Retro Beckett Baseball Card Monthly Hot / Cold – May, 1990

Share:

Welcome to a Retro Beckett Baseball Card Monthly Hot/Cold. This time, we’re taking it back to May, 1990.¬†Julia Roberts was reaching Hollywood superstardom with Pretty Woman. Bird on a Wire and Back to the Future III would top the box office in the latter part of the month. On the radio, you couldn’t escape “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor and Madonna’s “Vogue.” Mark Messier and the Edmonton Oilers were crowned Stanley Cup Champions.

On the cover of Beckett Baseball Card Monthly? That’d be the Hitman, Don Mattingly.

    Canseco was always on the Hot & Cold lists during the late 80s/early 90s!
