Topps Action Flats Baseball Figures?
In 1989 and '99 Topps releasde two series of Action Flat figures which were 3-inch figures that came with a foiled Topps card of the featured player. These figures were very cheaply and poorly but they were only sold for 2.99$, so weren't really aimed at the collectors market.
The figs seemed to put in third dimension the players in the same pose that were on the card. But they weren't "real 3Das they were more like the old toy soldiers with just "front" or "back" views.
However these figures never caught on and were discontinued after the second series.
Despite their novelty value, they retailed for $2.95, and lack of "proffessionalism" at the time, they seemed to have gained somewhat of a curiosity value over the years and now sell on the secondary market for between $10-$30.
Not a bad return on a $2.95 investment!
