1989 Topps New Kids on the Block trading cards brought the right stuff to the hobby by featuring one of the biggest teen heartthrob bands of the era on one of the most quintessentially 80s card designs of all time. Each card has at least two variants with backgrounds being seemingly random throughout the collection.

There was also a set of stickers included with this set, also with variants. The back of the sticker cards were the pieces of a larger photo puzzle.

Each sticker card had one of two backs, with either a yellow or a red border and a completely different puzzle piece. As with the main card set, the backgrounds on sticker fronts were also random and varied on the same card.

With all the variants on cards and stickers, it is pretty easy to collect this set three times and have three complete and completely different collections.

The design for this set was used in the 2018 Throwback Thursday set. The packaging for this set was used in the 2018 80th Anniversary Wrapper Art series.
