Group Break: 2004 Donruss Studio

Let's get the morning started in the studio.  Donruss Studio, that is. 

10 packs of 5 cards yielded 46 base cards, including:

White guys just aren't cool.  Alfonso Soriano: cool.  CC Sabathia: fat, but cool.  Preston Larrison: dorky as hell.  Preston, whose name is, perhaps, more unfortunate than his smile, was born in Aurora, IL.  This is further proof that the only cool people to come from Aurora, IL are Wayne and Garth.  I dig the Duke Snider and Will Clark.   I commend Donruss on completeing f-ing with time and have Duke in front of a modern skyline.  Don Mattingly is clearly not impressed.  A word of advice to Preston: take notes from Donnie Baseball.  The easiest way to improve your baseball card is to not smile and to have a moustache.

There was one Fans of the Game card...

...of a guy whose parents didn't know how to spell "Dennis".  It's not Penis with a D.  It has two N's.  The best cards in these packs were 3 Studio Stars inserts, which are plastic-ey and rounded like credit cards.

Very nice for the Red Sox, Tigers, and Astros.

Since we're on the topic of Donruss, how about a pack of 1991 Donruss.  This si the pack you've all been waiting for, I'm sure.

Alotta Blue, that's for sure.  I scanned the puzzle pieces upside down.  They go to the Pirates since it is a Willie Stargell Puzzle. 

Whoa, 666 base cards.   Creepy.
