Old School Hits: 2002 Donruss Studio Private Signings

vmartautoWith the fourth of July less than a week away, I thought I’d showcase a hit from a product described as “a Star-Spangled Tribute to America’s Pastime,” 2002 Donruss Studio. The base cards featured the traditional Studio-style portrait shot of each player with Old Glory and some shots of the player’s home city in the background.

Randomly inserted into packs of 2002 Studio (and 2002 Donruss The Rookies) are Private Signings inserts. Private Signings is a 210-card skip-numbered set featuring autographs of the game’s top veterans and prospects. Each card is serially numbered to 250 or less, with the bigger stars being produced in much smaller quantities (usually 25 or fewer). Some of the big stars found in this set include Roger Clemens, Chipper Jones, Vladimir Guerrero, Frank Thomas, Pedro Martinez, Carlos Beltran, Manny Ramirez, and even Rickey Henderson.

This Victor Martinez card is numbered out of 250.

  1. I always wondered who at Donruss thought silver stickers were attractive.
