1989 Donruss Diamond Kings

Year: 1989
Card Manufacturer: Donruss
Card Set: Baseball
Card Number: 5
Card Type: Base - subset
Subset: Diamond Kings

I don't know if there is a more iconic card from the junk wax era than Diamond Kings.  I'm a big fan of art cards and Dick Perez.  Mix in Robin Yount and we have a home run.  This is the second of Robin's 3 Diamond King cards. His first was in the 1984 Donruss set and then in 1993 Donruss he was in the Diamond Kings insert set. 

A great card.  Perez did a great job on the likeness.  The background still freaks me out a little.
