1989 Donruss Baseball's Best#34

Card Review: 8.7  This is another set I know nothing about, the number of cards in the set, how it was distributed, ect.  I dind't even know it existed until years after it was issued.  The front design is identical to the '89 Donruss base set, but the back is unique.  While I prefer the stats on this one to the base set, this something mildly disconcerting about a Donruss card without the standard Donruss style of card back.  The green also bugs me.  Perhaps its just a result of shuffling through thousands of '89 Donruss and having the orange ingrained into my brain as the proper color for the back of this card, but I really think the lime green clashes with the greens and yellows on the front (not that orange works much better).

Number of this card in my collection: 3

  1. There's 336 cards in the set. It came in a plastic holder (think silverware drawer) with 6 cellophane wrapped packages of 56 cards each.
