UPDATE - 20 January 2017
A Bernie Williams postcard has surfaced featuring Bernie at the bat, wearing a jersey featuring the "7" on the sleeve, memorializing Mickey Mantle who had died in August 1995. That means the "1993" list is probably a mix of postcards from 1993, 1994 and 1995 (or even 1996 given how the #7 was only used late in the season). Thanks to eagle-eyed Kid4hof03 on FreedomCardboard who pointed this out.

Thanks to Michael over at New York Yankees baseball cards, we now have solid information for splitting these postcards into individual 1992 & 1993 sets. The list below has been updated accordingly.
UPDATE - 25 June 2015
I'm now thinking this is actually two or three separate sets, or the set was issued continuously over two or three years. This morning on eBay I caught an auction with previously unseen cards of Danny Tartabull in a portrait shot, another Kevin Maas with a different photo and a Roberto Kelly. Kelly wasn't even on my radar for some reason, even though he was an All-Star for the Yankees in 1992, so I don't know why I was surprised. Checking the same seller's completed auctions turned up another lot that included Buck Showalter, Mark Conner and new-to-me cards of Clete Boyer and Yankee Stadium.
UPDATE - 15 January 2013
I saw the Maas postcard on eBay, so the set is now up to 26. I'm going to start posting images of each postcard as I find them so collectors might have a slightly better chance of recognizing them. I suspect the black & white cards are copies of the originals, but until I find color versions, these are all I have to work with.
UPDATE - 09 December 2011
A couple more of these showed up on eBay recently, but they are no help in narrowing the set down to a single year as all six individuals were with the team from 1992-93.
UPDATE - 04 December 2012
A much larger assortment of these has hit eBay, bring the checklist up to 25. I finally have verification of most of the starters of the team.
Here are the front and back together:
No joy on Googling SPORTSPRINT/ATLANTA aside from more references to that 1994 Greenville Braves set. Ditto for the photographers and what was presumably the outfit that provided the photos.
Definitely a welcome addition to the collection, though!
The confirmed 1992 checklist as it stands now:
|Don Mattingly (portrait)
Danny Tartabull (portrait)
The presumed 1993-1995 checklist as it stands now:
Jim Abbott (pitching) (1994)
Jim Abbott (portrait) (1993)
Paul Assenmacher (1993)
Wade Boggs (batting)(1994/95?)
Wade Boggs (portrait) (1993)
Mark Connor (1993)
Mike Gallego (1994?)
Paul Gibson (1993/94?)
Pat Kelly (1994/95?)
Jimmy Key (1993/94?
Kevin Maas (1993)
Don Mattingly (batting) (1994/95?)
Hensley Meulens (1993)
Bobby Munoz (1993)
Matt Nokes (1993?)
Danny Tartabull (batting) (1994/95?)
Bob Wickman (1993?)
Bernie Williams (batting, 7 on shoulder)
Based on games played in 1993, and using Meulens as a sort of lower threshold for inclusion, I would expect cards to exist for the following (but have no evidence):
