1. Crisco
2. WD-40
3. Maple syrup
4. Four egg yolks
5. Leave-in conditioner
6. Bubble-blowing liquid
7. Baseball rubbing mud
8. Green slime
9. Eye of newt
10. Single malt whiskey

He may have applied the following substances to the ball as well. I can't help thinking that '88 D-Russ would have looked better green.

Given the year, another great item for your list would have been "Soul Glo" made famous by Eriq La Salle's character in "Coming to America".

Two Soul-Glo references in successive comments! Great minds think alike.

Jeffrey - Agreed. The Rookies set, with its alternative color scheme and glossy finish, blows their regular set away. I also have some Baseball's Best, another glossy 1988 Donruss product that has orange borders. They're also pretty sharp.
