1982 Donruss - Fergie Jenkins

Number 643 in the second year offering from Donruss is Fergie Jenkins.

In light of the recent pitching woes in Texas and the history of having weak pitching Jenkins looks good. Fergie pitched for four years for Texas from 1978 to 1981. This would be among the last cards of Jenkins in a Rangers uniform.

Donruss did a better job with this set than they did in their first year. There are several things about the design I like. Having the year of issue on the front of the card is a nice feature. The design is simple and most of the photos and colors are good.

On the downside these cards are often off-center. Perhaps the biggest problem with this particular card though is that it is from 1982. Texas could use a Fergie Jenkins caliber pitcher now.
