Nothing around here in Target/Wal-Mart yet so on my day off I drove to the Cities and hit up Three Stars.

Now Donruss is either a player collectors thrill of the chase/worst nightmare kind of set. Lots of parallels, variations, inserts, etc. Here's how I did...

Nice Braun, like the Reggie, and the Castillo is 4/5!

Variations have a black baseball on the back, in addition to a different photo on front...

So I like this kind of set with classic players and HOFers in it, plus I don't mind all the variations. Makes me pay more attention. The number one knock seems to be how much people don't like no logos on the uniforms. Doesn't bother me. Nice set, fun break. We'll see if retail shows up around here soon.
