Donruss has been manufacturing trading cards since 1954, and back then, their cards were based on American pop culture. However, 1981 was the first time the company stepped into the sports cards industry with its first-ever baseball card set, the 1981 Donruss Baseball Card Set.
In the 1990s, Donruss also made their way into the NHL and made hockey cards for the 1993-94 NHL Season. In 2009, the company was acquired by Italian trading card giant Panini. Following this acquisition, soccer cards also became part of the Donruss repertoire.
