1988 Donruss (Orange border) #182

I told ya we were done with the blue, but I bet you weren't anticipating the exact same thing except orange!



Again, no real clue what set this card comes from, but I'm guessing... Opening Day.  I base this on the oddball Donruss look-a-like card from 1986 that happened to be from the Opening Day set.  I could be wrong, and probably am.

Hey Joe:

It's a set called Donruss Baseball Best. It's a 336 card set. I don't remember seeing packs of it. I think it was only released in 1988 and 1989. Hope this helps.

Dan, there was also a series produced in 1990, but it was divided into separate NL and AL sets. They were blue bordered. You are correct, they were not released in packs.

I had the same questions about these when I came across them as well. Of the 3, I like the 1990 versions the best!!
