Although past iterations added a clear design change to indicate the variations, the "tell" for the 2021 Donruss Baseball variations is very subtle.

In some cases for the Retro 1987 cards, there is no apparent difference on the card's front and only a minimal change on the back. It appears the Retro 1987 variation backs are also upside down, which is easier to identify in person.

User Comments

  1. Can someone please specifically explain what the variation is on the text spacing on the Starling Marte card? I’ve been staring at the two pictures for several minutes and I’m not seeing it. Thanks in advance!

  2. It’s in the stats section. ARI/MIA 61 vs ARI/MIA61. It’s a pretty bad variation if that’s the only difference.

  3. Paul Molitor also has “Cream City” listed as his team on the back of the card

  4. Not all of them. At least the Starling Marte pictured above doesn’t, I can’t say for sure if that’s the only one though

  5. Babe Ruth variation says it is the black text but the variation is actually the white text. first line ends with “but by the” instead of ending with “but by the time”.

  6. Right. It says “back text” variation, not “black text.” The different text wording on the back of the card is indeed the variation as stated.
