    Call me nuts: putting together a MASTER SET of 1990 Donruss

    There hasn't been much in the way of promo cards which I have interest in picking up since summer and although I still love collecting them, I want to start another "unique/ weird" collection.

    So since I like error/variation cards and fondly remember 1990 Donruss as a kid, I'm thinking of starting a complete MASTER SET of this.

    I think there's well over 700 corrected errors/ variations in this set assuming every card has the "Inc." And "Inc" variations.

    I'm in absolutely no rush to complete this and would buy a box here and there, singles here there.

    But I have a few questions.

    Are there any variations which are actually harder to find? I don't recall seeing any of the Ryan cards without a card number all these years.

    Does every card have the "Inc." Variation and are they possible to find in all pack types?

    Thanks

    INC & INC. variations (all cards I believe)



    Also, factory set has front ink splotches in different patterns than pack issued cards. I believe all cards as well.



    Blue/White Test

    Speaking of... the Grand Slammers set has at least 13 different border splotch variations that I've found (Will Clark). I had a stack of about 150 Clark Grand Slammers cards and found those differences. Some of them, at least in what I have, were significantly less plentiful than the others.

    Going through some rack packs and noticed most were "Inc." Except maybe one card each pocket was missing the period.


    I'll probably just limit my search to cards which came out of packs and factory sets. As for the test cards, I'll leave those for you player collectors.

    I've already started digging through my common boxes picking out the one time pricey variations like the Juan Gonzalez, glavine, Ryan's, all stars and my favorite the Harold Baines all star with FOUR errors!

    I've thought about that but wouldn't be able to get myself to spend real money on the drabek and whitten variations, let alone the impossible A* B* versions certain players.

    I also wasn't into 91 topps as a kid, more ud, other sports cards, school and partying......But I have several hundred variations from 91 topps picked last few years.

    Some players have more than 2 variations.

    This is the All-Star subset card. I assume a 4th variation exists of INC & No *Denotes Led League.
    All cards have the same splotch pattern on the front.

    Puckett's base card in #269 , never able to verify that the *Denotes Led League is missing from this card.
    Puckett's MVP card is #BC-8 , never able to verity that the *Denotes Led League is missing from this card.
    This variation might only apply to the All-Star cards. I have 6 Ozzie Smith's and all are missing the *Denotes Led League.

    I'm still not one hundred percent sure just how many different versions there are of each all star card.

    At minimum, each all star card has four: "recent...." : Inc & Inc.
    "All star game....." : Inc & Inc.

    Buuuuuut......

    Some have the missing on the front and then corrected. Do THOSE have Inc variations meaning there's actually EIGHT??

    And the Baines card is a whole different animal.

    But should be fun

    Maybe I shouldn't have thrown those 90 Donruss I had in the trash. I still have an unopened wax box in my small unopened box collection.

    I think when I did all my variation for those donruss cards for my O'neill collection I remember onionring being a bing help. I think that's his user name, the McGwire guy. He was a big help for my variation collection. I couldn't believe these cards had been around for years before I realized these variations exists.

    You are doing it the right way though, taking your time. I went searching and buying up the ones I needed and the whole time I had the majority of the ones I needed right in my own collection. The were put away in different collections and or storage. Good luck with this!

    That's funny! Last night I specifically searched out onionrings site looking to see what he has for Macs.
