2004 Donruss Classic Membership

Card Manufacturer: Donruss
Card Set: Donruss Classics
Year: 2004
Card Number: M-17
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Membership
Card Attributes: Serial numbered
Serial number: 1818/2499

Just like American Express says, "Membership has it's privileges."

Of course one might wonder what membership we're talking about here.  Membership into the Hall of Fame? Membership at Costco?  No this card commemorates  Robin joining  the exclusive 3000 hits club.  There are a few milestones in a baseball players career that look really good on the HOF resume and getting into the 3000 hits club is one of them.  Robin ended up with over 3100 when it was all said and done.

Another great insert from 2004 Donruss Classics. Of course the base insert here is a little underwhelming, but there are relic, auto  and relic-auto versions of this insert.  The base insert is still limited to 2499. Or course that's nothing nowadays, but back in 2004 that was still pretty rare.  Not that I would want this card less limited than it is, but it would have been a nice touch if it had been serial numbered to 3,142.
