Best of the American League: The 11 Cards Already in My Collection
The card fronts are obviously different from standard 1990 Donruss cards in that they're blue rather than red. The backs are different in that they're vertical and feature full stats rather than the Donruss horizontal standard of five years plus career totals.

|Jeff Ballard and Ellis Burks.|
|Kevin Brown and Matt Nokes.|
|Steve Sax and Tom Henke.|
The Blue Jays had a lot of great players in the 80s, as they were building towards their back-to-back World Series wins in the early 90s. Henke was one of many strong pitchers they had, and he was the closer with the 1992 championship team. As a free agent, he left for Texas after that 1992 season, playing with the Rangers in 1993 and 1994, and the Cardinals in 1995 before retiring. In 1989, Henke had a great 1.92 ERA with 20 saves, appearing in 64 games. He finished with a career total of 311 saves, currently 22nd on the all-time list, but was 5th all-time when he retired.
|Geno Petralli and Alvin Davis.|
That's it for the cards from my original collection. Now on to the recent purchase.
