2008 Donruss Threads - Silver Century Proof

Year: 2008
Manufacturer: Donruss
Set: Threads
Card Number: 29
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Silver Century Proof
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 037/100

As I've stated before this last year's haul from COMC's Black Friday sale concentrated more on filling in holes and picking up fairly common cards, but I did manage to snag a couple low numbered parallels for the collection.  Next up we have one of Donruss' last issues before being bought by Panini.  This was also before Topps got exclusivity on the hobby, but Donruss made this set without a MLB license or an MLBPA license.  And still got away with using true team colors and partial logos.  This was before Upper Deck pretty much made sure that wouldn't happen again.  For an unlicensed set it's not bad,  the overall design is nice I like the baseball rounds in the corner, but for the most part the card is pretty simple and they sure didn't waste any money putting too much information on the back of the card.

  1. I do the same thing with filling holes for Black Friday. That's a good looking card for unlicensed
