2016 Donruss Optic!

Jason Heyward DK Purple Refractor.. 
It's so pretteh.  I picked up one of them there $9.99 "Value" packs, which, for this release anyway, are actually just a fat pack with three packs worth of cards plus a pack of exclusive parallels all in one instead of separate.  Probably saves on packaging, or at least on the amount of crap being thrown out after you're finished.
Hard to tell by the scan, but this is a refractor..
I'm not going to get too deep with this post, because I think I'm gonna to post the pack to APtbNL sometime in the next couple days if I don't get lazy.  So for now, I'm just showing the keepers, of which there were surprisingly many.
These two are base..
The first thing that caught my attention when I found out about these not long before they came out were the chromed out Diamond Kings, and they do not disappoint.  It certainly didn't hurt my enjoyment that a full quarter of the pack was comprised of these beauties.  I'm all in on piecing together a set of them, plus *any* parallels I can get my saucy little mitts on (I'll accept base Donruss DKs & their parallels too).  So if you have any for trade, I WANT THEM. I want them all...
Kris Bryant Purple Refractor!
My keepers weren't all Diamond Kings, however.  I leave you today with the big hit of the pack: The above KB purple refractor!  Epic score for a Cubs fan on an extremely limited budget like me.

In summation, these cards are great and you should get you some (and send me all of the Diamond Kings you pull).  I know I'll be getting more when I'm not so heinously broke.

That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by!

Until our next...


  1. Nice pull with the Bryant (and the Heyward too)! I'm getting more and more tempted to sample this product.

    1. I guess it all comes down to how much you like Panini and how much you like Chrome cards. I am an admittedly easy sell.

  2. Big score on the Bryant! Nice job!
