A pack of two cards from a 12-card set were sent to Hobby dealers to promote the upcoming 1990 Donruss Baseball set.  The set was sent ONLY master distributors and to those dealers who purchased directly from Donruss. Therefore, this is one of the more difficult promo sets of the era.

'''NOTE:''' The preview set can be rather difficult to identify due to the lack of any "PREVIEW" markings.  
+
The backs of each card are white with the words "1990 PREVIEW CARDS/No. XX of 12".

Many of these errors were due to the fact that Donruss outsourced production to multiple printing facilities, some of which had never produced baseball cards before.

Donruss produced a high-gloss, or "Aqueous," test issue.  The set is identical to the 1990 Donruss base set, with the exception of the glossy coating on the front and the words "AQUEOUS TEST" on the back. There are 264 cards in this set as only two of the 132-card sheets were printed.
  
145 Tom Glavine

According to Hobby legend, these cards were issued in packs, however they weren't released to the public in general distribution. Several boxes were purchased by a card shop when a former Donruss employee, a packaging director, sold them off along with some other Donruss unopened wax boxes. Among the late-80s and early 90s Donruss wax boxes were a few plain white cardboard boxes with a memo, something to the effect of "Donruss Canada" written on the side. These boxes contained 1990 Donruss cello packs which were loaded with the Aqueous cards.

===Aqueous===
 
 
 
Donruss produced a high-gloss, or "Aqueous," test issue.  The set is identical to the 1990 Donruss base set, with the exception of the glossy coating on the front and the words "AQUEOUS TEST" on the back. There are 264 cards in this set as only two of the sheets were printed.
 
 
 
According to hobby legend, these cards were issued in packs, however they weren't released to the public in general distribution. Several boxes were purchased by a card shop when a former Donruss employee, a packaging director, sold them off along with some other Donruss unopened wax boxes. Among the late-80s and early 90s Donruss wax boxes were a few plain white cardboard boxes with a memo, something to the effect of "Donruss Canada" written on the side. These boxes contained 1990 Donruss cello packs which were loaded with the Aqueous cards.
 
  
 
Other unopened Aqueous boxes claimed to have turned up at a card shop in the Midwest.

In late August of 2012, an eBay seller sold eight unopened Aqueous packs for $200-$250 each. According to a few of the buyers, these packs contained 15 cards and one puzzle piece.

Not much is known about the 1990 Donruss Blue & White Test cards.  It is believed that these cards -- which have a rendition of a 1990 Donruss card, but with blue borders on the front, and an all-white card on the back -- were never intended to be released.
  
259 Phil Bradley

228 unique cards have emerged, with some being double-printed (DP).  It is believed that the fewer than five or six copies of each card exist.

This year's subject for the Donruss Puzzle was Carl Yastrzemski.  Due to licensing issues, each pack of 1990 Donruss Baseball was required to contain a three-piece "panel" of a 63-piece jigsaw puzzle.  When assembled, the puzzle featured an original Dick Perez painting of Yastrzemski.  The assembled puzzle appears on card #588 in the base set.

Description

At 716 cards, the 1990 Donruss set was the largest set produced by Donruss to that time. The card fronts feature either a posed or action shot of the player. The card borders are bright red. The card reverse is horizontal and similar to previous Donruss sets, featuring up to 5 years of career stats, personal information and career highlights.

There are two subsets, Diamond Kings (cards 1-27) and Rated Rookies (28-47). The Diamond Kings are art cards from the Perez-Steele Galleries. Cards of players who were 1989 All-Stars have an All-Star logo on the front. The set also features several commemorative cards: #643 Mike Schmidt "All Time Greats"; #659 Nolan Ryan "5,000 K'S"; and former Baseball Commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti, who had passed away in 1989.

The set was the largest ever produced by Donruss, unfortunately it also had a large number of errors which were corrected after the cards were released. Most of these feature minor printing flaws and insignificant variations that collectors have found unworthy of price differentials. There are several double-printed cards indicated in our checklist with the set indicated with a "DP" coding. Rookie Cards of note include Juan Gonzalez, David Justice, Sammy Sosa, Larry Walker and Bernie Williams.

A pack of two cards from a 12-card set were sent to Hobby dealers to promote the upcoming 1990 Donruss Baseball set. The set was sent ONLY master distributors and to those dealers who purchased directly from Donruss. Therefore, this is one of the more difficult promo sets of the era.

The backs of each card are white with the words "1990 PREVIEW CARDS/No. XX of 12".

Base Set

NOTES:

  • There are different versions of the checklist cards. The checklists inserted into packs account for the 26 pack-exclusive MVP inserts ("a" in this checklist below); while the factory set checklists ("b") do not.
  • Most of the All-Star cards have one of two errors (or in the case of Harold Baines's AS, combinations both). Some AS's have the words "RECENT MAJOR LEAGUE PERFORMANCE" on the back, instead of the proper "ALL-STAR GAME PERFORMANCE." The other error involves the yellow star on the front the card had the black line running through it instead of the star "sitting" in front of the line behind it.
  • There is a variation where the period behind the Inc. in the copyright statement is missing.
  • The black and white "splatter" effect is different between cards that come from the factory set vs. cards that were pulled from packs.
  • Some player's birth dates were not corrected until the factory set.
  • On the copyright some cards have a period after " © 1989 LEAF, INC.", while some do not.

Many of these errors were due to the fact that Donruss outsourced production to multiple printing facilities, some of which had never produced baseball cards before.

Aqueous Test

Dave-Smith.jpg?id=c09afca3-a50c-4634-a708-c6009466655c&size=original&side=front&.jpg Dave-Smith.jpg?id=c09afca3-a50c-4634-a708-c6009466655c&size=original&side=back&.jpg

Donruss produced a high-gloss, or "Aqueous," test issue. The set is identical to the 1990 Donruss base set, with the exception of the glossy coating on the front and the words "AQUEOUS TEST" on the back. There are 264 cards in this set as only two of the 132-card sheets were printed.

According to Hobby legend, these cards were issued in packs, however they weren't released to the public in general distribution. Several boxes were purchased by a card shop when a former Donruss employee, a packaging director, sold them off along with some other Donruss unopened wax boxes. Among the late-80s and early 90s Donruss wax boxes were a few plain white cardboard boxes with a memo, something to the effect of "Donruss Canada" written on the side. These boxes contained 1990 Donruss cello packs which were loaded with the Aqueous cards.

Other unopened Aqueous boxes claimed to have turned up at a card shop in the Midwest.

In late August of 2012, an eBay seller sold eight unopened Aqueous packs for $200-$250 each. According to a few of the buyers, these packs contained 15 cards and one puzzle piece even though the wrapper stated only ten cards in each pack.

Blue & White Test

Not much is known about the 1990 Donruss Blue & White Test cards. It is believed that these cards -- which have a rendition of a 1990 Donruss card, but with blue borders on the front, and an all-white card on the back -- were never intended to be released.

228 unique cards have emerged, with some being double-printed (DP). It is believed that the fewer than five or six copies of each card exist.

This 27-card, oversize parallel of the Diamond Kings set was available through a mail-in offer detailed on the wax packs. It was available directly from Donruss for $12 and three 1990 Donruss wrappers. Each card measures 4 7/8" by 6 13/16".

In addition to the 26 Diamond Kings, a jumbo sized Nolan Ryan "King of Kings" card was also included in the set. Like all Super DK sets, singles remain sought-after by through-the-mail (TTM) autograph collectors.

This 26-card set features the most valuable player from each team was randomly inserted in all 1990 Donruss packs. The cards were printed at the same rate as any of the other base cards. The factory sets were distributed without the Bonus Cards. Early printings depicted Tom Glavine on John Smoltz's card. This was corrected very early in the production run.

Grand Slammers is a 12-card set. One card was inserted into each 37-card cello pack and an entire set was included into each factory set. The set honors those players who connected for grand slam homers during the 1989 season. The cards are in the 1990 Donruss design and the back describes the grand slam homer hit by each player.

Carl Yastrzemski Puzzle

This year's subject for the Donruss Puzzle was Carl Yastrzemski. Due to licensing issues, each pack of 1990 Donruss Baseball was required to contain a three-piece "panel" of a 63-piece jigsaw puzzle. When assembled, the puzzle featured an original Dick Perez painting of Yastrzemski. The assembled puzzle appears on card #588 in the base set.

There is a variation, in which all the pieces have a dot in front of the number. But, like with most variations in this set, few collector's care.
