2015 Panini Diamond Kings

Without a doubt probably one of the best baseball products Panini has produced to date. Resurrecting the old Donruss we get a great art card set with some pretty nice inserts and hits.  I recently picked up a couple packs from the LCS and this was by far the best one.  Seriously everything featured was in one pack.

The checklist has HOFers, current players and a nice selection of rookies.

I ended up getting a Lou Gehrig Iron Horse insert.

Also in the pack was this red framed Dave Bancroft.  Dave entered the HOF by veterans committee in 1971.  He was a player back in the 1910's and also was a player manager in the late 20's.

I knew the back was going to be good when I saw how thick the middle is.  While mini relics aren't new, having them stand alone is.  I guess Ultra Pro is going to have to make a thicker tobacco card top loader now.

Overall a pretty great pack with 2 inserts and a hit, plus 2 rookies.

NIce set but I just noticed it suffers from Crotch Logo.

Are you interested in selling the Wong relic?
