I love this logo. From 1981, the year of Donruss’s inception until roughly 1991, I always looked forward to every Donruss release.  During the past two decades, I had lost interest in the brand, however when I saw the basketball and hockey releases for this season I got very excited.  So when I finally got a chance to pick up a pack at Walmart, I had to see them in living color.

So I decided instead of a single wax pack, I want to go jumbo and went with the 40 card pack.  I was shocked when the price came to five bucks.  That’s the price of most hobby packs nowadays.  So I opened the pack and here is a look at the best cards of the pack:

3/5 of the 2009-10 Kentucky starting line-up.  I got four of the Production Line cards and the best was the Curry card.  The Gasol Emerald die cut card was nice as well.  The cards look great, a nice modernization of the 1984 design.  I even love the back of the card as they went with the 1984 back design even:

For comparison of what the original 1984 design looked like see this Mattingly rookie card from the set:

Of course the best surprise of the pack game in this SICK WALMARTJO!!!

Ok so it’s not the sick mojo I was bragging about, but it’s still a nice card of a Hall of Famer.  I’ll definitely keep this one for my personal collection.  Overall I have to give this pack a 5/5.  Really do like this set and I’m fairly sure I’ll be buying more product.

What do you think about it?

    Love the set, think that the hobby boxes are overpriced at the moment for what you get. When they drop to $40 or so then they’ll be worth it.
