Over the past year I've opened a fair amount of Donruss. So much so I accumulated most of the set and a lot of the autographs. Combine that with a nice eBay win of 12 auto lot back in the summer I decided I'll make an attempt to complete the Donruss Signatures set. The checklist consisted of 50 autos, but only a few carry high secondary market value. If the set included the likes of Bryce Harper and Mike Trout I wouldn't have even thought about it. Here is the list.
At the time of release the younger guys like Tavares, Bogaerts and Billy Hamilton carried most of the value. I actually pulled Tavares and Bogaerts and Billy Hamilton was a redemption so it was pretty easy to cherry pick that one off of eBay for a cheap price. Thankfully he fulfilled the obligation and I have that in hand.
This past week I was able to knock what is probably the most expensive auto in the set and one of his teammates.
Off the top of my head I'm only missing 6 of the autos. I'm waiting on a few auctions to end and some COMC sellers to get back to me. One that I know I haven't seen is the Adam Laroche. I'm not sure if they even made that one. I believe the only redemptions were Starling Marte and Billy Hamilton which I have and were filled very quickly.
Overall this has been a fun project that should be easy to put to bed as long as the cards come to market. I should have a better idea of what I'll need by late next week.
