Throughout the course of my card collecting days I've grown to appreciate many different sets. I never had a personal preference as far as brands go so because of that I appreciated everything from Topps to Fleer, Upperdeck and Pinnacle (RIP). Out of every set I have had the pleasure or receiving through purchase or trade Not has captured my imagination quite like the Donruss Diamond Kings series did. In my opinion no card represented what Cards should look like more then those. The job of baseball cards is to forever capture that moment in time in a players career and I felt like this set did that combining baseball with art in to cards that looked like mini portraits.
It gave collectors like myself an alternative to be different and not just always buy Topps. Back in 2003 growing up as a kid I used always go down to Hollywood Collectibles And one day I remember purchasing my 1st ever pack from the 2004 set of Diamond kings. I got a Vladimir Guerrero (Montreal Days), Deon Sanders, Carlos Delgado and a Luis Castillo. I have some of the older cards from 91,92,93 they are just timeless cards.
|Don't have this but cerftainly want it|
If your one of the people that are collectors that read my blog and you are looking to trade Diamond Kings are the quickest way to get me to agree on something. I don't care if it's base cards, Jersey or Auto the cards themselves to me are worth it. If you are in the possession of ANY Diamond King Autographs and are looking to trade please comment hit.
All in all great Timeless set that I wish they would bring back they were good for the hobby.
