Tobie Bayard Mimboe (sometimes referred to as Toby Mimboe), is a retired Cameroonian footballer. He played for several teams, mostly in South America. He started in Cameroonian team Olympic Mvolyé. In his long career, he played in Paraguay for Deportivo Recoleta, Colegiales, Sportivo Luqueño, 12 de Octubre and Cerro Porteño, in Turkey for Gençlerbirliği,[10] in Argentina for San Lorenzo, in Bolivia for The Strongest and in China for Shenyang Haishi. He was capped for the Cameroon national football team, and participated in two African Cup of Nations, in the 1996 African Cup of Nations, and 1998 African Cup of Nations

He is best remembered for his 'Peter Pan' birth certificates. At the 1996 African Cup of Nations he would have been 31 had he used the same documents that he had used in South America which indicated he was born in 1964. When he joined Gençlerbirliği after that tournament, his documents revealed him to be in his twenties (30 June 1974). At the 1998 African Cup of Nations he gave the date of birth as 30 June 1970.

In 2004, Mimboe scored for Sportivo Luqueño in a 1–1 home draw against Club Nacional on 14 March.[11]
