1986 Donruss ‘Fleet Feet’ Starring Vince Coleman & Willie McGee

1986 Donruss ‘Fleet Feet’ Starring Vince Coleman & Willie McGee

Vince Coleman and Willie McGee were two of my favorite players as a kid.  So, you could imagine my excitement as I found that in the 1986 Donruss baseball card set that both players would be featured on a single card.

It’s too bad that the card did not live up to the hype….

What a horrible photoshop job on this one…  Even as an 11-year old kid, I knew that this card was just plain awful.  I remember saying to myself, ‘couldn’t they have just taken a picture of the two of them standing next to each other’??

I was pretty sharp back then, huh???

  1. no photoshop in 1985, the printing plates were adjusted to make the printing the way it came out. But yes, when you look at it now, it would be a terrible photoshop job.

  2. This is one of my favorite cards of all-time. I guess the cheesiness doesn’t hurt. I would have been 10 at the time it came out, but even then I knew how amazing it was. Fleer did the same thing with the “Cardinal Ignitors” card in ’86 as well (with an actual photo of them together), but it just wasn’t quite as glorious.

  3. Great card, but it could have been better.

  4. I miss the stolen base…
