Bo Jackson, 1990 Donruss Diamond Kings


Name: Bo Jackson
Team: Kansas City Royals
Position: Outfield
Value of card: Six gallstones in a glass beaker
Key 1989 stat: One player, one card set, two expressions
So, what does Bo Jackson the sarcastic Diamond King stand for?

Brilliant use of muted colors
Only the finest paints the world has to offer

Just the right amount of emotion caught in his expression
Art that belongs on a museum wall
Critical praise has been heaped upon this rendering
King is too pedestrian a term for a card of such high value
Sophistication has been a hallmark of this acclaimed series
Ostensibly a portrait of Bo Jackson, but so much more
Novice artists could learn a thousand things from breathing in this card's beauty
