2014 Donruss ‘The Rookies’ Baseball Box Set Coming Exclusively to iCollectPanini.com
It’s no stretch at all to classify 2014 as a downright magical year for the venerable Donruss Baseball brand. Panini America officials brought the product back with a collector-embraced vengeance earlier this year in a standout Series 1 that refreshingly recaptured the very essence of bygone Donruss releases.
In fact, that product was so well received that a Series 2 release followed in August, providing a well-deserved and updated encore for one of the most successful baseball products of the season. But just like most collectors out there, we’re not quite ready to say “goodbye” to Donruss Baseball just yet.
Panini America officials have created two additional Donruss Baseball releases — the 2014 Donruss Baseball Factory Set and the 2014 Donruss The Rookies Baseball Boxed Set — just in time for the holiday shopping season. Both products are available for pre-sell now at iCollectPanini.com and will begin shipping later this week; The Rookies Boxed Set is an iCollectPanini.com exclusive.
The 101-card The Rookies Boxed Set carries a $25 SRP and includes complete sets of The Rookies from Series 1 and Series 2, The Rookies Update and one autograph. The Rookies Boxed Set autograph checklist includes the likes of Nick Castellanos, Kolten Wong, Jose Abreu and George Springer from Series 1 and Series 2.
The Rookies Boxed Set also features Contenders Rookie Ticket Autographs signed by Abreu, Springer, Castellanos, Xander Bogaerts, Gregory Polanco, Yordano Ventura, Mookie Betts, Arismendy Alcantra, Jake Marisnick, Jon Singleton and more.
The product also includes some of the last Panini America autographs of the late Oscar Taveras, the talented St. Louis outfielder who died in a tragic automobile accident in late October.
Below, we provide a sneak peek gallery of just some of the Rookie Ticket autographs randomly inserted into the 2014 Donruss The Rookies Baseball Boxed Set.
