The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: The Flagship 2017 Donruss Baseball

March 1, 2017


Panini America’s fabled Donruss Baseball franchise is more than just the company’s flagship hardball release. It’s also the quintessential way to begin any baseball collecting season. Boasting a bevy of old-school niceties (such as variations, Rated Rookies and Diamond Kings, to name three) and just enough new-school flair (including the new Whammy chase insert), 2017 Donruss Baseball arrives next week as a robust, red-white-and-blue reminder of everything that rocks about collecting a new season.

The many staples that have made Donruss Baseball a collecting icon for more than three decades return for 2017, including the aforementioned Rated Rookies and Diamond Kings as well as Signature Series autographs, The Rookies, Dominator, The Elite Series, Masters of the Game and more. 2017 Donruss Baseball also provides a bevy of SP and variation chases highlighted by nicknamesblack-and-white photography, Pink Back and Blue Back versions, Aqueous Tests and more.

The product releases in hobby shops across North America one week from today and, on average, each hobby box (eight cards per pack, 24 packs per box) will deliver three autograph or memorabilia cards. You can familiarize yourself with a little bit of everything 2017 Donruss Baseball has to offer in the revealing Quality Control Gallery that follows.

Enjoy the preview and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.

    You produce very few baseball sets a year and you still can’t do on card autos? Or is it just for the super expensive sets, which you are good at panini.

    This has easily been one of my favorite products the last couple of years and this year looks just as good. Hopefully any box I open this year over produce in hits like they have for me the last couple of years.

    These cards are amazing – you made the set Understandable and thus very collectible. The inserts make sense and they are well thought out and designed. Glad you brought back the Prospects set. This is the best baseball set in years.
