WHITE WHALE RESCUED!!! I Have Finally Landed An Andre Dawson 1991 Donruss Elite Baseball Card!!!
I have been seeking this specific baseball card for years. And if I had to make a list of the most wanted baseball cards I’d like to add to my Andre Dawson baseball card collection, this card would have been in the top spot, every single time.
But finally, the wait is over.
I have secured a rare beauty. And as always, I did it my way – with patience and on a budget.
The card is a 1991 Donruss Elite baseball card. These cards were limited to 10,000 copies each and they are serial numbered as such. The cards were randomly inserted into both Series 1 and Series 2 wax packs of 1991 Donruss baseball cards. For the 1991 set, there were 10 cards total, 8 base cards and even more limited edition cards of Nolan Ryan and Ryne Sandberg.
According to Beckett Media, the 1991 Donruss Elite baseball card set was the first set to ever print serial numbers on the actual cards. This helped confirm the print run for the first time in hobby history.
Here is the card:
As a kid, I never knew that these existed – If I had, I probably would have gone after more 1991 Donruss wax.
Today, these cards are still very highly collectible. I am very, very happy to have finally got mine!!!
