57 - Jack McDowell (There was some sort of Turn Back the Clock event in 1990 which was captured on a lot of 1991 White Sox baseball cards.)
53 - Rickey Henderson All-Star (Finally, a viable baseball player to talk about. Actually, Finley was pretty viable.)
21 - Dave Righetti Diamond King (I don't remember pulling this card back in the day, but I bet if I looked in my old boxes I probably have 7 of these.)
371 - Juan Gonzalez (Juan Gone tried to make a comeback with the Cardinals a couple of years ago only to quitely disappear during spring training. Makes you wonder...)
If you are still reading this, you'll know that I did not receive any Donruss Elite inserts, numbered to 10,000. I am quite convinced that these things do not exist in real life. Somewhere, there's probably an office full of Monopoly-looking dudes rolling these things up and smoking them while swimming in piles of gold coins.
I think they line the cages of their mini-giraffes with them just to spite us.
How I hate this set.
Even if this pack was loaded with nothing but Nolan Ryan cards, Diamond Kings, and those mythical "Elite" cards you speak of, I still would have shame rated this pack. 1991 Donruss sucks.
When somebody says "junk wax", what immediately pops into my head is a picture of one of these pasty-ass cream colored packs.
Nice time capsule though:
Total number of cards: 15
Total number of mullets: at least 5
Total number of players of color: 5
Players of color without mullets: 5
Someone actually rated this one "Okay".
Hahahah, this is the first baseball set I ever had, my dad would buy me team sets at Wal-Mart, somehow I still managed to survive and keep collecting
