2004 Donruss Leather and Lumber Gold Black and White parallel

Year: 2004
Manufacturer: Donruss
Set: Leather and Lumber
Card Number: 78
Card Type: Parallel
Parallel Set: Black and White
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 0428/1000

In the mid 2000's companies were competing to see who could come up with the craziest set.  While I wouldn't call the Leather and Lumber a crazy set, as a matter of fact it's pretty straight forward, it does keep with the formula of the time.  Tons of parallels, base parallels, relic parallels, relic auto parallels you get the idea.  The black and white parallel, in which the feature player photo is in black and white, not the card, isn't a true set parallel as only 25 lucky subjects from the base set are featured.  Of course while the base set comes with all sorts of base, relic, and auto parallels so does the smaller black and white parallel.  And like most base cards from sets like this from that era the base cards are designed more for the parallels, hence why Robin is placed on the left side of the card.
