Ahhhhhh! 1987 Donruss Baseball cards. The Mark McGwire Rated Rookie was the one to get! Bo Jackson & Jose Canseco’s card’s were in high demand as well. Barry Bonds error card with a pic of Johnny Ray was and still is the most sought after card from the set. Topps was cranking the presses with their 1987 issue, but Donruss and Fleer kept their print volumes to match sales. At one point, a pack of 1987 Donruss cards fetch $12 each.
Donruss saw the success Topps was having with the 1987 issue so they decided to crank up the presses for 1988. We all know how that turned out!
