This is the third post showing off packs from our first group break box: 2016 Panini Donruss. Earlier today, we already found our first hit - plus a couple of nice Dodgers' inserts (check my archives). What else will find for the nightcap?
75. Starling Marte - Pirates
67. Miguel Cabrera - Tigers
79. Kevin Pillar - Blue Jays
183. Nolan Ryan - Mets
71. Carlos Gonzalez - Rockies
185. Carl Yastrzemski - Red Sox
The Rookies: 10. Luis Severino - Yankees
1982 Base: 31. Kevin Kiermaier - Rays
That Nolan Ryan card is pretty nice, though I wouldn't have guessed it was Ryan based on the photograph alone. I also really like the camera angle on the Kiermaier card - pretty cool stuff all around.
194. Checklist 78 - 141
Any non-team specific cards will be randomized at the end of the group break, that includes the checklist cards (which are part of the base set this year).
167. Jorge Soler - Cubs
111. Ryan Bruan - Brewers
117. Shin-Soo Choo - Rangers
100. Max Scherzer - Nationals
137. Felix Hernandez - Mariners
Power Alley: 2. Mike Trout - Angels
1982 Base: 20. Dee Gordon - Marlins
That Power Alley card is a nice pull for the Angels (and by extension Play at the Plate who scooped up the Angels as one of his teams). I don't care for the Dee Gordon card as much...with all logos removed, it sort of looks like he is playing baseball in his pajamas.
I think that's it for tonight in terms of group break packs. I'll have more though in the upcoming days - including three more hits out of this box AND three more boxes that I have yet to open. I also have a bunch of posts already scheduled from my 2000 Fleer Tradition box - so that's will be scattered about as well. What can I say? Busy times here at Nachos Grande!!
