The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2015 Donruss Baseball (126 Revealing Pics)

March 6, 2015

Panini America 2015 Donruss Baseball QC (1)

For the better part of an entire year, Panini America’s fabled Donruss Baseball brand has enjoyed a stunning return to splendor. From the breakout success of the 2014 edition to the Series 2 sequel to the late-season launch of an honest-to-goodness, old-school factory set, Donruss made a resounding comeback in 2014 — and it is that momentum that will no doubt propel the upcoming 2015 edition to similar heights.

2015 Donruss Baseball will release in hobby shops across the country on Wednesday bolstered by the nostalgic nods and throwback twists that were so well received last season — such as Rated Rookies, The Rookies, Elite Series, Dominators, Longball Leaders, Production Line, Diamond Kings, Jersey Kings, Bat Kings and so much more.

New for 2015 are the way-cool Rated Rookie Die-Cuts and a fitting tribute to the late Tony Gwynn; 2015 Donruss Baseball also includes base-set variations and the stirring 1981 subset that revisits the classic first Donruss Baseball design.

Each 24-pack hobby box of 2015 Donruss Baseball delivers three autograph or memorabilia cards and a loaded insert/parallel haul that features four 1981, four Rated Rookies, four Diamond Kings, 12 Donruss Preferred, one Elite Series, one Dominator, one Longball Leader, one USA Baseball Collegiate National Team, one All-Time Diamond Kings, two The Rookies, two Stat Line and one Press Proof.

You can check out a little bit of all of that in the expansive Quality Control Gallery that follows. Enjoy the extended sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2015 Donruss Baseball.

    Shaping up nicely Tracy. Love the base card design… Simplistic and elegant! Big fan of the Jersey Kings too!

        It’s on your website. Looks like no Canseco.
        There is a nice dual Griffey Jr. And Thomas, though. Should be huge.

    Glad to see Preferred!!!!! Lovd it

    I am looking forward to this. I loved Series 2 last year that came packing full of fun inserts, first product since the 90’s to have such great ones, and value. Hoping 2015 will be the same
