1996 Donruss Series 2 hobby box

Contents

Description

1996 Donruss is a 550-card set issued in two series of 330 and 220 cards respectively. The full-bleed fronts feature the player's name is in white ink in the upper right, and the player's team and uniform number in a foil "box."

One of Donruss's main selling points was that all non-parallel inserts were serial-numbered, with each waxbox yielding at least one.

This would be the final Donruss product released as an independent company, as it was purchased by Pinnacle Brands in May. It would also be the final year Dick Perez would produce the Diamond Kings.

Rookie Cards in this set include Mike Cameron.

Distribution

Series One Hobby: 36 packs per box, 12 cards per pack (MSRP: $1.79).

Series Two Hobby: 18 packs per box, 12 cards per pack (MSRP: $1.79).

Retail: 12 cards per pack.
