Carlton Fisk 1990 Donruss MVP – Bonus Card!
For as much as I like the thought of a baseball card subset that names and celebrates the MVP of each team, the execution of the product needs to be able to support the theme.
In the late 1980’s, Donruss started issuing these in-set subsets in the packs for their base set. The design of the card was the same as the base design, but the background of the cards was changed and updated with an MVP printed graphic.
The end result? Fair. Some looked great, some looked fine, and some looked poor.
This is the Carlton Fisk card from the 1990 set.
For me, I like the cards and I love the theme. I just wish that the card showed action images instead of posed portraits – show me one characteristic of what made this player the choice as the team’s MVP.
