I actually have every Donruss flagship set in my collection and even put together the "2000" set that was inserted in 2001. There is a 1999 set done similarly that I never put together but who knows maybe some day. So when I heard there would be a set in 2014, the first since 2005, I was kind of excited. I was looking forward to seeing the cards and maybe building the set. When I went to my LCS, they were out of the cards and I started questioning if I was going to go after the set.
Yesterday I went into Target to see if Heritage had made a surprise appearance and while there was no Heritage, there were 2 retail boxes of Donruss. I quickly scooped up 10 packs without thinking and thought I would share the contents with you.
The Press Proof parallel is the gold variety numbered /99. Odd that Kennedy is in his D-back uniform but the team is shown as San Diego.
Yes I have decided to go after the base set and knowing me I will probably chase the inserts as well. I suspect I will pick up a Hobby Box sometime soon and see how close I can get. Then I will post a want list and be on the prowl. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
