New Kids on the Block (2nd Series)
Topps/Big Step - 1990

Note:  This one seemed to be a little bit easier than the first series, because there
are only two variations in background/border for the cards and stickers.  But it
is getting complicated again because we can't find a second version for about a
dozen of the cards, and maybe only one version exists. That would be a change
from the "philosophy" they used in the first set. Card and sticker backs are
identical within the front variation sets.  Thus, a complete variation set may
contain up to 156 cards plus 22 stickers.  I hope the descriptions of the variations
are usable without having all of the other variations handy. I have a complete
regular set, but I'm missing some of the variations, so help in describing them
would be appreciated. Does anybody out there care, except me and Ray?

Box: 36 packs of 8 cards + 1 sticker.
Common sets: approx. 3.27 per box if collation were perfect.
Variation sets: approx. 1.63 per box, but don't expect one.
