Random Wax: 2016 Donruss Football

I've always liked the 2016 Donruss Football cards so a discounted pack was an easy decision.  The highlight was this Hall of Fame Inducted Class of 2016 card. I had not pulled one in the blaster or retail box I'd opened.  I like the design quite a bit and I couldn't go wrong with Bret Favre.   
 Some decent stars made this a OK pull while Fran Tarkenton was the only retired legend I pulled.  
The design, colors and photos will probably keep me coming back to this set.  The Farve insert was a great card and came as a nice surprise.  

16 – Total Cards
2 – Rated Rookie (1 – Press Proof)
2 – RC (1 – Press Proof)
1 – Hall of Fame Inducted Class of 2016
1 – Base Press Proof
1 – Retired Legend


  1. Love that Favre HOF insert! I really like this set, it's one of the very few football packs/boxes I've bought over the past 10+ years. The colors really pop on these, Kuechly in particular.

    1. Looking back I've posted that Kuechly as part of another pack bust I did. Like you I really like how the colors look.

  2. I really dislike the 1990 Donruss baseball design... but for some reason... the 2016 Donruss football design is rock solid.

    P.S. That Favre card is awesome! Nice pull.

    1. Definitely a nice Farve card. I was never a huge fan but this card is excellent.
