Roberto Alomar, 1991 Donruss Diamond Kings (Dreadful Diamond Kings Week No. 6)


Name: Roberto Alomar
Team: San Diego Padres
Position: Second base
Value of card: One paint stain
Key 1990 stat: One thick eyebrow, one thin eyebrow
I don't get it: You may be asking yourself, "OK, you half-wits, what makes this card so dreadful?" First off, words can be hurtful, ma'am. But second, you're right. This Diamond King ain't so bad. The muted background color is a nice respite from the blinding 1980s backgrounds the Kings had featured. There's no poorly drawn "in action" player in the bottom right. Robbie's making a normal face, even if his eyebrows are a little uneven. In fact, you could say that this illustration is the spitting image of Roberto Alomar.
