1991 Starting Lineup Cubs

The shrinkage trend that started in 1990, seeing the set size halved, continued in 1991.  This time the set went from 86 players to just 46.  That means in two years, 75% of the set disappeared, going from 168 to 46.  Yikes.

The cards returned to a more traditional Starting Lineup look, with a colorful border and the red stripes and Starting Lineup logo.  Yellow must have been the color of 1991 because Fleer used the same bright shade on their cards.

Despite a small set size of 46 players + nine more in the extended set, the Cubs were well represented with five cards. Almost half the MLB teams had either no players or just one, so netting five is awesome.
