Donruss is back for another year. Will Panini surprise us with a Series 2 like they did in 2014 or not bother like they did last year? Who knows?
The one thing Panini sure didn't do was shake things up. Pretty much all the inserts they brought back for the 2014 and 2015 releases are featured in this set again.
Studio. Huh this guy again. For some reason I'm a fan of the Studio inserts. Maybe it's because Panini really doesn't have to do any airbrushing or color changing.
The one of the new inserts are the Donruss 1982's or D82's. I got Paul Goldschmidt.
Like all major releases there are plenty of parallels to find. I ended up pulling a nice bubblegum pink D82 Trout. Not too shabby.
When I buy retail I'm not looking for hits. They are few and far between, but it's always nice when you find one. I had to go look up Snell here. Blake has won some pretty significant minor league awards the last two years and was promoted to the Ray's 40 Man roster this year. And from what I've read is a promising young talent. Plus that's a decent size swatch.
