Mike Schmidt 1986 Donruss Baseball Card
I am not a big fan of the 1986 Donruss baseball card design. Actually, I find it to be one of the more annoying designs from the 1980’s.
But, I do find this card of Mike Schmidt to be pretty interesting to look at.
Have a peek:
While collecting cards of Schmidt for my player collection, many of the cards that feature him batting show him either before his swing or at some stage of the follow-through. This one also shows him in the milliseconds after making contact with a pitch, but the part of the backswing that has been captured is not a standard one.
You get to see him in the middle of his follow-through. You get to see him keeping his eye on the ball and his head raising as he watches the trajectory of the ball that he has lifted into the air.
This is a very nice card.
Way to go Donruss!!
