2010-11 Donruss box break #3

So far, I’ve been averaging 3 jersey cards per box. Would my luck hold out on my third box of Donruss?

Results for Box #3

223 Base Cards – Base cards! Yay! Without base cards, there’d be no set to collect, right?

6 Rated Rookies – Darn it! I got some duplicates. I pulled cards of Corey Elkins, Marc-Andre Cliche, Justin Mercier and duplicates of Jeff Skinner, Zach Hamill and Eric Tangradi.

Hits

Dallas Stars “Line of the Times” jersey card – This has jersey swatches from Brad Richards, James Neal and Loui Ericksson. I will admit that this is nicer than the average jersey card.

Boys of Winter Brian Elliott jersey card – A two-color swatch. Decent!

Boys of Winter Matt Moulson jersey card – The dreaded white swatch. I don’t mind white swatches so much–unless they’re put against a white background.

Inserts

2 Tough Times – Basil McRae and Lyndon Byers. Yep, definitely liking these.

2 Ultimate Draft – Hate these.

3 Boys of Winter – Ditto.

1 Ice Kings – It’s hard to read the name due to the (unnecessary) silver foil text. This card is of Darryl Sittler. I wish there were 10 of these per box!

2 Les Gardiens – Jimmy Howard and Craig Anderson.

Parallels

Corey Perry “proof” card – Numbered 27 / 100. These would have been better if the logo was gold foil, and not just the word “PROOF” in the upper-left corner.

Three boxes in, and that’s 9 jersey cards, 3 proof cards, 3 Ice Kings and 3 Fans of the Game.

  1. The Stars jersey card is nice. Has their two All-Stars on it and I still can't believe it was Richards' first All-Star game.

  2. I like the Line of the Times jerseys, but the Boys of Winter set (the base more so than the jersey) is just flat out awful…and the player selection doesn't really help matters there either. There's players that I have literally never heard of.
