Description

The premiere Donruss baseball card set consists 605 cards. Wax packs contained 18 cards as well as a piece of gum -- the only year any confectionary product was allowed in their packs. The standard-size cards are printed on extremely thin stock and some players have un-natural skin tones (i.e. black players appear with purple skin, and white players brown). The key Rookie Cards in this set are Danny Ainge, Tim Raines, and Jeff Reardon.

Numerous errors of the first print run were later corrected by the company. According to published reports at the time, approximately 500 sets were made available in uncut sheet form.

While many of the pictures were taken at the two Chicago area stadiums, some were shot (especially those of New York players) by a young Keith Olbermann.

Hobby dealers were unable to buy factory sets directly from Donruss; instead, they had to buy wholesale from TCMA, Donruss' exclusive Hobby distributor. Interestingly, cards were sent to dealers in rubber-banded bricks of 100 for each player and then had to be collated.
