22. NIKE Poster Cards Type 2 290875 - 290888

 290875 CLARK (Will Clark)  1989

the 1989 World Series featured Oakland and Mark McGwire vs San Francisco and Will Clark. It was known as the Battle of the Bay. We will all remember the earthquake that took place during this series. Nike posters of Clark and McGwire, when joined on edge, show the SF/Oakland Bay Bridge.

They appear in the Sept 1989 catalog but appear at the border of 883 Jordan "MVP" (1988) and Gretzky "Hockey Night in CA" (1989) so they could go either way.
