Description

1984 Donruss is a 660-card set. The attractive card front designs changed considerably from the previous two years. This set has since grown in stature to be recognized as one of the finest produced in the 1980's, largely due to the design, but mainly due to the limited production and rookie card selection.

The first 26 cards in the set are again Diamond Kings (DK). A new feature, Rated Rookies (RR), was introduced with this set with Bill Madden's 20 selections comprising numbers 27 through 46. Two "Living Legend" cards designated A (featuring Gaylord Perry and Rollie Fingers) and B (featuring Johnny Bench and Carl Yastrzemski) were issued as bonus cards in wax packs, but were not issued in the factory sets sold to hobby dealers. The seven unnumbered checklist cards are listed at the end of the list below.

Variation cards apparently resulted from a different printing for the factory sets as the Darling and Stenhouse no number variations as well as the Perez-Steele errors were corrected in the factory sets which were released later in the year. The Diamond King cards found in packs spelled "Perez-Steele" as "Perez-Steel."

Rookie Cards in this set include Joe Carter, Don Mattingly, Darryl Strawberry, and Andy Van Slyke. The Joe Carter card is almost never found well centered. Other popular cards in the set is Eddie Murray (#47), Robin Yount (#51), George Brett (#53), Nolan Ryan (#60), Pete Rose (#61), Cal Ripen Jr. (#106), and Ryne Sandberg (#248)

Errors and Variations

Diamond Kings 1-26 error cards read "Perez-Steel Galleries" at the bottom on the backs of the DKs. The 'Steel' error variations came from packs and were later corrected to the rarer "Perez-Steele Galleries" in factory sets.
