Junk Box Break: 1986 Donruss

Part One:

Part Two:

Base Set: 388 of 660 (58.79%)
161 Doubles
6 Triples

1 Full 63-piece Hank Aaron puzzle.

And to think, I got all these cards for about the price of a Blaster!

I love old wax. I refuse to call it 'junk', but 'vintage' implies there's value in it. I call it "retro".

Late '80s and early '90s Donruss may have sucked, but the boxes and packs themselves always looked cool! I have a couple old Donruss boxes (and all 36 packs) sitting on some shelves in my 'man cave', just for aesthetics. It's freakin' sweet.

That's too much video for the moment. Could anyone tell me if he got a Canseco or not?

God, what an ugly set. I'm pretty sure staring at the design for too long caused seizures.

But spot-on with the Max Headroom reference. That's what I call it on my blog.

That's awesome, there were some die-hards who loved that Canseco card. Before '89 Upper Deck, that was definitely the best card owned by any kids I knew.
