1992 Bowman question

31 12 2008

I’m not going to be back everyday again for a little bit longer, but I wanted to ask a question about a card I got for xmas:


It’s one of the Topps Trading Card History cards from this year (well, tomorrow it’ll be from last year, I guess), Cameron Maybin in the style of 1992 Bowman. Quite a boring card.

Now, I was gone from the hobby back in ’92 so I haven’t seen a lot of 1992 Bowmans in their natural state, but I was wondering if the original set featured a bunch of photos taken in someone’s back yard, and if so, did Topps ever reveal this secret location?

Thanks for the help. See you in ’09.

Watch for the Manny, Chipper and Derek Lowe cards among others – either they are hilarious or disturbing.

Yes, there are a lot of photos in ’92 Bowman in various bizarre locations. Not just Manny, Chipper and Lowe, most of the draft picks have bizarre photos.
