And we complain about when Topps...

uses the same photo on multiple cards.

I've been going through my cards which are currently sorted by team and am sorting them now by player. I was sorting through the Indians and came across several cards of Cliff Lee where Donruss used the same photo.

Here are 6 cards between 2003 - 2005 where Donruss used the same photo on cards in its various brands including Playoff Absolute Memorabilia, Donruss Classics, Donruss, Leaf, and Leaf Certified Materials.

In that 3 year period Donruss probably produced 30+ different sets, so I wonder how many other cards there are of Cliff Lee with this same photo.


  1. If there was as vital and massive a blogging community back then as their is now, Donruss would have been skewered for that, and rightfully so!

  2. Wow. That's pretty ridiculous.

  3. LOL! Poor Donruss. They were in rough shape.

  4. Yeah...They were struggling at that time. Lots of same pics for Pirates during this period.
