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 20 OF 24: Kyle is Rowdy, DW’s Dowdy, and 48’s Proud-y
OVERVIEW: A lot of champions in this set, as well as a father-son combo of Bill Elliott (finally wearing his Coors gear!) and Chase (limited edition, too). Jimmie Johnson, meanwhile, looks very satisfied with himself—something that was pretty rare in 2018.
SPECIAL SPECIAL: Kyle Larson’s Originals card shows how he grew up around the race track. With such a laser-focused life, it makes me wonder how he could make such tone-deaf comments about doing autograph signings. Or maybe it explains it better.
IN FOCUS: I don’t know WHY this Chase Elliott card is limited. I don’t know WHY its limited to 299. And I don’t know WHY the picture of the back turned out so blurry.
SPOTLIGHT: DW’s Retro Rated Rookie card shows off his love of the number 17 in honor of David Pearson. Later in his career he’d show his love of number 43 by starting there in as many races as possible.
SCORE: 6 commercial breaks out of 10
