One of the biggest hits of the Junk Wax Era! In the summer of 1989, Nike launched their 'Bo Knows' campaign during the All-Star game (played at Anaheim Stadium). The timing couldn't have been any more perfect. Bo led off the bottom of the 1st with a homer off NL starter Rick Reuschel. He finished 2-for-4 with 2 RBI and a stolen base... and was named the game's MVP in a 5-3 win.
The TV ad featured Nike's cast of celebrity athletes and musician Bo Diddley. This cross-training photograph of Bo was used in print ads... and Score put it on card No. 697 for their 1990 set. The large blue and white "BO" on the artwork comes from the back of this card in matching EuroStyle font.
Bo knows music, but the actual record used for this release is a completely random album. What songs are on it? Spin it and find out!
About Junk Wax Records
In 1980, Fleer won a 5-year long monopolization lawsuit vs Topps, opening up the baseball card market for competition. Throughout the decade, production increased and boxes of wax packs filled the shelves of new hobby shops across America.
Before a record album is pressed onto vinyl, it first gets mastered, or cut, on wax. Junk Wax Records is a mashup of iconic cards from this era and recycled 12-inch LPs. My Junk Wax logo is inspired by the Fleer crown, as their court battle flipped this industry upside down.
