1984 Sporting News Conlon Collection

 Marketcom put out another Sporting News Conlon set in 1984. The set included both over-sized cards and postcards.  There are 60 cards in the sets, though not 60 players. Several players (Ruth, Cobb, Matthewson, among others) have multiple cards.  The same players are pictures are used on the cards and postcards.

There are three Cubs players included, each with one card.


These are the large cards, which measure 4" x 6".  It's nice that they have the player's name on the front.  No guessing needed here.  The TCDB puts Wilson in the Cubs team set.  I'm pretty sure, though, that the picture shows him with the Giants.

The postcards were standard postcard sized and have a full bleed picture on the front, with no names. 


The backs were that standard postcard design.
