1991 Donruss Series 1
To you all the junk wax is past.
And perhaps the worst time to get cards.
But for me it's fun.
Until I get at least a couple of cards from every other set of those years I will not rest.
Those repack packs are good for this. But I have not been able to get those anymore so I'm doing fine with these rack packs.
The worst are those that say 'Gum'.
I tend to run away from those but that will eventually lead me to miss some years and brands cards.
There is always a price to pay...
So as you might already noticed today I'm posting about '91 Donruss Series 1.
I got 6 well known Diamond Kings and they probably are the best draws I got from Donruss.
They don't need that much of photoshop.
Even if Dave Righetti seems to be a bit in pain. Perhaps he snapped a spike on the foot.
The card back is quite dense with info that I love.
What got me thinking is the crown on the bottom with the dates.
Are those the years in which he was selected to a Diamond King? Because there are others that have no crown. And if they put on the crown the present (ate the time) year of '91 all them should have a crown.
Just me saying...
Then 3 Highlights cards.
A no-hitter along side fielding records and catchers records.
Also got 2 All Star cards.
I like these cards and I like they still make the sets nowadays. Well...the set. They usually are featured in the Update Series set.
The Bob Welch is a night card? Night Owl must know that better than me.

(I think these last three cards are my favourite)
I love blue so I like the borders.
About the strips, Donruss has it as a trademark to which I don't have anything against. I even find it fun trying to match the cards in order for the strips in the borders match the best possible.
Donruss is really a puzzle.
