2017 Donruss hobby two pack break

With a look inspired by an updated take on 1990 Donruss, the base cards are sharp, though still otherwise feel generic - maybe my small sample size of two packs doesn't quite tell the entire story, but it's hard to buy into these cards when they don't really stand out.

Pack one
#117 Ryan Braun

#74 Kyle Schwarber
#131 Odubel Herrera
#89 Nolan Arenado

#TP-2 Austin Meadows - The Prospects

#RV-24 Khris Davis - Retro Variation
#194 Yu Darvish

#RV-15 Mike Trout - Retro Variation

Pack two
#116 Giancarlo Stanton
#73 Jon Lester
#130 Marcus Semien

#88 Tyler Naquin

#29 Edwin Encarnacion - Diamond Kings subset
#158 Adrian Beltre

#RV-29 Johnny Cueto - Retro Variation
#149 Matt Holliday

Nice looking Naquin card! Love my Indians and cards of them. Too bad that EE card is not of him in an Indians uni.

I just commented on another blog about how unique of a picture was on one of the cards and I get to do it again. So many cards we've all seen over the years and that Austin Meadows has an image like I don't recall seeing. Very well done by the photographer and whoever selected the image.

Gah, why do all the '83 retros have the same color border? Donruss didn't do that!!!
