reprints 2001 Donruss.jpg


Since Ken Griffey, Jr. was under an exclusive autograph contract to Upper Deck, Donruss was unable to have him autograph any of his DKR cards. Since he was the only player unable to sign, Donruss simply made a special un-autographed parallel numbered to only 89 copies, to round out the set. As mentioned in the listing for the regular DKR's, the Griffey, Jr. is an un-corrected error, as the card reprinted was in the 1990 Donruss set, not the '89 one.

2001 Donruss was interesting

Set features the twenty top home run hitters from the 2000 season. Each is numbered to 1000 copies, with a die-cut Season Production parallel numbered to the home runs hit (listed below in parenthesis) in the 2000 season.

  • LL-8 Ken Griffey, Jr. 40

No doubt yours is legit, was mostly looking for insight as to why one would be #/40, I've never seen that and with "40" of them out there figured I would have 🤷🏼‍♂️

Here is a pic. NOT MY CARD.
