- So I've seen a lot of hate for 1986 Donruss baseball in card collecting blogs. Is it really as lame as people make it out to be? Let's investigate.
Upper Left: Brand and year.
Lower Left: Team logo.
Bottom: Player's name and position.
This might seem like basic stuff. But in the world of card collecting, it isn't. A name left off here, a position left off there, only Topps has logos now. Oh - and good luck getting the year on the front.
The photos are sometimes good, sometimes boring. I won't say buy this set for the photos. But it's not a set that should be known for bad photos either.
The bordering is distinct, yet in a subtle way. I like it, but apparently others don't. Are these the same people who claim a Topps set with a vanilla ass white border is the best ever? Probably.
Let's flip it over.
Is that - no, it can't be - black print on a white background, so I can actually read it?
Heck, even the outer light blue is better looking than a lot of colors Topps has used over the years.
- In other news, I purchased this 1972-73 Topps card from my dealer:
- So now that I need a Maury Wills for my Base Stealers project, he decided to not have cards for several years.
