Card Spotlight 8-13-10

1981 Donruss #282 - Rusty Kuntz

Rather than make jokes, I'll leave you to fill in your own name jokes about this card. They are all over the web, if you look hard enough. It's more a joke about the player's name than the card itself.

My day has been mostly filled with weather related headaches, so I'll keep this post brief. All things considered, the 1981 Donruss set was pretty decent looking for a first attempt. The card stock wasn't the greatest, but it has held up over the years. The photos were slightly better than Fleer's 1981 offering. The player selection was halfway decent.

After all the years, the design is recognizable. Plus, you get to see the disco collared shirts of the White Sox.

I have a feeling that you will be hearing much more about Rusty Kuntz in the blogging community before the year is through. Call it a hunch.

This was a great design and has grown on me over the years

I'm kind of a fan of '81D and I am happy to say that I have that card signed.

Rusty is an axcellent guy and I am glad to see him back on the Royals staff.

Ah, yes. Many fond memories of heckling Rusty from the front rows of the left field bleachers in Oakland back in the 80's.
