Caving for a pack of 2015 Donruss

I'm not shy in saying that I hate the base design of 2015 Donruss. I don't know if a baseball card design has ever brought about anywhere near the violent rage inside of me that this design does. I'm not going to go as far as to say I want to punch the design team in the face.. but if there were a YouTube video of a guy punching them in the face, I would watch that clip a few times.

It's especially frustrating considering it could have easily been so much better with just a couple tweaks.

But screw it, I hadn't purchased any cards from my grocery store yet this year.. and I love to support the fact that my local grocery store carries sportscards.. so I dropped $5 on one of those 30 card jumbo packs. Plus, hey, even if I hate the base, some of the inserts are pretty decent.

Well, here are the inserts. No autos or relics (it seemed like all the packs had been felt up).. not even any serial numbered cards.. kind of a bummer. I'd like to hang onto the Reggie and Kershaw, but the rest are available for trade.

Here's that ugly base I hate. At least I got a few guys I collect, including cover boy Tony Gwynn (yeah, props to Panini for putting Gwynn on the wrapper.. that was cool.)

And here are the rest. These 15 are available for trade.. just let me know.


  1. Man those are some ugly cards.

  2. It is all about the inserts and numbered cards with that set. I like Donruss.... /cringes as everyone in the blogosphere shakes head in disgust.

  3. I liked Donruss, since they were trying to give us something besides Topps. But, I was turned away when I bought a 30 card value pack from Target and got 23 cards and a fat, blank cardboard space filler. That was enough for me.
