  • team issued Yankees postcards (1987-1993)?

    I recently caught a previously unknown Hensley Meulens postcard on eBay that looks to have been part of a set issued in 1990 or 1991. The front was in color, and the back had the usual post card spaces, and seems to have been produced by AtlantaSports Prints. The same seller also had cards of Buck Showalter and Steve Howe. I posted about it on my blog and once the card arrives, I'll post better scans of the back.

    Does anyone have any information on Yankees postcards of contemporary players from that time period? I've seen plenty with legends, but this is the first evidence I've see of any sets from the 1990s with current players. It's got me wondering if I'm missing any more cards of Meulens, Roberto Kelly and Dave Winfield. I know TCMA did sets in 1985 & 1986, but until the 2000s, I hadn't seen any other postcard issues from the Yankees.

    I asked the seller on eBay about the origins of his postcards, but unfortunately, they were received as a gift of just those three cards. He doesn't know any more about them. Does anyone know if the Yankees ever gave away postcards as a promotion at games, or were they just available for purchase in the souvenir shop?

      Saw the Meulens card on your blog and I believe I have about 20 of the post cards in the set. I remember a Mattingly, Boggs? They are currently buried in a box someplace and will have to dig them out and I will post the ones I have. I got them from a coworker of mine whose nephew worked for the Yankees back then and he gave a set of the post cards.

        Ah, thanks, I'm very interested in knowing who all is in the set. I'm guessing it's the 1993 team if there was a Boggs.
