2003 Donruss Studio Enshrinement

Year: 2003
Manufacturer: Donruss
Set: Studio
Card Number: E-8
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Enshrinement
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial number: 056/750

The Hall of Fame theme for some of Robin's cards is one I enjoy.  I'm very proud that my favorite player of all time is a member of the exclusive club with the likes of Babe Ruth, Roberto Clemente, Duke Snider, and Jackie Robinson to name a few.  And over the years card companies have taken just about any chance they've gotten to feature players in that theme.  It's a sure fire win for any insert set when you get to feature HOF members.  Donruss' 2003 Studio set features this Enshrinement insert which features 50 greats in the Hall.  And the majority of the subjects were also alive at the time, as is evident by the large number of subjects also featured in the autograph version of this card, 34.  There is also a proof version numbered to just 20 and Robin's autograph parallel is numbered to just 5.  Heck this base card is numbered to just 750 which even today is a pretty low print run.  The autograph would have been placed over the Inducted 1999 part of the card.
