Alan Trammell 1989 Bowman – A Ray Of Light!!!

Alan Trammell 1989 Bowman

The re-release of the Bowman brand in 1989 brought us some of the worst looking cards that the hobby had seen since the very early 1980’s.

The set featured tons of close-up portraits, grainy action shots, and little to no design concept.

Still, every set has a small handful of cards that buck the trend.  Ones that stand out and make you smile.

And for this player collector, the card of Alan Trammell does just that!!

 

A great looking card with a perfect image selection!  YES!!

  1. There were so many opportunities for 1989 Bowman that they didn’t take advantage of. How cool would it have been to have a horizontal card of Rickey Henderson sliding into second base or Cal Ripken diving to stop ball? Since Bowman didn’t come out until mid season they should of had a more RC’s. RC’s of Randy Johnson, Omar Vizquel, Curt Schilling and Deion Sanders would have been welcomed to set as well as a Barry & Bobby Bonds card. The biggest issue with the 1989 Bowman cards was storage. Besides top loaders there was no really good way to store them and pages always left the top two corners exposed letting the card get damaged.

  2. For a very short period some company made an eight panel page to store those cards. I only bought one sheet, so I had to pick my “best” eight to put them in. I still have that page in my binder today!
