“Complete” 1990 Pro Set error , variation and oddity list.

7 Jan

Although there are a bunch of 1990 Pro Set error and variation lists floating around out there, I have found that most are missing a large bit of info (mostly recent discoveries) or as is the usual case, they have incorrect info (i.e. Walter Stanley with #87 on back). I also feel that the popular unconfirmed varieties that may exist are worth noting as well.

So, getting started, I have added the following key:

**** = Very scarce variation and/or promo that is hardly offered for sale.

*** = Scarce variation and/or promo that rarely pop up for sale, usually an early correction or very short-run variety.

** = Scarce variation and/or promo that are rarer than the ‘common’ variations and pop up for sale only occasionally.

* = Slightly tougher to find than a common card, the Johnny Holland NNOB is a good example of this.

No star = Can be found with little searching, usually offered for sale on ebay by a number of sellers at any given time.

Enjoy!

NOTE: Cards 1-30 (Stat leaders, Award Winners, HOFers) can be found with a thick, bold black inking on front or corrected. They can also be found where it appears the gold foil is stamped over the black ink instead of the correctly-opposite way.

NOTE: All cards of the New York Jets can be found with a pink bar/strip on back where the team logo appears above the stats. These are very scarce.

Pro Set football cards are receiving  a heavy amount of collector attention these days. Likely due to a mix of nostalgia experienced by the children of their era (1989-1993, who’re now grown adult collectors) and the staggeringly expensive recent online sales of such previously ‘hidden’ or little-known variations as the Dexter Manley and Lud Denny errors.

This list is complete as of today. Obviously there will be many, many additions to it over time (and I welcome any contributions) and they will be added as they reveal themselves.
