Hand Painted Cover
The cover above is more elaborate than most covers of this genre. In addition to the usual cachet on the front there was information printed on the back flap (center) and when you lifted the back flap up it uncovers a second image seen in the third image.
This is a hand painted cover of the pitching staff of the 1990 World Series Champs known as "The Nasty Boys".
