    1989 Topps Superstar Watches - Any Info?

    Anybody have a checklist for 1989 Topps Superstar Watches made by Nelsonic? Or have one in their collection? These were MLB-licensed plastic watches with a miniature 1989 Topps baseball card that hinged open to a digital watch. Swear I saw a Mark Grace many, many years ago, and haven't seen one since. Would like to confirm its existence. There are a couple on eBay. The players I can find are:

    confirmed sightings:

    Jose Canseco
    Doc Gooden
    Mark McGwire
    Roger Clemens
    Kirby Puckett
    Don Mattingly
    Orel Hershiser

    edit to add:
    Ozzie Smith (per @Mozzie22)



    Apparently, each player can be found in blue, black and white wristbands. Found a listing for a lot of 44 Orel Hershisers with multiples of all 3 colors, and have seen different color McGwires too.

    Donít really know a lot about them. I bought a lot of McGwire similar to the Hershiser one you described. White seemed to be the rarest, at least in my lot.

    Those are awesome. I thought I knew almost everything about '80s baseball oddball cards and collectibles, but I didn't know those existed. I want a Mattingly one.

    You can add Ozzie Smith to the list. I've had his versions for years.

    Holy crap that's cool. I'm a big Swatch fan from way back and would definitely wear these.

    Oh man, there's a Hulk Hogan one! Where's that 15% coupon when I need it?

    The lot of Hershisers was tempting until I saw the shipping on top, plus I don't need more than one of each color and have too much crap extra as it is. I wouldn't mind one or a series of colors, but singles were priced higher than I'd consider paying, especially for the players offered (none interest me). I guess from a perspective of what I like and would collect, a Greg Maddux would be my #1 choice for a type item, since there was no 89 T Garvey card. I usually prefer a Dodger for a type item, but they really didn't have anyone on the team that I am crazy about when it comes to collectibles.
