Keith Hernandez 1987 Donruss ‘Opening Day’
Ah, ‘Opening Day’. As a baseball fan, I feel as if this very special day should be a nationally recognized holiday, or at the very least a day in which one can take the day off from work with no potential ramifications…
But, that is not logical – at least in today’s times.
This card below of Keith Hernandez comes from the 1987 Donruss ‘Opening Day’ set. The card features the same design as the 660-card base set issued in 1987, with the lone difference being the new Maroon border versus the Black border that the base set employed.
Have a look:
As for Mr. Hernandez and his efforts on Opening Day in 1987, he went 2-for-4 with two singles in a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates at Shea Stadium.
Definitely a solid start to what would end up being a magical season!!
