Product Details

User Rating:

Don't let the value (or lack thereof) of 1990 Bowman Baseball fool you. The set has a clean design and one of the strongest checklists of the year as far as rookie cards go.

The checklist is on the big side, chiming in at 528 cards. As you'd expect, it has all the big names. But that's to be expected. What makes the checklist stronger than most other 1990 sets is the rookies. Frank Thomas leads the way. However, there are lots of other names that had their time in the sun before injuries, steroids and time kicked in. Juan Gonzalez, Mo Vaughn and Sammy Sosa are some of the names that fall under this category.

Most of the card front real estate is dedicated to the player photo. There's a white border with a thin rainbow frame. The only other elements are a small Bowman logo on top and a tiny name plate at the bottom. Backs are blue with stats that look at the player's performance versus specific teams. The card stock is very dull, similar to the base Topps sets from the era.

It's also worth noting that Topps ditched the over-sized format of 1989 Bowman Baseball and went with standard card dimensions.

Each pack also has one Art Card insert done by Craig Pursley. These also doubled as sweepstakes cards.  Over-sized versions of the cards can also be found. Measuring 11" by 14", they were given as prizes and made available to shops.

Because of the massive production and drop-off of many of the key rookies, there isn't much value in 1990 Bowman Baseball. The same can be said for most of the sets of the era as well.

The exception is the 1990 Bowman Tiffany box set. Reported to have a print run of 10,000 copies, it's a parallel version of sorts done on a brighter glossy card stock. 1990 Bowman Tiffany cards are not available in packs, just as a factory set.

1990 Bowman Baseball boxes can be found in three configurations. Basic wax boxes have 36 packs of 15 cards. Jumbo boxes come with 24 packs of 31 cards. The largest are rack boxes that have 24 packs of 39 cards.

Ryan is a former member of The Cardboard Connection Writing Staff.   His collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.

User Reviews

  1. To me the 1990 Bowman set was leaps and bounds better than the 1990 melted crayon inspired Topps release. Its ultra cheap and a good way to get a classic looking card of many HOF and star players from that era.
