1993 Donruss was a 792-card set issued across two 396 card series - the largest Donruss Baseball set to date. Continuing from the previous year's establishment of an updated look and feel to the set as a whole - and to be continually competitive in the Hobby due to higher-quality looking releases across the landscape - base cards featured a glossy finish over a card with white borders, color player photos on the front and back, and team-colored nameplate and logo backgrounds. For the second and final year, the backs of each card were "watermarked" with the Donruss logo, which served as a security device. Further, Donruss upped the amount of pack-issued insert offerings to six, to meet the growing demand of chase cards from collectors that were gripped by the "Insert Mania" that defined card collecting the early-to-mid 1990s.
Player selection in Series Two was heavily weighted towards the two expansion franchises that debuted in 1993: The Colorado Rockies and Florida Marlins.
The lone subset was the brand staple, Rated Rookies (RR) and these cards were scattered throughout the set, spotlighting 20 young prospects in the game at the time.
