Completed Set - 1990 Bowman Sweepstakes

Randomly (I think) inserted into packs of 1990 Bowman, these sweepstakes cards offered you the chance to win an 11x14 lithograph of the image found on the card. Variations were found on all the cards.

Single * and double ** variations.

There are four versions of the Dwight Gooden card: * w/out $110 Thousand Dollars, * w/$110 Thousand Dollars, ** w/out $110 Thousand Dollars, and ** w/$110 Thousand Dollars.

Along with the * and ** Nolan Ryan variations I also have a blank back.
I can't seem to figure out what set this blank back came from. Any help?

I haven't any of the Tiffany cards yet, and thankfully there are no variations in that set.


  1. You can probably compare the relative lightness of the colors on the Ryan and figure out which it is. Usually one version is noticeably brighter.

  2. I'm pretty sure I opened packs of 1990 Bowman... yet I don't remember these sweepstakes cards. Sadly... I'm sure I tossed them to the side and eventually they made their way into the trash. Thirty-plus years later... I want them all back, because these are really cool.

  3. Thanks for showing off the completed set!
