it all just one year later…

On to the cards:

My favorite card from the set? 

Of course my favorite card from the set is the one that features Andre Dawson.  Duh…

This was The Hawk’s final major league season.  I really like that Topps used a photo of Andre at Wrigley Field for this final card.
