Panini Peek: 2014 Donruss Baseball Series 2

July 17, 2014

Panini America 2014 Donruss Baseball Series 2 Main

There’s really only one proper way for Panini America officials to follow up 2014 Donruss Baseball, one of the most refreshing and successful throwback products of the season: With a good, old-fashioned Series 2 offering. So that’s exactly what they’re going to do.

In early August, Panini America will release 2014 Donruss Baseball Series 2 featuring a fresh ensemble of Rated Rookies (including Masahiro Tanaka), Recollection Collection Autograph BuyBacks (including some signed by Anaheim slugger Albert Pujols in a recent session for Panini America) and Turn of the Century Autographs. In addition, 2014 Donruss Baseball Series 2 will reintroduce collectors to the fabled Jersey Kings and Bat Kings memorabilia cards and the Passing the Torch Autographs.

Due out August 6, 2014 Donruss Baseball Series 2 will deliver two autographs and one Jersey Kings of Bat Kings card in every 24-pack box (eight cards per pack). In fact, every hobby box will yield more than 50 parallels or inserts on average.

Other highlights of the product include . . .

  • A brand new checklist with updated player lists in all sets.
  • More than 50 of the top rookies are showcased throughout the program with inserts that include Rated Rookies, The Rookies, Elite Series and Diamond Kings.
  • Jersey Kings return to the hobby for the first time since 2005 featuring a unique design coupled with high-profile talent. Look for a Jersey Kings Studio Series Prime parallel printed on canvas stock numbered to 25, as well as a Bat Kings version.
  • Elite Series inserts numbered to 999 featuring an up-close image, an action shot and a classic Donruss design. What better way to welcome the young crop of talent and say goodbye to a legend?
  • Passing the Torch Signatures makes its 2014 baseball debut with superstar legends, current stars and rookie pairings.

We’ll have plenty more on 2014 Donruss Baseball Series 2 in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, enjoy this extended first look at the product:

    Love those inserts, especially the Passing the Torch. I’m assuming this isn’t replacing EEE though, correct?

    This is nice, giving the initial offering a pretty impressive upgrade. If course, if this is going to supplant Elite Extra Edition you are going to be met with a great deal of resistance from long-time collectors of EEE such as … Myself 🙂
    The TOTC autos have such nice potential.

    Man, I wish you guys had an MLB license. Regardless, I’ll be ripping some with my sons…

    Any plans on doing a bonus RR set via wrapper redemption for Series 2 as well?

    Some pretty big autos in that gallery, probably just the tip of the iceberg too, Thanks Tracy!
