  • Card #223a of Sam Vincent features Michael Jordan in the foreground wearing a #12 jersey. This photograph was taken on February 14, 1990 in a game in Orlando. Michael Jordan's #23 jersey was stolen before the game, so he wore #12.
  • The 1990 All-Rookie Team card featuring David Robinson on the front accepting his "Minute Maid Orange Soda NBA Rookie of the Year" trophy with the other four members of the All-Rookie Team on the back (Vlade Divac, Tim Hardaway, Pooh Richardson, and Sherman Douglas) was available through a mail-in offer on the packs. The offer expiration date was July 30, 1991.
  • One print ad featured a single pack against a white background and the tagline, "Leader of the packs.", along with a row of seven sample cards along the bottom and a tease for Series II in the upper left.
  • Set features the rookie card of 3 Hall of Fame players including Gary Payton.
  • Card #205 of Mark Jackson includes the Menendez brothers in the background, sitting courtside at Madison Square Garden. The brothers would later go on to be convicted of murdering their parents.

Geonkz, the Olajuwon card is not an error. He changed his spelling that year. Also, it is card 127. Card 281 is Derrick McKey.

Card number 281 has an error card which shows Akeem Olajuwon on the front.
