Do you remember these guys???

Check out the Star of your favourite team... the Face of the Franchise. Do you remember them? Did they turn out to be deserving?

Hahaha, worthy! That's a joke when it comes to Scott Sanderson of the Yanks

Kruck was never that skinny...

At first... when I saw that Donruss chose Baines as the face of the A's franchise, I was sort of surprised. But after looking at the 1991 stats... Baines probably had the best all around stats.

You made my day by reminding me that Scott Sanderson was once the "Diamond King" for the Yankees. :)

Mr. Clark was a deserving choice.

Some stole my thunder but I am going to go ahead anyway.

Lean year for the Yankees.

Jason said...

I can only speculate that the better players on some of these teams had a Diamond King just one year earlier, and Donruss didn't do consecutive repeats back then. Otherwise...why Sanderson, Bell and Phillips? I'm sure in the checklist assignment committee at Donruss they had constant "well we can't make him a Diamond King EVERY year" conversations.

I was waiting for someone to comment on the George Bell Cubs card which was probably the most baffling other than the Sanderson.

Jay Bell of the Pirates was a good choice but they should have used Jeff King. That way it would have been a King Diamond King.

Well, Justice hit the home run that gave the city of Atlanta their first World Championship, so yeah- I'd say so. Felix Jose the D.K. for the Cards? Man, that's a long way from having McGwire or Pujols as the man!
