1987 Boardwalk and Baseball Cubs
This 33-card standard-size set was produced by Topps for distribution by the "Boardwalk and Baseball" Theme Park which was located in Haines City, Florida. The set comes in a custom blue collector box. The full-color fronts are surrounded by a pink and black frame border. The card backs are printed in pink and black on white card stock. The set is subtitled "Top Run Makers." Hence no pitchers are included in the set. There are reports that a parallel version of this set exists without the line between the B's on the front.
