Frustrating Fleer

A couple of weeks ago I sent a bunch of Dodger Stadium cards to Garvey Cey Russell Lopes. When he got them, he noticed that the picture on Damon Berryhill's 1991 Donruss card was actually from 1989, not 1990. Things like that are a bit of a pet peeve for me. I've always believed that a card set should be a chronicle of the previous season. Therefore, all photographs should be from that season.

Berryhill's card was not the only one with a 1989 picture. Steve Balboni's card is clearly from 1989 as well, as Don Slaught, who is on deck, was a Pirate in 1990.

It's a shame they didn't use that picture on his 1990 Fleer card, it is a lot more interesting than the one they did use that year. This is actually one of the most interesting cards in that snooze-fest of a set.
