Default Mystery 1988 Topps Contest Card

In putting together Topps master sets, I always include pack-inserted contest/drawing cards.

I had never seen this one until today - It is clearly from 1988, but the only contest cards I've seen from 1988 Topps are those ones for the glossy sets.

Does anyone know where this may have been pulled?

Pretty sure it comes from 1988 Topps Mini Leaders.

That makes sense - I checked my 1986 Mini League Leaders set and I have an almost identical spring training insert card that's blue instead of yellow.

I'll know for sure when it gets here.

Adding the same answer, looks like a leaders contest card.
