64. Jeff Pierce Tour de France 290890 type 2 and type 4

In blog 56 we described how NIKE had mistakenly given two Mark Allen Cycling posters the same number, i.e 290890. Well it end up the true story is even worse. 

Nike Mike points out that the second poster is actually Jeff Pierce NOT Mark Allen. Jeff Pierce is one of only two US riders to have won the final stage of the Tour de France on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. If you check the internet, indeed you find the same photo at a slightly different angle of Jeff in his 7-Eleven cycling shirt with arms in the air. 

In addition it appears that this NPC was issued both in type 2 (which we previously showed you) and type 4 .(see below).

It appears as "Cycling (Jeff Pierce) " in the sept 1988 catalog while the true 29890 poster " Cycling (Mark Allen) " is a 1989 poster . Confused yet ??
