2017 Panini Donruss Optic

When Topps puts out its Chrome set each year, all of my complaints about their flagship set seem to melt away. The cards just look good. But without logos, Panini's chrome version of their Donruss set just looks a bit like, y'know... polishing a turd.

102 - Jose Altuve - While you were reading this, Altuve just got another base hit. And another!

159 - Ken Griffey Jr. - Griffey used to play for those beloved Seattle Seafoam Aquas.

117 - Miguel Sano - This could easily be a Nationals uniform, but it's not.

47 - David Paulino Pink Prizm - This pack came from a blaster, which makes me the real sucker. Each blaster pack (on average?!) contains a pink Prizm parallel.

9 - Nolan Arenado - Admittedly, the Diamond Kings cards do look better with the Chrome Optic treatment.

Yep. Lipstick on a pig.

I concur.

Well at least the Optic name is better than the Prizm name it was formally known as.
