Title: Taco Bell Dallas Mavericks
Size: 3-1/2″ by 5″
Number in Set: 4
Dallas-area Taco Bells distributed these cards for 99 cents each with any food purchase, and each card came cello-wrapped with a different card coming out each week in February. Taco Bell made 83k sets. The Mavericks also gave away an unnumbered promotional advertisement card at the team’s January 27th, 1996 home game with a print run of 10k.
A comic book illustrator, Larry Weber, drew the cards’ caricature-like illustrations. The player’s name is foiled along the side of the front.
The backs show the Taco Bell logo and indicate Tamada Marketing Group produced them.
