About an hour ago, Panini announced that the 2018 Donruss wrapper redemption packs arrived earlier this week and have started shipping to collectors.
See the statement below direct from the Knight’s Lance:
Silver-wrapped and hot off the presses, the finished 2018 Donruss Baseballwrapper redemption packs arrived safely and soundly to Panini America HQ earlier this week. Almost immediately, they began making their way to customers who submitted 2018 Donruss Baseball wrappers to qualify for the promotion. Each three-card pack features new 2018 Donruss Baseball cards of Shohei Ohtani, Gleyber Torres and Ronald Acuna Jr.
In addition to base Rated Rookie cards for each player (#’s 281, 282 and 283, respectively), the wrapper-redemption program also includes one variation for each player that includes a different front photo and a unique name treatment. Overall, variations fall roughly one in five packs.
There are also super-rare autograph versions for each player. We’ve provided a quick breakdown of the base cards and variations in the gallery below. You can still participate in the wrapper redemption program while supplies last by sending your empty 2018 Donruss Baseball wrappers to: Panini America, 2018 Donruss Baseball Wrapper Redemption, 5325 FAA Boulevard, Suite 100, Irving, Texas, 75061. Collectors receive one wrapper redemption pack for every 24 wrappers submitted.
The good news for you? Wrapper redemption packs are still available! But, you better hurry! These are sure to dry up soon.
