36 packs per box, 15 cards per pack
Returning to 528 cards for the first time since 1982. Each pack included a 1,000 Yard Club card. The cardbacks can be found with variations: the NFL Properties disclaimer is either present or absent from the back of each card. The cards are arranged in team order and the teams themselves are ordered according to their finish in the 1989 standings. Subsets include Record Breakers (1-5) and Team Action (501-528) cards. League Leader cards are scattered throughout the set. A few leader cards (28, 193, 229, and 431) as well as all of the Team Action cards can be found with or without the hashmarks on the bottom of the card.
