Baseball Card Price Guide Cubs Cards 1989 / 1964

After wrapping up the Baseball Cards Magazine Cubs cards, I'm moving on to another brand of magazine cards, Sport Collectors Digest Baseball Cards Price guide.  They put out cards from 1989 to 1993 and they too used the same idea of ripping off Topps designs.

The first release came in the October 1989 issue and the set consists of 15 cards using the 1964 design.  There is one Cub among the 15....

.... Ryne Sandberg.

And how did they do with their recreation?

Not very good.  Not very good at all.... team name not even close, wrong color for the  box around the players name and position, wrong color with the position name.

We'll see if they improve with practice tomorrow when we take a look at the 1990 cards.


  1. Even Topps can't match their own designs with their heritage sets. Probably too much to expect these magazines to do any better. The closest match has been SOME of the custom card makers.

  2. Well, they got the whitespace correct at the top of the cards! 😆😆😆
