What’s Buzz-worthy: The fun trip that is Donruss baseball is here — just not anywhere as in-depth as the hobby break done here that received high marks. You get a guaranteed hit and a few inserts with these blasters, which are fun but not a single serial-numbered card, which is a staple of a hobby box. Check out that past break for more details on inclusions and rip a hobby box if you can — if not, try out a blaster for a start. It’s a fun rip.
