George Brett 1985 Donruss

George Brett 1985 Donruss

Donruss is certainly not going to win any awards for the design of their 1985 issue, but  there are a few gems in the set.

And I believe that this card of George Brett falls into that category. 


The image used for this card is superb.  Based on the chain link fence in the background, I am fairly, if not 100%, certain that the shot was taken at a Spring Training facility.  The only puzzling thing about that is that Brett is wearing long sleeves which usually indicates cold weather. 

I love the action captured in this image.  And the angle at which the shot was snapped is a unique one as it gives us a glimpse of Brett coming out of the batter’s box after making contact with a pitch.
