29. NIKE Poster Cards Type 4 290883 - 290887

Finishing off the known Type 4 Nike poster cards are Jordan's iconic "MVP", Double Trouble", Gretzky's "I Love LA" and Anthony Carters "Serious Hang Time"

290883 MVP   (Jordan)   1988

1988 Slam Dunk championship. Although reprinted several times this poster card can be dated from 1988 since we know it is from the 1988 Slam dunk championship vs Dominique Wilkins. The duel between Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins had a little bit of everything. The two best dunkers of the era going head-to-head. Jordan closed the show with this picture perfect free throw line dunk, which clinched the win and will go down as his defining slam.

290984 Double Trouble   1988/89

In the  1987 draft, when the team took Linebacker Shane Conlan with their first pick, then got #2 overall pick, Linebacker Cornelius Bennett, from Indianapolis when he refused to sign with the Colts. Multiple sites date this poster as 1987 (with no evidence) although numerically it looks like the poster card  could be 1988 or 1989.   It appears in the 1989 catalog but not the catalog from Sept 1988

 290885 I Love LA  (Gretzky)  1989

Same as the 290886 Hockey night in CA Type 2 poster. Worthpoint dates this poster as 1989.

290886 Serious Hang Time  (Anthony Carter)  1989

Vikings wide receiver about to make a grab.
