First Look: Donruss Americana II


People loved Americana. LOVED IT. It was one of the first sets to be completely focused on celebrity autos and memorabilia, and it really didnt disappoint. It was structured very much like Absolute, so the price point wasnt bad for four hits.

Well, as you can probably guess, they wanted to do it again. Here comes the sequel, please dont feed it after midnight.

My only suggestion when releasing a sophomore version of a blockbuster set is to NOT MAKE IT THE EXACT GODDAMNED THING!! DLP has forgotten this golden rule and basically released series two of 2007 Americana. What the fuck were they thinking? The cards look exactly the same, down to the same subsets. Go find the sell sheet, you'll see what I mean.

Oh, and one more thing. What is the reason that every fucking set under the sun now includes at least one Boxing or UFC/MMA subset? Im curious why this has become so huge with 2008 products. I mean, last time I checked it was 2008 CoSigners BASEBALL, not 2008 CoSigners CLUSTERFUCK.
