merging my pictures and cards

1981 Donruss – Jim Thome

Today I am going to do something different. I am going to post a Donruss card from every year in the eighties. If the mood strikes me right I may keep going a little. For now though let’s start with the card that started it all.In 1981 Donruss started coming out with cards. Along with Fleer they really started a competition for the fans money. The initial design was pretty simple, but I think it has held up over the years.

This picture was taken before a game in 2009 as Jim was warming up. He probably spent longer on the field than anyone getting ready for the game.
