Quick Look: 1989 Bowman Textured TV Variations

7 Oct

Since I just recently located one of these, I figured it worth a ‘Quick Look.’ First cataloged by Dick Gilkeson in his 1990 Errors & Variations guide, the Father and Sons subset cards from the return-issue of the Bowman brand can be found in two distinct varieties: One showing a texture to the television set and the other showing a smooth t.v. set. So far, I’ve only come across a handful of examples of each the Griffeys and Ripkens, but have yet to find a Stottlemyres or Alomars “textured” example.

    This was unfortunately the best spot I could find to post this question. Could someone please tell me the exact difference between Jose Canseco’s 1989 Upper Deck #659A and #659B? I’m guessing #659B, the blue logo variation, is the rarer one. Yet, all mine look just as blue as the other AL cards! Is the black variation in fact the rarer? Is it just the bottom ring that is black or blue? Thank you very much!
