One of my favorite Panini baseball products is Donruss. It's affordable and can pack a punch. Maybe not so much retail wise, but hobby wise, the stuff is pretty solid in my opinion.
Since I couldn't afford a hobby box and missed out on 2017 Donruss completely, I said, I am so digging in for 2018 and picked up a rack pack.
Each rack pack comes with 30 cards for the $4.98.
I pulled three Yankees for my PC including Mickey Mantle. Panini included a ton of name variations this year. For those of you who complain about Topps doing that, Panini said hold my glass for that one. I liked how they did the name variations in the past making them actual tough pulls, but this year there is simply too much.
Here is another nickname. I believe this is a sepia parallel but couldn't read my wrapper once I tore it.
Diamond Kings has taken a facelift change every year. I am not too much of a fan of this design however.
This, this is what Donruss baseball is all about. Throwback design. I think Panini should use the throwback designs for the base cards. They could throw it back like Topps does with Archives.
I hit this blue parallel of the throwback. It's a very similar parallel to the ones found in 2015 Panini Americana. A tiny bit shiny but right to my liking.
I found a few things with this years Donruss I wasn't completely a fan of , but I still like the product. The hobby boxes from what I see still pack plenty of fun and are reasonably priced. I may still try to get my hands onto a box.
What do you guys think about 2018 Donruss?
