1981 Donruss Baseball

1981 Donruss: the set made on what has to be the thin card stock ever created by man. It's the card you can see shadows through holding it up to a 100 watt bulb. I'm not kidding. Go grab some out of your collection and give it a try.

When I bought this pack, it was the first one from a 'fresh' box and the card shop owner made no promises that it hadn't been searched. I thought to myself, based on Donruss' collation back in the day, there really wasn't anyway I would be able to know if it had been searched or not unless I got something.

Turns out, I would say it hadn't been searched:

No problem, will do. That gum has become one with the card like cement.
