60 Type 4 NPCs from 1988/89


In  blog 30 we looked at four  type 4 poster cards. Since then new information has become available which help us to place these cards in the scheme of NPC.  The 4 NPC are shown below. 

Supreme Court: the most famous of the four contains from L to R  Sidney  Moncrief, Michael  Jordan, Charles Barkley, Moses  Malone, Chuck  Person, Ron Harper and Alvin Robertson. We previously concluded that it must come from 1986 - 1989 based on their career years. 

The next one is labeled "the big guys and without question is a poster of the "athletics West" team supported by Nike in the late 1980s. 

The 3rd poster is more mysterious and pictures a female athlete leaning on what looks like  Greek pillar or column. 

The 4th NPC depicts a cyclist  cycling across a large bridge (Golden Gate ??) 

The first new info is that after checking with poster expert Bruce Fisher we can confirm that all 4 of these NPC have equivalent posters. Bruce has or has seen all of them. 

Further new info is that we have just acquired a lot of ~50 NPC that have been in a poster card box (see blog #1) for years. They include only type 2 and type 4 NPC from the period 1988 - 1989 and include all 4 of these NPC. 

It is thus logical that we conclude that these 4 NPCs are the missing numbers 
818, 819, 872, and 880 and that they were issued in 1988 / 1989.
