Donruss has to pay the bills…

So they are quickly releasing 2008 Donruss Americana just months after the ’07 release.

Product details:

15 boxes per case, 1 pack per box, 4 cards per pack

In the pack you will receive one autograph or materials, 1 insert/parallel, and two commons.

Here’s the thing, it seems Donruss didn’t learn their lesson the first time around with flooding the market with worthless parallels because from what I could tell (or understand), there is a lot of parallels in this set.

Parallels

Commons (#’d to 499), Century Silver (#d to 50), Century Gold (#’d to 25), Century Platinum (1 of 1), Century Gold Signatures (#’d to 50 or less ?), Century Platinum Signatures (1 of 1), Century Materials (#’d to 50 or less), Century Prime Materials (#’d to 50 or less), Century Signature Materials (#’d to 50 or less), Century Combo Materials (#’d to10 or less), Century Combo Prime Materials (#’d to 10 or less), Century Combo Signature Materials (#’d to 10 or less), Century Combo Signature Prime Materials (#’d to 10 or less), Hollywood Icons (#’d to 200), Hollywood Icons Gold (#d to 25), Hollywood Icons Platinum (1 of 1), Hollywood Icons Gold Signature (#’d to 10), Hollywood Icon Platinum Signatures (1 of 1), Hollywood Icon Cuts (#’d to 100), Hollywood Icon Materials (#’d to 50 or less), Hollywood Icon Prime Materials (#’d to 50 or less), Hollywood Icon Signature Materials (#’d to 10 or less)…..you know what? Fuck it. Donruss, this is exactly why you lost your M.L.B license. Out of those parallels I slaved typing, there are still 37 more parallels for a total of 60 parallels.

Yeah, good luck Donruss. I officially hate you.

(I wouldn’t mind that Brando card, though)

  1. At least it looks like the 08 Americana is better than the 07 junk.
    I was so exited for the 07 Americana release and when it finally came out I watched a Beckett Box Busters video where they busted 3 boxes-That product was a bust indeed, it was filled with no names and even the auto and movie used items where mediocre at best.
    Donruss should come out with a film gangsters card set with nothing but the best actors from gangster films from the 1920s to the present-Now tell me you wouldn’t want to pull an Al Pacino blood stained butterfly shirt piece auto from the Scarface movie!
    That is a product I would buy for sure——–
    Donruss, are you listening!?!?

  2. Who wants a Burt Reynolds card? The Grace Kelly card is nice and we both know you are drooling over the Marlon Brando…. movie used patch. As Jerry would say, you have a man crush on him. 😉
