I can imagine. In the dark days before the internet, my #1 baseball resource was the back of baseball cards. Before I started buying complete sets, I kept my all of my cards in alphabetical order. When I was watching a game on TV and a question about a player came to me, I'd grab my shoeboxes and see if I had a card of the player. Hopefully I did, and the back would usually answer the question.
Maybe that is why I never really liked what Donruss put out for baseball. As far as I was concerned, they got off to a really bad start in 1981 with this...
Change finally came in 1992 when Donruss switched to the glossy white cardstock like Upper Deck. Unfortunately, though a new design was used, the dreaded "Recent Major League Performance" tag was still there.
In 1994 the tag disappeared!! But....Donruss didn't include complete year by year stats. Instead, taking a giant step backwards, they went with just the '93 season
In 1995, Recent Major League Performance returned.
