Coffee Break:2022 Donruss Baseball Hanger Box

*gets today's post coffee ready for this blog and takes a bite of bagel. takes a sip and gets this one ready*

Note: Cover your eyes if you don't like Panini baseball...


Yes, you read that right. I love collecting Panini baseball cards especially Donruss regardless of all of the logo photoshopping.

Every year I try to get my hands onto some Donruss and this year I landed a couple of Hanger Boxes so far. Fortunately for me, it's not a flipper friendly product.

Let's see how I did.

*takes a sip, begins to rip*
Every 2022 Donruss Baseball Hanger Box comes with 50 cards which is a lot of base, 6 holo orange parallels, 2 diamond parallels, another parallel and a couple inserts. Each Hanger Box is $15.98.

This years base card design had a redo compared to past versions. It's much more up-to-date and has a 3D appeal.

Back of the base card shows stats for one year and a small writeup.

The base set features players from past, present and future.

Diamond Kings

A retro Donruss design. I am kind of sick of these just like I am with Topps 1987 designs. Let's just make Donruss a product of it's own, no more throwback designs are needed.

and of course plenty of Rated Rookies.

There are 280 cards in the base set to collect.

Now onto parallels which Donruss offers the following,
Holo Blue, Holo Orange, Holo Pink, Holo Purple, Holo Red, Independence Day, Liberty, Yellow, Red /2,022, Career Stat Line /500 or less, Season Stat Line /400 or less, One Hundred /100, On Fire /75, America /50, Presidential Collection /46, Voltage /25, Artist Proof /10, Press Proof /5, Number One 1/1, and Printing Plates 1/1.

Independence Day parallel was the bonus parallel in my box.

Then came the Orange Holos,
My first Orange holo parallel was FIRE!! Doesn't get any better than this!

Then my others. Looks like a couple of Tigers that will be making their way to a new home.

And now the promised Diamond Parallels. Both of mine were inserts which by the way is my favorite part of Donruss,
The Hit List has 12 cards to collect in the set.

Elite Series that has 12 cards to collect as well.

Inserts also have the following parallels,
Diamond, Pink Fireworks, Rapture, Vector, Silver /349, Blue /249, Red /149, Gold /99, Green /25, and Black 1/1.

Both inserts looking great again this year. I still want to pull an Unleashed and especially a Marvel. Those look cool.

Thoughts on my break today welcomed in comments. Another break of Donruss baseball coming up tomorrow and hopefully it will be as good as this one.

*Coffee Card Blogger Out*


  1. The Marvel inserts are the best this year.

  2. This might be the nicest lookimg set they've done since they brought back Donruss. Nice pull on the orange holo Wander Franco. Was great to see Elite Series again. Still remember them being impossible to find in early 90s packs.

    1. They were impossible. I might have one total from those days lol


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
