Product Details

User Rating:

While it may not be worth much today, 1987 Donruss Baseball is one of the brand's stronger releases from both a checklist and a design perspective.

The 660-card set is highlighted by rookie cards of a couple of Hall of Famers in Greg Maddux and Barry Larkin. Other notable rookies include David Cone, Rafael Palmeiro and Mike Greenwell. Because they made their debuts in traded box sets, some consider Barry Bonds, Bo Jackson and a handful of others to be rookies as well, although that's debatable.

1987 Donruss Greg Maddux RC 1987 Donruss Barry Larkin

Like most Donruss sets, there isn't much in the way of subsets. The set kicks off with 27 Diamond Kings once again painted by Dick Perez. They're followed by 20 Rated Rookies, which is where you'll find the Maddux and Palmeiro rookies.

1987 Donruss Baseball cards are easily distinguishable for their black borders. A thick brown and yellow stripe runs horizontally through the middle of the card. However, the size of the photo makes it more of an accent.

Building a full master set isn't difficult. Wax boxes have four cards on the bottom. Collectors could also send away for a set of over-sized Diamond Kings Supers. There are no other inserts.

Although 1987 Donruss Baseball is still popular in a lot of circles, this doesn't translate into values. Like virtually every set from the era, there is enough of it out there to satisfy demand several times over. It's the kind of set where it is best enjoyed for what it is and not so much as a way to make a lot of money. Even professionally graded gems of the Maddux and Larkin rookies are relatively affordable.
