Donruss Greats Signature – Gold Holofoil – Randy Jones Card (2005)

Here is a newer RJ card. It’s a 2005 Donruss Greats Signature (#66) with the Gold Holofoil (meaning the Donruss Greats logo on the front is gold). I’ve collected baseball cards since I was a youngster. Back in the day it was pretty simple…with the exception of giveaway cards in food, drinks or whatever else the cards consisted of 1 Donruss card, 1 Fleer card, 1 O-Pee-Chee card and 1 Topps card. Later on companies like Upper Deck, Score, Pinnacle, the return of Bowman and many many others would join in. Now there are so many, I can’t even count them on all my fingers and toes. To make things even more confusing is each company has about 8-10 different lines. Not only are there about 8-10 lines for each company but there are also about 5 different runs of the same card with a slight variation. Which brings me to this card….during RJ’s playing days he had 1 Donruss card. In this set alone there are 6 different versions of this same card. It could be the old man in me talking, but it’s not to fun collecting 6 different versions of the same card.
