Dave Winfield 1987 Boardwalk & Baseball

Topps did a lot of ‘side jobs’ in the 1980’s as they designed a lot of co-branded baseball cards for other companies wanting to get in on the collecting craze that took over the country.

Once such project was ‘Boardwalk And Baseball’.  The set was just 33 cards deep and was tagged as ‘Top Run Makers’ as the set featured only the greatest offensive players in the game.

The set was released in 1987 and sold in a factory set style, complete with a custom box.  At the time of release, the set could only be purchased at the ‘Boardwalk And Baseball’ park in Florida.

Among the stars included in the set was Yankees’ superstar, Dave Winfield.

Here is his card from the set:
