Comments on: Card of the Week: 1982 Donruss #74 Carl Yastrzemski http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/6436 This and that about baseball stats.

I'm also with you on the look of '82 Donruss. Although Donruss made many improvements on the set after it's debut offering in '81, I find it much too childish, as I do many of the Donruss designs in the '80s.

I know hardballtimes.com used to calculate them but they got rid of their stats pages I think. Anyway, one reason for that big discrepancy is probably the playing time. Win Shares has a replacement level of essentially zero, so as long as you play, no matter how poorly, you will accumulate WS. Mauer missed the 1st month and only played 138 games. B-R WAR has them relatively closer, 10.1 to 7.9.

It's not like fashion changed so drastically from 1978 to 1981.

The Red Sox wore a left arm patch in 1976 to celebrate the Massachusetts bicentennial so it's not from 1976.

It's not likely that this was a 1975 card, so that leaves you with 1977 or 1978.

It's not against the Blue Jays, Mariners or Royals because those fields had turf back then and this photo shows grass on the field.

It's not Fenway because Yaz is wearing an away jersey, it's not at Yankee stadium because you can tell by the dugout. And actually this is a park that has the Away team dugout on the first base side which Oakland has. So my guess is that it's in Oakland in either '77 or '78.

The Red Sox had those double-nit pull-over jerseys and pants from 1974-178 and wore the red caps/helmets with the blue brim from 1975-1978. In 1979, the Sox went back to the button down jerseys and the pants with belts.

Don't see too many people with that hairdo outside the 70's.

Donruss made a number of improvements with the 1982 set in terms of quality. First, the card stock for the 1982 set was much thicker. The 1981 set felt as though it was printed on an index card. There were, by a great deal, fewer errors and variations of wording in the 1982 set. Also, 1982 was the debut of the Diamond Kings subset, which was always pretty cool.

The jacket on the guy in the lower right. The black thick glasses on the guy in the upper left. The yellow shirt. The hats.
