What’s Buzz-worthy: Here’s another break of a 2017 Donruss baseball blaster — a good break in general 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 and this one delivered as it should but this box isn’t as flashy as some others previously found here. The Bryant MVP card is probably the best card in my mind, though a short-printed Trout doesn’t hurt. Overall, this is one of the low-end baseball brands this collector has busted the most this year. Poke around here on The Buzz to see other breaks of this one.
