37. NIKE Poster Cards Type 3 290908 - 290918

Taking a look at Type 3 poster cards 290908 - 290918 we find baseball players Kirby Puckett, Mark Grace and Nolan Ryan "King of Zing", Bo Jackson teaming with Billy Crystal, basketball players David Robinson "Rookie of the Year" and "Rebound" and MJ's "Reverse Dunk", triathelete Mark Allen and soccer player Andreas Moller.

290216  Relief Hitters (Crystal and Jackson)   1990

Comic Relief USA was a non-profit charity whose mission was to raise funds to help those in need—particularly America's homeless.

290917  Andreas  Moller   1990 POSTER ONLY NO KNOWN NPC

Andreas Möller was a  German  soccer player who played as an attacking midfielderMöller played for Eintracht Frankfurt (1985–87, 1990–92, 2003–04), Borussia Dortmund (1988–90, 1994–2000), Juventus (1992–94), and Schalke 04 (2000–03). Since 290913 was the last poster listed in the June 1990 order form and Moller's poster is listed in the Jan 1991 order form, we can confirm this as a 1990 poster. Here is a photo of the poser in he 1991 catalog. We have never seen the corresponding poster card.

290918  King of Zing  (Ryan)         1990

Ryan left Houston after a contract dispute following the 1988 season and signed with the Texas Rangers at age 42. In 1989, he  led the league with 301 strikeouts and become the only pitcher to record 5,000 career strikeouts. In 1990, Ryan threw his sixth no-hitter and earned his 300th win.
