Random Wax: 2019-2020 Donruss Basketball Hanger Box

2019-2020 Donruss Basketball:  Back when there was actually new basketball product left on the shelves I had picked this up.  These boxes have 50 cards.  No Zion here but I do have one of his Donruss cards from a previous pack.  Can't wait to see young stud Trae Young of my Hawks back on the court.  A first-time all-star this year he gives fans and the franchise hope for the future.
There are also green flood parallels in these boxes.  The green works great with Irving in a Celtics uni though he is actually on the Nets right now.
I kind of like the Changing Stripes inserts showing players in both their old and current unis after changing teams.  So will Russell's card next year show him in three different unis since he's already been traded to the Timberwolves?
Thirteen rookies were in this box of 50 cards.  That's a better percentage than the two fat packs I've opened where there were five rookies in a 30 card pack.
This was a good box.  If I'd known how many rookies were found in these I definitely would have grabbed more of these when they were first available.

50 – Total Cards
13 – Rated Rookie
3 – Green Flood Parallels
2 – Franchise Features
1 – Complete Players
1 – Changing Stripes

    1. I think it is a nice card. At first the green through me off but I'm digging it. I don't pull near enough of his cards so this was a nice surprise.

  2. Nice box. Can't even begin to imagine how much these hanger boxes are selling for these days.

    1. Believe me it's ridiculous. I left so many NBA cards on the shelves. I try not to be greedy and leave stuff but if I'd known it would have been hard not to clear out the shelves every time I saw NBA cards. The markup now is crazy.

  3. It's always nice to see a new LaMarcus card, even if I'll never be able to chase them all down.
