Donruss issued some pretty bland designs in their first 4 years, however something happened in ‘85… I suspect they changed creative directors. The new design was bold: a black border with complimentary red striping. They also created the iconic Rated Rookie logo that year.

I made this with the two most popular cards from the ’85 set: Clemens & Puckett rookies.
