1988 Donruss Baseball's Best

Just in case you thought I was bullshitting earlier about Donruss figuring out that there was a world full of suckers ready to pounce on anything in 1988, let me offer this set up as Exhibit A. Case closed, the glove fits, Colonel Mustard did it with the lead pipe in the kitchen. Fleer released a set of Baseball's Best in 1988. It contained 44 cards. Donruss issued one as well. 336 cards.

That's right. It's not a typo. 336 cards. Baseball's Best. 


The 1988 Donruss Baseball's Best Detroit Tigers:
13 Doyle Alexander
35 Darrell Evans
69 Mike Heath
91 Mike Henneman
125 Willie Hernandez
147 Chet Lemon
181 Jack Morris
203 Gary Pettis
237 Matt Nokes
259 Frank Tanana
281 Alan Trammell
293 Walt Terrell
315 Lou Whitaker

At least the gaudy orange and black motif fits with the Tigers.....
