Recently I got a sealed box of 2019 Donruss Racing Cards—24 packs, 8 cards per pack. Join me as I go through the entire case, pack-by-pack, to see what awaited me. (Click any picture to enlarge)
PACK 8 OF 24: Top Tier, a Debut Near, and a Sponsor Without Peer
OVERVIEW: 8 pretty solid cards here, including two of 2017 Cup champion Martin Truex Jr. We also get Johnny Sauter looking like he just found out that he’s losing his ride at GMS and yet more Terry Labonte.
SPECIAL SPECIAL: Martin Truex Jr. gives a shoutout to the military on the back of his “TOP TIER” card, which is nice.
IN FOCUS: “Hey, remember that time Mark Martin had an erectile dysfunction pill as a sponsor? Let’s make sure we put that on a card.”
SPOTLIGHT: Christopher Bell, widely considered to be the biggest prospect in the Xfinity Series, gets the OPTIC treatment here. Note that the actual card isn’t rainbow-colored on the bottom right, that’s just a cool side-effect of the picture-taking process.
SCORE: 8 pre-race salutes out of 10
