1988-1990 Legends Sports Memorabilia Magazine

These magazines ran from 1988-2001 and have in my opinion some of the best artwork for sports figure out there.  They came from 2 main artist Christopher Paluso, Michael Taylor.  They started to insert uncut sheets of 9 cards from various sports into the magazine summer of 1990 issue.  And then starting in the winter issue of 1990 issued both 9 card sheets and 3 card postcards.  Which continued for years.

This entry I'm going to focus on the first years and the most difficult to track down 1988-1990
