DONRUSS HALL OF FAME DIAMOND KING ROD CAREW BASEBALL LOW COST FLAT RATE SHIPPING PROVIDED WITHIN THE USA, BUT I WILL SHIP WORLDWIDE AT BUYERS EXPENSE ORIGINAL AUTHENTIC HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE 1992 DONRUSS HALL OF FAME DIAMOND KING ROD CAREW FRAMED BASEBALL PUZZLE The 1982 offering also saw the introduction of the Diamond Kings subset, made up of oil paintings by noted sports artist Dick Perez and were always a fan favorite. Another Donruss innovation for 1982 was the inclusion of jigsaw puzzle pieces with a pack of cards in place of gum. Rodney Cline Carew Born: October 1, 1945, Gatun, Canal Zone Bats: L Throws: R Played for: Minnesota Twins (1967-1978), California Angels (1979-1985) Elected to Hall of Fame by Baseball Writers: 1991 401 votes of 443 ballots cast (90.52%) View Hitting Stats AVG G AB R H HR RBI SB SLG .328 2469 9315 1424 3053 92 1015 353 .429 Biography Rod Carew lined, chopped and bunted his way to 3,053 career hits. His seven batting titles are surpassed only by Ty Cobb, Tony Gwynn and Honus Wagner, and equaled only by Rogers Hornsby and Stan Musial. He used a variety of relaxed, crouched batting stances to hit over .300 in 15 consecutive seasons with the Twins and Angels, achieving a .328 lifetime average. He was honored as American League Rookie of the Year in 1967, won the league MVP 10 years later and was named to 18 straight All-Star teams. He remains a national hero in Panama. Quotes “He has an uncanny ability to move the ball around as if the bat were some kind of magic wand.” — Ken Holtzman From 1982-1991, if you bought enough packs of Donruss cards, you eventually would find all 63 pieces to a special 8 X 10 inch puzzle the company put out each year. Coming at the rate of three pieces a pack, the puzzles added another element to collecting Donruss cards. Besides the base set, collector's had a challenge in finding all the different pieces to the puzzles. After a court ruled that Topps was the only company allowed to have gum included in every pack of cards in all releases after 1981, Donruss had to find something new to include in their cards to compete with their rivals Topps and Fleer. Fleer decided to produce stickers in 1982 and Donruss opted to introduce Diamond Kings and the Diamond King Hall of Famer puzzles. The puzzles came in this order from 1982 to 1991: Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Duke Snider, Lou Gehrig, Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Stan Musial, Warren Spahn, Carl Yastrzemski, Rod Carew and Willie Stargell. Additionally, a Mickey Mantle puzzle was in 1983 Donruss Action All-Stars jumbo cards, a Ted Williams was released in the 1984 set and a 12-piece Yogi Berra can be found in 1985 Diamond Kings Supers. There was also a Berra puzzle released in 1990 Leaf, a Rod Carew in 1991 Leaf and a Harmon Killebrew in 1991 Studio. When the Diamond Kings became their own insert instead of the first 27 cards in the base set, the puzzles went by the wayside, but the several that were produced are great collector's items. The only problem with these puzzles is that they don't always stay together well or sometimes the pieces won't fit together correctly. This is a big problem on Babe Ruth puzzle which was produced on thicker stock than all the rest. But, if you can get these into frames, they look stunning and won't fall apart.
