Keith Hernandez 1987 Donruss
For me, one of my biggest pet peeves with the images used on baseball cards is when you have fantastic action shots being used and part of the action is cropped out.
I like to see the whole story unfolded in front of my eyes, not bits and pieces.
And sadly, cards from the 1980’s feature a lot of badly cropped cards.
Just like this one of Keith Hernandez from the 1987 Donruss set.
Check it out:
The card is nice. The action is present. But the fact that all of Hernandez’s bat is missing from the shot makes this card go from a solid ‘B’ to a ‘D’.
Just like that?
YES – Just like that!
