1991 Sports Educational


Today's card come from 1991 Sports Educational.  The magazine wasn't a price guide but it often gets lumped in with the others from this era.  Instead, it was, as its name implies, an educational workbook that happened to have cards inside.  Editions were made not just for baseball, but for football, hockey, and basketball too.

I don't own the magazine, so I borrowed a picture of the cover from eBay.  But as I was writing this, my teacher's curiosity got the best of me.  I wondered what skills were being taught in the book and at what grade level.  So I found an inexpensive auction and was able to get the book for less than the 1991 cover price of $7.95.  By the way, $7.95 seems pretty high for a book like this.  That price is the equivalent of $15.72 today

The one Cub card belongs to Ryne Sandberg, as usual with these types of books.

  1. I'm curious about that workbook too. Can't wait to see some of the scans of the handouts/activities.
