eBay Find – 1990 K-Mart Baseball Superstars

1990_topp_kmart_superstarsI don’t remember buying this set as a 16-year old teenager, although I might have. I do remember having quite a few of these cards from the set in my personal collections back in the day. Players like Will Clark (who I still collect to this day), Ryne Sandberg, Tony Gwynn, Kevin Mitchell, Craig Biggio, Doc Gooden, Don Mattingly, Wade Boggs, Cal Ripken, Kirby Puckett, Bret Saberhagen, Fred McGriff, and Mark McGwire were in my personal collections. The K-Mart Baseball Superstars 33-card set was produced by Topps and distributed at K-Mart stores. The cards have a super glossy finish with white borders on the front. The backs are unfinished with a red border and the usual biographical information and stats you find on most cards. The set features 11 cards of players/manager that are in the Hall of Fame, Ryne Sandberg, Ozzie Smith, Tony Gwynn, Craig Biggio, Wade Boggs, Cal Ripken, Kirby Puckett, Rickey Henderson, Nolan Ryan, and Dennis Eckersley.
