1986 Donruss All Stars Box!


I only pick up packs at shows and I only really make it to the Reading Show a couple times a year so I'm back with a box and 6 packs for the next couple weeks.

Today at Reading, where Chris will be tomorrow, a dealer had 1980s Donruss All Stars boxes for $4 each or 3 for $10. Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, I plunked down my $4 and walked away. Another dealer said he had not seen 1986 Donruss All Stars since he "cleaned out his garage."

A checklist can be found here.

Best pack:
THREE Hall of Famers! Tony Gwynn, Ozzie Smith, and Eddie Murray

Worst Pack: Jose Cruz, Ron Darling, and Gary Ward.

Best Uniform: Photobucket

The collation sucked. With 108 cards, I got 54/60 in the set. I was also missing one Hank Aaron puzzle card. I did complete the pop up set but many were damaged by the packing machine. One of the six cards I was missing was my boyhood idol, Nolan Ryan.

That said, if you have #4 Dale Murphy, #21 Nolan Ryan, #28 Dwight Gooden, #29 Glenn Wilson, #44 Tom Brunansky, or #58 Sparky Anderson get in touch with me at I have plenty to trade.

It's a little-known fact that between his SNL days and the making of "Coming to America," Eddie Murphy posted Hall of Fame numbers in the Majors. haha obviously you meant Eddie Murray.

No, no, it was Dale Murphy's little known brother (error fixed).
