1990 Bowman (produced by Topps) is a 528 card set. Unlike the 1989 set, all cards are standard-sized. Player selection did include some more rookies and prospects; however, the rookie and prospect content was a long way from what the Bowman brand would become. Like the '89 Bowman set, the 1990 edition can be seen as a second Topps "flagship" set.
The card fronts have a non-glossy finish and feature a color player photograph with a white border. The card reverse is not finished and has a vertical orientation. The backs feature player personal stats, and playing stats against other teams in 1989.
Notable Rookie Cards include Moises Alou, Travis Fryman, Juan Gonzalez, Chuck Knoblauch, Ray Lankford, Sammy Sosa, Frank Thomas, Mo Vaughn, Larry Walker, and Bernie Williams.
