Description

1998 Donruss is a 420-card set released in two series of 170 and 250 cards, respectively. The second series is officially known as "Donruss Update." The set contains the topical subsets: Fan Club (156-165), Hit List (346-375), The Untouchables (376-385), Spirit of the Game (386-415) and Checklists (416-420). Each Fan Club card carried instructions on how the fan could vote for their favorite players to be included in a 1998 Donruss Update insert set.

Rookie Cards include Kevin Millwood and Magglio Ordonez. Sadly, after an eighteen year run, this was the last Donruss set to be issued due to card manufacturer Pinnacle's bankruptcy in 1998. In 2001, however, Donruss/Playoff procured a license to produce baseball cards and the Donruss brand was re-instituted after a two year break.

Distribution

24 cards per Hobby box, 10 cards per pack (MSRP: $1.99)

Autographs & Game-Used

1998 Donruss Signature Series Previews

Twenty-nine of these 34 autographed cards were randomly inserted into Donruss Update packs. These cards previewed the then-upcoming 1998 Donruss Signature Series set. Although the cards were not serial-numbered, production figures were publicly announced by Donruss and those figures are next to the players name in our checklist.

The five additional cards (Alou, Casey, Jenkins, Jeter and Wilson) were never intended for public release. It's believed that four players (all except Jeter) signed 100 or more cards but failed to return their cards to the manufacturer in time for the Donruss Update packout. Apparently, the cards were stored in Pinnacle's card vault, but an unknown amount of each card made their way into the secondary market during Pinnacle's bankruptcy proceeding after Playoff bought the holdings. It's believed that a handful of the Jeter cards were erroneously sent to Jeter in his 1998 Donruss Signature card agreement (red, green and blue cards for a separate brand). Jeter simply signed all of the cards and sent them back to the manufacturer.
