1990 Donruss ‘Baseball’s Best’ Andre Dawson

This is the third of three Donruss Baseball’s Best cards I picked in a recent Andre Dawson ‘oddball’ lot. 

The design is exactly the same as the 1990 Donruss base set with the big difference being the border color.  While the base set was framed in a bright Red, this card’s border is a shade of Blue that could best be labeled as Turquoise.

And while I personally don’t care for the color used in this card’s design, I have to admit that Donruss did a great job in selecting photos to use in their ‘Baseball Best’ set.  For some strange reason they used better images of Andre in the 1988, 1989, and 1990 subsets than they did in their regular base issues…  Weird, huh??

See for yourself…

Great pic.  Odd color choice!!!

Celebrity First Pitch – Caron Butler

Former Miami Heat player and current Washington Wizards All-star Caron Butler takes his shot at the ceremonial first pitch prior to the start of a Washington Nationals home game.

Of all of the players that have been traded by the Heat in the last 10 years, Butler is the guy I wish they had not let go…  He has become a very well-rounded and dynamic player and if put in the proper system he should be able to elevate his status to elite!!
