Legal Citation Help Please - BlueBook?

How do you cite a case which has been overturned by another? i.e. - Texas v. Johnson (1989) 491 U.S. 397, and let's say it was overturned by Garcia v. San Antonio Metro. Transit Authority 469 U.S. 528 (1985).

How do you cite this according to the BlueBook?? HELP PLEASE!!!!!!
