1993 Donruss Triple Play

Year: 1993
Manufacturer: Donruss
Set: Triple Play
Card Number: 188
Card Type: Base

If Donruss' flagship baseball was too expensive for you in 1993 Donruss offered and even cheaper alternative in Triple Play.  I'm sure most of us remember good old Triple Play, 1993 marks the second of the three sets released between 1992 and 1994, before Panini resurrected it in 2013.  Simple in design I think I like the 1993 set the best although the 1994 set had a more mainstream look.  There were a couple inserts you could pull, but Triple Play was pretty bare bones.  Black bordered cards are always tough to keep in mint condition and it's the same with this set.  But the black and red borders do look nice.  The back is pretty minimal as well with another player photo, but only one year of stats, a small blurb and trivia question, and sparse personal data.

  1. The early 90s Triple Play will *always* be better than the cartoony monstrosity of 2013.
