What’s Buzz-worthy: The Donruss football line has been a fun one the last few years so this one was the pick from a discount bin. This one doesn’t quite deliver as many inserts or Rookie Cards compared to this season, but it’s got a unique design, though it’s one that feels more blocky and stiff than other designs we’ve seen for Donruss NFL the last couple years. As with a past break of this here long ago, this 2015 release also relies on Elite inserts a tad too much (three inserts in seven packs) and there are very few Rookie Cards per box. You can see the collectable seeds sewn in the 2015 release that were improved upon in the years since. At their discounted prices, these boxes are one to consider mostly for the fun of it — if you like the teaser of what’s to be found here, check out the retail preferred box link above. You’ll get two hits guaranteed (and I think one guaranteed auto) for the price of roughly two of these.
