I've opened quite a bit of the 2017 Donruss Football in the different options including a hanger box. This one was in the discount bin at the local Wal-Mart. The green colored hanger boxes are key as they guarantee a hit. I grabbed a Christian McCaffrey Rookie Phenom patch last time I opened one of these. This box's hit, Cincinnati WR John Ross, doesn't bring the same excitement as McCaffrey but a hit is a hit. Bottom line is I like this set from the base design, photos and variety. The retired legends is also a big plus for me. The only negative would be the lack of position on the cards.
Tons of variety in these boxes and I really enjoy the "Kings" cards so finding these is always fun. I'm a Joe Thomas guy so this Salute to Service card was a fun pull.
There are so many different inserts in this set and these boxes allow you to see most of them but there are even more subsets I didn't pull.
I didn't grab a Patrick Mahomes III rookie but this set has plenty of key rookies to offer including Mitch Trubisky, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, Deshaun Watson, and Leonard Fournette just to name a few.
The variety will definitely be a big plus for those who are looking for more than just base cards.
I had a good pull from this box. There was plenty of star power even if I didn't see some of the key rookies you'd want to find. I don't doubt I'll grab more of this set as I get the opportunity.
