Aqueous Test

*
*

Donruss developed a high-gloss, or "Aqueous" test worry prior come the official printing the the base collection that were no intended to be exit to the public. This Aqueous test cards were the same to the 1990 Donruss base set except for three features:

Identifying Fakes/Counterfeits:

Only 264 the the 716 basic cards officially have actually an Aqueous check "parallel" as just two details 132-card sheets were published for this test run:

236 base cards 9 Diamond King subset cards 9 Rated Rookie subset cards 10 MVP subset cards (only accessible in factory sets)

These cards came about because Donruss was experimentation out new card coatings/finishes the were less harmful to the setting than ultra-violet (UV) coatings, which supplied toxic chemicals to produce the glossy complete to cards. The trial and error of this new coating - determined as "aqueous" in the printing market - was provided by Donruss to study the viability the this end up on cards. Aqueous coatings space water-based (hence the name), less harmful to the environment, and also produced a semi-glossy complete to a card (though no as glossy a finish as a UV finish). Today, aqueous coatings are the preferred an approach of using gloss to ink ~ above sheets the cards.

According to Hobby legend, this cards were issued in packs, however they weren"t released to the public in general distribution. Numerous boxes were purchased through a map shop as soon as a previous Donruss employee - a packaging director - marketed them off in addition to some various other Donruss unopened wax boxes. Among some the the late-"80s and also early "90s Donruss wax boxes were a couple of plain white cardboard boxes with a memo, something come the effect of "Donruss Canada" created on the side. This boxes consisted of 1990 Donruss cello packs which to be loaded through the Aqueous cards. Various other unopened Aqueous boxes claimed to have turned up at a card shop in the Midwest.

In late August of 2012, one eBay seller offered eight unopened Aqueous packs for $200-$250 each. According to a few of the buyers, this packs included 15 cards and one puzzle piece also though the wrapper stated only ten cards in every pack.

The PSA collection registry official acknowledges the slightly over 5000 full Aqueous Test copies exist (i.e., roughly 20 duplicates of every player). This adheres to a natural progression the the conventional Catalog, which officially stated roughly 2000 - 2500 back in 2005.
