There are many things about next week’s release of 2015 Elite Baseball that longtime brand loyalists will expect from a product that’s been a baseball-card industry staple for almost two decades, including such inserts as Throwback Threads and Back 2 Back Jacks, an array of colorful parallels and a stacked roster of autographs and memorabilia. But a few twists — most notably the Collegiate Elite insert and the random insertion of on-card autographs from 2015 Prizm Baseball that missed packout for that product — should generate a new level of excitement for a release that appeals equally to veteran collectors and newcomers alike.
For many passionate baseball fans, the official first pitch for the 2015 collecting season comes Wednesday with the release of Panini America’s 2015 Donruss Baseball. A collecting staple for more than 30 years, the Donruss Baseball franchise has long been one of the most endearing aspects of any new season. The packed 2015 edition promises to be no different.
