1991 WUAB McDonalds Tribe Kids Fan Club Cards

When I wrote my birthday post, I searched for player images to go with each player. I found an image for Tony Perezchica and instantly became intrigued. You see, the image was of a card that I am pretty sure I had not come across yet - or if I had, I sure long forgot about it.

The image was that of the 1991 WUAB/McDonald's Tribe Kids Fan Club set. After a quick search on eBay, I found the complete set and scarfed it up.

These are an odd size: 2-7/8" x 4-1/4" But, they are a VERY cool addition to my Tribecards collection! I also grabbed a 1993 set, which I will post about on another day.

The cards feature the "Tribe Kids Fan Club" logo in the upper left. The player image, large and slightly off-center for effect, if surrounded by a red border. Five blue diamonds adorn the lower left side of the card while the player's name, number, and the McDonald's logo finish out the bottom. The backs feature logos and stats, appearing very much like a Topps card with all the info.

Like I said, I don't believe I've seen these before. I am so glad I did the birthday post. I might not have known these were even a thing!

  1. Hello David. I've come across your blog while looking up cards from my collection when I was a kid. I've noticed that you have the 1991 set. I also have some cards from the same set but they look different from yours. I'm wondering if they made different sets during the '91 season.
