Cal Ripken Jr. 1990 Donruss MVP Bonus Card
Donruss’ relatively short-lived ‘Bonus MVP’ subset allowed for collectors like me the opportunity to build insert sets and also pick up extra cards of the players we valued the most.
Typically featuring the team’s best and most popular players, the MVP set kind of felt like an All-Star set, with MVP graphics.
This is Cal Ripken’s card from the 1990 set.
I love the idea, and I actually don’t mind the loud background that Donruss employed with this 1990 version of the set. I just wish that the photo selection was better – show me why this player was chosen to be tagged with the MVP title for his team.
Other than that, I like it!
