Tim Raines 1984 Donruss
While I like the picture, and the colors of this baseball card are vivid and bright, I just don’t get very excited by too many of the 1984 Donruss base cards.
Raines had a great season in ’84. He hit .309 while collecting 192 hits. His on-base percentage that year was .393 which helped lead to his 75 stolen bases and 106 runs scored. In 622 at-bats, Raines struck out just 69 times – exactly what you want from your lead-off hitter!! Raines’ output was impressive in ’84 – he was selected again as a member of the National League All-star team and he also finished in 11th place for the MVP vote.
A nice addition to my Tim Raines collection, but not that great of a card…
