2015 Panini Donruss Value pack

One of the many joys of being a baseball card collector in the UK is that you are fairly unique. So when colleagues from school travel across the pond they now actively search for cards. 
My school had two lovely weeks off, while many others had a single week. I won't go into the details but will say we do extra 'nights' (yes nights) during the term and join all our training days together. 
This colleague, who also a parent, purchased the only cards she could find in Florida. She said this as a way of describing the desperate search she made looking for cards in various shops, including a recommended 'garden' shop. Eventually she bought the last two packs she could find in Walmart. 
I am glad really for any packs and the fact that she actively searched makes me even more appreciative. What my colleague found was a value pack of 2015 Panini Donruss and a 2015 Topps Heritage value pack Sandy Koufax exclusive.   
There are a number of Red Sox base cards and inserts that I still need:
#62 Xander Bogaerts
#151 Pablo Sandoval
#190 Wade Boggs
Inaugural 1981 Edition

#213 Dustin Pedroia
#220 David Ortiz
Rated Rookies                                    
#31 Rusney Castillo
All-Time Diamond Kings
#18 Wade Boggs
#20 Carl Yastrzemski
The Rookies
#1 Rusney Castillo
#6 Anthony Ranaudo

There are 30 Pro baseball Trading cards in the Value Pack.
The pack:
#33 Dalton Pompey Toronto RR
#55 Chris Davis Baltimore
#59 David Ortiz Red Sox
#64 Junior Lake Chicago

At first I didn't like these cards but they are slowly growing on. From the 30 cards there are 7 inserts, all different. Some lovely shiny cards too!

  1. I've been picking a few of the base cards up online, but never saw the inserts, those are nice. I agree, I wasn't a fan at first but am now liking them more each time. I think you got a good pack.
