Elite Series Inserts?
I wish you guys were allowed to put logos on the cards. It’s a shame that MLB won’t let you, even though you have MBLPA rights. I love the 1981 design, but without the logos, it leaves a lot to be desired.
I love the look of the inserts! Especially the 1981 subset! 1981 was a great year as competition came to the hobby-not to mention different bubble gum! While the gum and wax used to seal the packs did mar a card or two per pack, Donruss’ gum was the absolute best of the three!! It was soft and had at least a minute’s worth more taste than Fleer’s or Topps of the time.

I’m diggin’ it. I love the base cards actually, and the DK’s and Rated Rookie inserts. Sweet!
Looks like another great year of Donruss is on tap, thanks Tracy!
I hope 2015 is as great as 2014 was, that was one amazing product.
Are the “Original Donruss Buyback Autographs” going to continue to be called the Recollection Collection and be stamped as they were last year?
