1997 Topps Screenplays Cubs

In the 1970's we had the Kelloggs 3-D cards.

Moving ahead to the '80s,  Sportflics \had two or three pictures on the card.

In 1997 Topps really upped the game with a set called Screenplays.

The cards don't scan very well, at least with my new scanner.  This is the lone Cub in the 20-card set, of Sammy Sosa.  Instead of just one or a few pictures, Screenplays show an entire play sequence.  On Sosa's card he is making a diving catch.

Its a modern version of the flip book.  The product must not have done much as Topps didn't put out a second set.


  1. I love all three of these cards. I'm publishing a post later today that features 1970 Kelloggs cards. And I just purchased a complete set of 1997 Screenplays a few weeks ago.

  2. That is one cool card - I have a football card from the mid 1990s like that. I can't believe Topps, Panini, or UD would not give those type of cards another chance after 20 years.
