1983 & 1984 Donruss from Dime Boxes

Yesterday I went to a card shop and picked up some 1984 Donruss cards hoping that I needed them for the set I'm working on. I ended up grabbing 47 cards ranging from 4 cents to $1 apiece, hoping I needed them for my set. I checked my phone, but couldn't find my needs list so I made the purchases blind.

I ended up needing 19 of the cards for my set, so I did pretty well, but it's weird that I couldn't find my 1984 Donruss Needs list on my phone because I found it right away when I searched on my computer.

Here are the cards I needed.

The Ron Darling is the No Number version.

I also grabbed a bunch of 1983 Donruss Diamond Kings since I'm trying to collect all of the Diamond Kings cards. I needed these 6, but I ended up with 8 cards I didn't need. I need to get an updated list together of all my Diamond King needs.

I also grabbed 8 Hall of Famers and a Fernando Valenzuela card from the 1983 Donruss set just because they were a dime each.

I bought more than this yesterday, but these are all the Donruss purchases, so I'll stop here for now. 


  1. It is always great to find cards of this era in dime boxes. Going back a few posts, did you see my comment about asking about one of the Donruss Hall of Famer sets that you profiled on the one post?

  2. A lot of good cards there.

    I need 5 1983 Donruss DK cards and 2 from '82. My dealer said he has them, but he's really dragging his feet on locating them.
