Description

1989 Bowman (produced by Topps) is a 484-card set released July 6th, 1989. Billed as the "Comeback Edition!," 1989 Bowman bears little resemblance to the prospect and rookie-laden brand it would eventually become. John J. Langdon, president of the Topps Company lauded the set. "We will publish our cards around the All-Star break because it allows us to include players that have been traded as well as rookies. And unlike any other card in the market Bowman has statistics on the back of its card that tell, at a glance, how a particular player did against every other team in the league the previous season. The 1989 Topps card has a picture of Nolan Ryan with the Houston Astros but Bowman is the only major set in the country that has Ryan in a Texas uniform." [1]

The set is arranged alphabetically by team's city name starting with the American League then National League.

The design of the set was meant to resemble the 1953 Bowman Color Baseball set, and each card measures 2.5" X 3.75" -- a quarter-inch longer than the post-1957 standard-size trading card. As a result, the cards do not fit into standard-sized 9-pocket sheets, top-loaders, or cardboard set boxes. This lack of compatibility with standard storage supplies hurt sales of the product.

Of the 484 cards in the set, 46 are rookie cards. Notables include Ken Griffey, Jr. Gary Sheffield, Tino Martinez, and John Smoltz.
