Notes:  Cornelius Bennett is new to the list.  I saw this information on another blog and confirmed with my own cards (except Black Stat header). UPDATE: Eric Dickerson was a 'short print' because he would not join the NFLPA (NFL Players Association).  The NFL and NFLPA would only authorize "official" cards of players who were in both.  Also, he was placed on the inactive list for the first 7 weeks of the 1990 NFL season by the Colts because of contract disputes. Cody Risien was a 'short print' because he retired (for a second and final time) on July 26, 1990, after leaving training camp.  I have updated wikipedia to include this information.  As always, if you have any further information, please email me or post!

  1. I am in possession of 2 Pro Set 1990 cards that have been mis-printed. Mark Clayton #177 and Stanley Morgan #205. Have you heard of these particular cards being mis-cut from other collectors? Could they be worth anything? Thank you for any information. My email is Chucksrx@gmail.com Thank you
