  • For the Elite inserts, 10,000 cards of each player were printed.
  • 7,500 Nolan Ryan Legends Series cards were printed. Dick Perez did the artwork and the original artwork was presented to Nolan Ryan in a pre-game ceremony at Arlington Stadium on September 9, 1990.
  • 5,000 Ryne Sandberg Signature Series cards were personally autographed and inserted.
  • Card #744 featuring Dale Murphy and Lenny Dykstra is the only card in the set without the Donruss logo on front.
  • Card #678 of Danny Jackson uses the Cubs logo on his jersey in the spot where the team logo normally goes, in the lower left corner of the card.
  • Cards 719, 729, and 735 are sometimes incorrectly regarded as uncorrected errors because the players' uniforms don't match the team names on the cards. The players changed teams after Series 1 was printed, as acknowledged on the back in the transactions sections. Donruss just didn't have photos of them with their new teams.
  • 16 cards per pack, 36 packs per box, 20 boxes per case.
  • 1991 Leaf Preview cards were inserted into factory sets.
  • Cards from the factory set had a different stripe pattern on each card, most often featuring yellow stripes on one side.
  • Ryne Sandberg Elite Signature Series
    As part of the Elite insert series, Donruss had Ryne Sandberg autograph 5000 cards for random insertion in all 1991 Donruss packs. Like with the un-signed Elite cards, many of the cards remain hidden in unopened packs. Despite the announced print run of 5000 cards, this card remains relatively scarce.

The Willie Stargell puzzle insert has two separate checklists - One for the puzzle pieces that have a decimal point in front of the numbers and one for the numbers without. Shouldn't this be one singular checklist with each puzzle card listed with a variation?
