Default 1986 Donruss Customer Service

I bought a factory sealed set of 1986 Donruss Rookies today. When I opened it up, I found the card pictured (don't recall it being in the set I opened back in 1986). I called the first number and it connected me to some medical alert company, and the second was not in service. Now I'll never know what happened to Betty or Doris, but their names and legacy live on!

Would that be considered a Betty and Doris Rookie?

The Set Registry line made me laugh out loud (I'm neither young nor cool enough to say LOL).

Probably far rarer than any other card that came out of those packs!

The top active set only has 50% completion. Nobody cares about 1986 Donruss. Oddly enough, there is a retired set that was at 100% completion.

In all seriousness, this needs to be somebody's mission: finding out who Betty and Doris are.

They need to be interviewed - I want nothing more from this hobby right now than to hear their stories about dealing with irate 1986 Donruss customers. That could not have been a fun job, but they stepped into the breach nonetheless.

Default Funny Story

Years ago my job involved interviewing people who wanted to work for a large employer in D.C.

So, I was interviewing this one guy back in the mid-90s. He said on his paperwork that he worked for a company called Leaf in Tennessee, and that his boss was a man named Don Ross.

Collecting cards as I did, I paused and said "So Don Ross was your boss?", and he said, "well that was the name on all the boxes we shipped out".

It was all I could do to keep a straight face.

Wow, I hope you didn't hire him.

There was a collector, I believe based out of Michigan, who wrote a ton of letters to the editors for both BHN and SCD. His name, unless he did that as a joke, was Don Ross.

Betty could be Merian Elizabeth Harrison Wilbanks, died 2007, who "retired from Donruss Candy Company in Memphis with 23 years of service."
