Carlton Fisk 1983 Donruss
During the early years of Donruss being in the baseball card business, they did not bring us a lot of creative looks.
The first one that left an impression on me is their 1983 issue and that ‘Glove & Bat Graphic’ in the lower portion of the card. Back when the cards were still ‘new’ to the hobby, I found the graphics to be fun. And when compared to the prior designs that Donruss offered us in their 1981 and 1982 releases, these were stellar!
Check it out:
Today, I still like the cards quite a bit. And it is all due to the graphics.
But, with a more critical eye, I have to say that it would have been neat if Donruss used a right-handed glove for the righties, a left-handed glove for the lefties, an infield mitt for the infielders, an outfield glove for the outfielders, and a catcher’s mitt for the guys like Fisk!!
