Thus there appears to be 242 different cards / variations as shown below .

Quite a set indeed ! Does anyone have the full set ?? KC does not, I do not ...Anyone out there ??

85. the History of Nike Poster Cards ....per KC....part 5f.....type 3 290984 - 291015

Now lets finish of our detailed look at type 3 Nike Poster cards with 290984 through 291015 . From multiple sources we know that this carries us through June of 1992.

We already knew the identity of 290986, 290990, 290991, 290999, 291000, 291006, 291007, 291008, 290009. None of these had NPCs.

KC can now confirm that 290992 was assigned to the Jordan pop art poster 290965, but in this case it was for Jordan signed copies (wish I had one of these !)

KC confirms that 291011 was assigned to the "MLK" poster (shown below)  which for some reason was not picked up by the commercial group and given a NPC product number

291012 was assigned to the poster catalog order form, 290013 was assigned to a 1992 counter top display and 291014 was issues to a reprinting of the "just do it" poster 290889 but was not issued a new NPC.

With that we have now assigned all the Nike product numbers for the type 3 NPC, a feat which at times I thought would be impossible.  

Blog 86 will be the complete numerical listing as we know it as of May 2022 

After that I will be spending some time going back and sending readers of the earlier blogs t these later blogs for updated information. Thank you for your patience and thank KC for all the valuable information that we could not have gotten any other way. 


84. the History of Nike Poster Cards ....per KC....part 5e.....type 3 290957 - 290983

Continuing our look at type 3 NPC from 290957 through 290983 all issued in 1991. This group had a lot of missing Nike product codes which KC has now clarified for us. 

We had previously identified 290965 as  Jordan Pop art poster (shown below) , 290975 as the Spike and Mike card set , 290976 as Sergey Bubka and 290981 as Katrin Krabbe none of which had NPC assigned to them.

KC now informs us that 290960 was  never assigned. 290969 was a calendar display. 290971 - 290974 have been a mysterious quartet with rumors that they were "womens posters" (whatever that means) KC can now confirm that these were 4 posters issued in 1991 entitled "Your mother", "Say Yes", "Marilyn (Monroe)" and "40 Year old" and 290977 was a "poster pack of the 4 womens posters"   None of these had corresponding NPCs.

83. the History of Nike Poster Cards ....per KC....part 5d.....type 3 290928 - 290956


Now lets look in detail at type 3 290928 - 290956.

We were already aware of the disposition of the Nike product numbers 290930, 290931, 290932, 290944, 290953, 290954, 290955. We now know from KC that 290934 was assigned to a 72 poster display bin (shown below) and 290956 to a floor display unit. 

82. the History of Nike Poster Cards ....per KC....part 5c.....type 3 290900 - 290927

Continuing our look at the type 3 Nike Poster cards lets look in more detail at 290900 - 290927.

We had already previously identified 290900, 290906, 290907 290917, 290924 and through Nike Mike confirmed that these Nike product numbers had no NPC assigned to them. We now know from KC that 290915 was assigned to "Endless Summer" but was deactivated before it was used. 

81. the History of Nike Poster Cards ....per KC....part 5b.....type 3 290829 - 290849

Now Lets start looking in detail at the type 3 poster cards. 

KC informs us that posters 290829 - 290834 were issued in Nov of 1989. The NPC followed close behind with 829, 831 and 834 coming out in late 1989 but 830, 832 discrepancy in chronological dating.

Previously missing number 836 was assigned to the Mark Jackson poster "Air Pressure" (shown below). It had no NPC.

KC informs us that previously missing number 847 was accidentally issued to "GoBo" but was never used.

80 The History of Nike Poster Cards ....per KC....Part 5a... Type 3 The complete type 3 checklist

Now we will begin to finish up with the 4th type of Nike poster card "type 3" where the information about the poster is printed on the front of the card / mini poster. 

As stated in blog 76, Starting with 290829 "Cycling Storm" in late 1989  Nike moved to the new format of heavier paper stock with product information on the front. 

So below we find the full list of type 3 NPC that were issued from late 1989 through June 1992.  Then we will begin to discuss the additions and changes that have been made in subsequent blogs.
