Trivia

  • Card #195 photo of Scott Kamieniecki was taken on Pink Hat Day at Yankee Stadium, Yankees vs. Twins on June 23, 1991.
  • Card #165 of Ken Griffey Jr. was featured on the cover of the Feb. 1992 issue of Sports Card Trader magazine.
  • 10,000 each of the regular Elite Series cards were randomly inserted into packs.
  • 5,000 Signature Series Cal Ripken Jr. autographed cards were randomly inserted into packs.
  • 7,500 Legends Series Rickey Henderson cards were randomly inserted into packs.
  • 15 cards plus 3 puzzle pieces per pack, 36 packs per box, and 20 boxes per case.
  • Used the best card stock ever for a Donruss release up until this point.
  • Each card contains an anti-counterfeit light sensitive logo.
  • For the first time, a Donruss set was released in tamper-proof foil packs, instead of traditional wax packs.
  • There were three different versions of the factory set. The blue box contained 1992 Leaf preview cards. The red box contained four cards from the 1992 Donruss Update set. There was also a red Coca-Cola set.
  • Donruss made changes to their product regarding inserts, design and packaging following in the footsteps of Upper Deck. Capitalizing on the new hobby trend of insert cards popularized by Upper Deck’s Heroes insert set, Donruss made their traditional subset "Diamond Kings" an insert set. Touted as randomly inserted, the cards were seeded approximately four per box.
  • In the December 1992 issue of Beckett Baseball Card Monthly. Chuck Roethel using a letter measurement scale graded the set "B". The set was featured in the "Card Critic" column titled "Head of the Class". Mr. Roethel raved "the quality-stock and attractive blue color scheme on the front...proved to me that Donruss had returned in full force".
  • Diamond Kings
    A very limited amount of 5" X 7" cards were produced. These issues were never formally released but these cards were intended to be premiums in retail products.

This has got to be the worst set ever. They reproduced the entire set because a "."?

Is the checklist for the non-variations missing? I have a ton of cards without the "1991 Leaf, Inc." but all that is available to check is the "1991 Leaf, Inc."
