DBBD: 1992 Donruss Diamond Kings #DK26 Fred McGriff

Who else remembers the shock in 1992 of how different not only the Donruss product was, but in the difference of the Diamond Kings cards?  As a kid I always loved trying to guess who the "Diamond King" for the next season would be.

1992 Donruss Diamond Kings #DK26 Fred McGriff


  1. I remember that... I loved the 92 and 93 DK inserts. It was so exciting to pull one - even if they weren't always big name stars.

  2. I remember busting packs of 92D trying to build this set. Never did complete it... although I see singles in dime boxes all of the time. I should probably try to build it now. It's such a beautiful set.

  3. I did love that set when it came out - the contrast with the boring 1991 Donruss set was immense. The design of the regular 1992 Donruss set hasn't held up so well over time, but the Diamond Kings remain really great. I remember pulling a Frank Thomas and freaking out over my luck.
