Back this year, after a successful 2014 is a base Donruss release from Panini. I was skeptical last year, as many seemed to be, but the release became a popular nostalgic release. Currently, Topps has an exclusive license with Major League Baseball to use team names and logos in their product, but they do not have exclusive rights to the players. This release is MLBPA licensed, though, so you will see your favorite players and cities, but no team names or logos. I’d prefer it had the full license, but I’ll take whatever alternative we can get right now.
The 2015 Topps Heritage release pays tribute to the 1966 Topps edition. It’s not one of my more favorite sets, so I’m less excited this year, but it still does what it sets out to do. Once again, the release pays homage to the original set, containing short prints in the style of original errors, as well as the style of subsets. There are even a couple of surprises this year, including the “gum stain” cards, which even have a faint scent of bubble gum.
Following in the pattern of recent years, the 2015 wwe release once again follows the style of the regular baseball release for the year. It gives the set a more main stream feel, rather than just being relegated to the non-sport category.
This was originally advertised with two hits per box, but the box itself does not mention how many. Each box contains 24 packs of 7 cards, but some hits are thicker, so there may be fewer cards. Autographs seem to fall roughly one in every two boxes, while the remaining hits consist of shirt, mat, sign and athletic tape relics, along with Diva Kiss Cards.
