1984 Donruss

1984 Donruss contains 660 cards including 7 unnumbered checklists. This set has since grown in stature to be recognized as one of the finest produced in the 1980's. Donruss changed the front of their design however the Donruss logo and year are still included. The players name and position are located inside a colored box along the bottom. The players team is located near the bottom and is inside a swooshing set of pinstripes to connect with the Donruss logo and both sides of the card. The backs are printed on green and white and are identical to the previous years with stats, career highlights and contract status.

The first 26 cards of the set are part of the Diamond Kings (DK) subset and each one of the Diamond King cards can be found in 2 variations. A new feature, cards (27-46) are part of the Rated Rookie (RR) subset. These cards were issued in packs that contained 3 puzzle pieces that make up a Duke Snider puzzle.
