2021 Donruss Football Hanger Box

2021 Donruss Football: Found some of these in the wild which made me happy.  I was thinking I might not get a chance to bust some of this brand.  This Mahomes was the highlight of the pack so we'll kick it off with him.  Can't say Mahomes is struggling with a 106.1 passer rating but the Chiefs are at the bottom of the AFC West standings which is not something we're used to in the Mahomes era.  Still Mahomes is a favorite of mine.  He's a Texas Tech alum and dude is just awesome.
This is definitely not a design I'm a fan of.  I can't put my finger on it but it just doesn't work for me.  
Plenty of photo variations which will normally be mask shots or sideline shots.  These aren't short printed but still fun alternatives.  
Young players can be found but I expected more than six Rated Rookies in the box of 50 cards.
Elite is in force with Legends (though it isn't listed as Elite but looks like Elite), Elite and Elite Rookies.  So there are Legends in the Elite series.  Not sure why they didn't just put them in the Legends Series.
The Rookies inserts have a good look to them as does the Retro Series cards. 
Even though I don't care for the design this was still a fun box.  The variations, retired legends and inserts give you good variety.

  1. I had a chance to buy a couple of fat packs of this product last weekend, but I could not get the guts up to buy them at the price point. I am going to hope that I can find singles for my collections.

    1. I can stomach Walmart prices but the secondary market prices are too much for me.

  2. Any box with Joe Burrow is a good box!

  3. I'm not a fan of cards with players wearing masks, but I have a feeling that it's a trend that won't be going away anytime soon.

    1. Figure it'll be a thing this year but hopefully we won't see anymore after this.
