Welcome Cubs Fans!

This Blog will be about the decade of 1980 and the hobby of collecting baseball cards, mainly Chicago Cubs. Most of the modern day cards are inexpensive unlike vintage baseball it will be much easier to collect the different sets. So we will start off with 80 Topps and end with 89 Upper Deck with thousands of cards in-between. Highlight of this era is 83 Sandberg Rookie

1989 Donruss

This set consists of 660 standard-size cards.. The front of these cards contain a player photo with the Donruss logo and year located at bottom top. The players name and position are located along the top border. The team logo is also found on the front of the card just below the players name along the top border. The border of these cards is multi-colored that fades from dark to light. The backs contain the typical player bio and stats and printed in black on orange.

The first 26 cards of the set are part of the Diamond Kings (DK) subset. Card number 27 is the Diamond King checklist card. Cards (28-47) are part of the Rated Rookie (RR) subset. These cards were issued in packs that contained puzzle pieces that make up a Warren Spahn puzzle and team logo sticker cards. Each regular player card can be found in 2 variations. The variation is the word Denotes or De-notes can be found on the back above the stats in the header line. Neither variation carries a premium.

Donruss apparently chose to double print 106 cards. These double prints are listed below by DP. A special card was issued on blister packs, and features the card number as "Bonus Card".
