Cards You’ve Never Seen: 1990 Upper Deck No Position On Front Promos/Proofs

29 Apr

Take a look at this interesting print ad for 1990 Upper Deck baseball. In the foreground are a handful of cards, oddly enough, all from the 101-199 sequence (the missing copyright affected sequence), showing no position in the upper left corner box. Ken Griffey Jr, Bo Jackson, Barry Larkin among other highly collected players. I can only imagine what kind of money these likely-unproduced variations would bring today. What’s also interesting is that the cards in Reggie Jackson’s hand appear to be printed with their positions.

        So did that guy ever send you pics of the Shaq rookies missing the gold foil?

    I have a number of these proof cards that I got directly from a former Upper Deck Exec.
    Also really interesting is that the 1990 Upper Deck Low Series Boxes all show pictures of these kinds of cards too. They all have no player position in the gray box. Additionally, all of the cards on the box have the player’s name printed on the bottom right hand side of the card, while the regular issued cards have the name on the bottom left hand side. All of the cards pictured are also from the 101-200 sequence with some major stars like Griffey, Mattingly and Bo Jackson.

      Hi Lee, I’ve seen your listings. Really great stuff! Would love to open up that 1990 Hockey test pack in the MLB packaging!
