Daniel Ray Ainge 1981 Donruss

Before there was Bo there was Danny Ainge. Danny Ainge was a professional basketball and baseball player who played in the NBA for the Boston Celtics, Sacramento Kings, Portland Trail Blazers, and Phoenix Suns, and also in Major League Baseball for the Toronto Blue Jays. He was really talented. He wasn't that good of a professional baseball player, but he was very young when he came up in the majors. The Celtics ended up buying out his baseball contract with the Blue Jays. Even when Danny got with the Celtics they claimed he wasn't that good. But he had so much talent and with hard work he ended up being a fairly decent player. It makes me wonder what would have happened if he would have stayed with baseball?
In 1981 Donruss lauched itself into the Baseball Market. The cards are printed on thin stock and more than one pose exists for several popular players.
