1990 Bowman Art Card Contest

Year: 1990
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Bowman Baseball
Card Type: Contest Insert
Card Number: NNO

If you opened packs of 1990 Bowman, which was slightly better than the oversized 1989 Bowman only because it stored better, you got a ton of these contest inserts.  Well before the days of the internet when you still had to fill out the lines on the back of this card and mail it in.  The prize for this contest was a complete set of the 11 lithographs.  A total of 500 lithograph sets were produced.  250 were given away as prizes and the rest were offered to hobby dealers.  All the lithos are artist signed and numbered.  You can see my Yount litho here.  Seems in that post I may or may not have gotten the total produced wrong.  Back in the day this kind of counted as an insert and while common is still kind of neat.
