1982 Donruss #140
















Card Review: 7.5  I always found 1982 Donruss to be a mediocre design.  Even as a kid I remember thinking the ball/bat name plate combo at the bottom was a little too juvenile.  I get it, it's a baseball card, and they use bats and balls.  Maybe it's just my bias against Donruss showing, which was/is/and will always be my least favorite of the Topps, Fleer, and Donruss trifecta that dominated the wax pack buying era of my life.  Card design aside, it's a pretty cool shot with the bleacher sin the background and I like anything with the red batting practice jersey.

Fun Facts: *Wallach homered in his first official MLB at-bat
*Wallach drew a walk in his actual first at-bat
*Wallach homered in his first professional at-bat in the minors
*This photo was taken at Wrigley Field.
