1987 Donruss Opening Day
The 1987 Donruss Opening Day set is comprised of 273 cards measuring 2-1/2” x 3-1/2” each. Donruss took a unique approach with this issue as each card features a player in the starting line-up of all teams on Opening Day 1987. The front of each card bears a posed or in-action color photo framed by a maroon border. A team logo is placed atop each photo while the respective player’s name and position are printed within the lower border area. Teams in the same city share a checklist card. The series is highlighted by cards of Jose Canseco (#24), Fred McGriff (#38), Robin Yount (#58), Ozzie Smith (#65), Ryne Sandberg (#75), Cal Ripken, Jr. (#133), Mike Schmidt (#160), and Kirby Puckett (#221), as well as by the rookie cards of Will Clark (#96), Barry Larkin (#191), and Bo Jackson (#205). The card for Barry Bonds (#163) was originally printed with an image of Johnny Ray but was corrected early in the press run with less than one percent of the sets thought to carry the mistake.
