This set of 122 football figurines and collectors cards was issued by Cincinnati-based Kenner Toy Company. The statues feature top NFL stars in action poses and are accompanied by a standard-size card. The front has either a posed or action color shot with a black border. The back has biographical and statistical information and a facsimile signature of the player. The four modes of distribution for the '89 Football set were team cases issued in each teams respective region, All-Star cases issued nationwide, Superbowl Twenty-four, and a 1-800 number. Team cases consisted of 24 pieces and were issued in the regional area for that particular team. The individual player assortmetns within the team cases were not equal and caused certain pieces to be short prints. The Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles teams were the shortest printed teams. The Bill Bates, Jerome Brown, and Chris Spielman, are the three toughest figures in the set to currently find. This has also been the only time these three players have been issued. There were two nationwide All-Star case assortments, a AFC and a NFC. Each conferences' All-Star cases consisted of 15 different players making up the 24 piece assortments. The All-Star case players were, Marcus Allen, Neal Anderson, Cornelius Bennett, Bubby Brister, Eddie Brown, Tim Brown, Anthony Carter, Roger Craig, Randall Cunningham, John Elway, Boomer Esiason, Jim Everett, Keith Jackson, Neil Lomax, Howie Long, Dan Marino, Freeman McNeil, Joe Montana, Warren Moon, Jerry Rice, Phil Simms, Mike Singletary, John Stephens, Lawrence Taylor, Vinny Testaverde, Andre Tippett, Al Toon, Herschel Walker, Curt Warner, Reggie White. Also, approximately 25,000 of the Jerry Rice piece was given out at Superbowl XXIV. In 1989, a company in conjunction with Kenner set up a 1-800 mail order business that sold all Kenner products made through 1989. The 1989 football sets were made available at approximately $8.00 per piece through this company. Key first pieces of Bill Bates, Jerome Brown, Shane Conlan, Charles Haley, Michael Irvin, James Lofton, Anthony Munoz, Andre Reed, Chris Spielman, Thurman Thomas, and Steve Young combine to make this Kenner's best first piece class. There is one variation in the set. Ken O'Brien's name is misspelled (O'Brian) on the front of the collector card. This error came in team cases only and was corrected early in production. This misspelled name variation is considerably shorter than the corrected version. The error is not part of the complete set price. The values listed below refer to unopened packages. The cards are unnumbered and checklisted below in alphabetical order. [Collapse]
