A Rare 1990 Donruss Card?

Maybe rare is the wrong term for this Carlton Fisk card that I recently purchased from COMC.com.  It certainly is more rare than the 1990 “Red Death” Donruss base set, but I don’t know if any card produced by Donruss in the “junk wax era” can be called rare.


1990 Donruss Learning Series #49, Carlton Fisk

Produced for elementary and middle-school students, the Learning Series was a factory set that was sent out to schools as part of a push to educate children and the role baseball has had in the history of America.  The set consists of 55 cards, all of which have different photos than the base set.  I haven’t been able to find out exactly how many sets were produced, though I am sure the number is over 10,000.

While the front offers a different photo, along with a Donruss Learning Series logo, the back of the card is exactly the same with different numbering.

I don’t want to ignore the beauty that is 1990 Donruss, so here in all their glory, I present the other 1990 Donruss  Fisks:


#58, (Base)


#BC-19, (Bonus MVP)


#5, Best of American League

Aside from the rare Aqueous, Blue, and White Test cards, I can close the books on 1990 Donruss.
