What’s Buzz-worthy: If you hunt the bargain bins like Buzz does atop of your hobby buys, then here's one to watch for right now. There are hanger boxes of 2017 Donruss found in the bins but they're not all the same. These jersey versions (original price $15 -- look for the green striping and green side panels) are in there priced just like the $10 ones that don't include hits. This one delivered pretty well with a hit for Alvin Kamara and a fun assortment of inserts that are the biggest draw here (way more entertaining to me than the blasters). This wasn't a bad break if you just need to scratch that itch. There are a few formats on this site -- from factory sets with a bonus hit if you want to keep it simple or a hobby box with guaranteed hits -- to consider, too. Donruss is a rip that offers you plenty of names, inserts and fun.
