July 19, 2017

Panini America 2017 Donruss Optic Baseball Teaser2

As if Panini America’s live-today and already-sold-out 2017 Donruss Optic Baseball couldn’t get any hotter, well, it does. Turns out that four hobby boxes in every 12-box case are Hot Boxes — two that deliver five autographs (as opposed to the normal two) and two that deliver a staggering 20 numbered Prizm parallels. As you’ll see in the Teaser Gallery below, we were lucky enough to crack one of each.

You know the product includes Aaron Judge autographs and marks the celebrated hobby return of the legendary Mickey Mantle. But before we take you pack by pack through two boxes of the product, we wanted to share a few other things you should know about the product.

  • In addition to the base set and variations, The Mick is featured in Diamond Kings, Masters of the Game, and The Elite Series.
  • Cody Bellinger appears in Optic Autographs, The Rookies and Rated Rookies. His Rated Rookies card is his first Panini America Rookie Card.
  • Retail Blasters will deliver six exclusive Pink parallels per box. The base set, Diamond Kings and Rated Rookies will have the Pink parallel.
  • Retail Fat Packs will deliver four exclusive Purple parallels per pack. The base set, Diamond Kings and Rated Rookies have the Purple parallel.
  • Rated Rookies Base Autographs and Rated Rookies Signatures are featured in 11 versions: Base, Holo, Aqua, Orange, Blue, Red, Carolina Blue, Black, Gold, Green and Gold Vinyl.
  • Rated Rookies, Diamond Kings and base cards have 13 Prizm parallels: Base, Holo, Aqua, Orange, Blue, Red, Carolina Blue, Black, Gold, Green, Gold Vinyl, Blaster Pink and Fat Pack Purple.

    How does a box with 2 autos on average produce 5 autographs. I hope I ever get so lucky to get a box like that but that is some odd collation.

      Nevermind, just read the header stating that there will be several hot boxes per case. No that is a way to draw people into collecting. Great idea from a long time ago is back!!! Love it!!!

    Wow those 5 auto boxes are huge, great chase incentive for was breakers and a big draw to pull the trigger on a whole case. Thanks Tracy!
