Let's take a look at the Dodgers and a few other PC hits from the box.
Thanks to Dodgers Blue Heaven, I know that I have all nine base cards, but I am missing the Diamond Kings insert of Puig. I did, however, get my hands on a nice looking Power Plus card of my favorite Cuban.
I also was able to land the sweet Adrian Gonzalez Press Proof to add to my A-Gon binder. It is numbered #'d 78/99, and is a welcome addition to the family.
I dig these cards overall, though the lack of licensing is a problem on a few of the cards. Most notably the Michael Young card located in the center of the scan. Panini isn't fooling me; he is wearing a Rangers uni.
I do love that Diamond Kings shot of Harper and I do have an extra up for grabs. On second thought, I will probably be sending that too Judson of My Cardboard Habit, so long as he promises not to play Wrecking Ball on his blog everyday.
The Ortiz cards look great, and the lack of licensing doesn't hurt here at all. The Hall-Worthy card has a nice texture to it, and is a good way to get around the team logo. The blue Elite Series card is also a cool card, #'d 363/999.
Overall, 2014 Donruss is a passable product. Lack of licensing can be a bug and produces some unflattering pictures, but Panini has done a decent job getting around that. The set-list is pretty strong, particularly for my Dodgers. I plan on picking up a few of the #'d Dodgers cards from online, but will wait for the hype to go down a bit.
