Card #78: 1992 Bowman #140

YEAR: 1992
BRAND: Bowman
SET: Bowman
TEAM: Cleveland Indians

Nice flat-top, Sandy.  In 1992 Bowman made a big comeback.  This set is still revered to this day for featuring a number of high-profile rookie cards.  Obviously Mike Piazza, Mariano Rivera, and others were the big stars.  It would not have been as successful though if the brand had not cut its production significantly.  Bowman was the very definition of an over-produced set through 1991 and they corrected that with this set.  The glossy stock and premium photography help too.  The Sandy Alomar is nothing to write home about, but this was a great set.
