The 1990 set was inspired by the 1969 Topps design. Four Mets players were included on three cards:
- 19 Darryl Strawberry
- 22 Howard Johnson
- 36 Mets Rookie Stars (Blaine Beatty, Wally Whitehurst)
In 1990, Baseball Cards Magazine began to publish a series of special issues under the banner “Baseball Cards Presents.” Most of these issues also included cards. One early issue included this Dwight Gooden card patterned after the 1980 Topps set.

I bought a few issues of Baseball Cards here and there, and I subscribed to it for a year or so at the end. I’ve got a bunch of these cards still in sheet form and, naturally, only one Met… The 1993 Eddie Murray. Even though they’re not really worth anything, I’d still like to pick up the rest some day.
I think I subscribed in 1990 and 1991 after buying the magazine on the newsstand when possible in 1989. I found my panels of the 1990 & 1991 cards, but the ones I have from 1989 must have gotten put away somewhere else.
These are the type of boom-era cards I still enjoy – they were common enough that I remember them, but not so common that I’ve seen a million of them in the years since then. 🙂
