1989 Donruss All-Stars

Check out this 1989 Donruss All-Star set. It's a 64 card set featuring the participants of the 1988 Major league Baseball All-Star game.

In addition to cards of all the players, each manager got a card, and there is an additional card for the top vote getter in each league (Jose Canseco and Ozzie Smith) and the MVP of the game (Terry Steinbach). There is also card featuring Riverfront Stadium where the game was played and two checklist cards. On the checklists you'll notice that the starters and the manager also have a pop up card as well. I'll show those off tomorrow.

This set, as well as the 20 card pop up set and a complete Warren Spahn puzzle from 1989 Donruss set me back 78 cents. I love finding deals like this. I was familiar with the puzzle because it was from the regular 1989 Donruss set, but I wasn't familiar with the All-Star set or the pop up cards before finding them at my LCS for less than a buck.


  1. Wow, you got a great deal. The 1989 set of these came in wax packs; I bought a handful back when they came out, opened some, and kept the rest unopened. I've been posting Donruss All-Stars from other years -- I have a handful of them from 1984, 1985, and 1987 that I've posted, and I have been going through the 1986 set in installments (1986 is the only year for which I have the complete set). I don't have a complete set of any of the pop-ups, but I did post a few of the 1988 pop-ups once.

  2. Canseco. McGwire. Steinbach. Lansford. Eckersley. I sure miss the good old days.

  3. Wow, that is some set, and some deal! Congrats on finding it.
