2008 Donruss Threads Baseball Box Break Review Part 1

2008 Donruss Threads Baseball Hobby Box - Click Image to Close

Hey guys, part 1 of 3 boxes coming soon to drewscards! Christmas Magic!

- 24 Packs Per Box
- 5 Cards Per Pack
- 120 Cards Per Box
- 4 Autograph or Memorabilia Cards Per Box (on average...)

The base set totals at 100 cards, and you should be able to complete the set with one box, but did I, you'll just have to keep reading...

The set is based on former greats of the game and many future greats in prospects, and the big names to look out for that make rare appearances in other sets are Pete Rose & Shoeless Joe Jackson. There are some sweet insert sets, and like Donruss will usually do, there are some numbered, and some not, which can get confusing. But still, they are sweet! Oh shut up Drew, just get to what you pulled right? I know you're all thinking that now, so I'll make you happy.
