Donruss Unveils FanFest Designs
Four of the most adored players in Texas baseball history will adorn the three-card
set being distributed by Donruss Trading Cards via wrapper redemption during the
2004 Major League Baseball All-Star FanFest July 9-13 in Houston.
In addition to a Jeff Bagwell game-worn jersey card, Donruss will produce a Craig
Biggio single card and a dual-player card honoring arguably the state's greatest
all-time hurlers, Nolan Ryan and Roger Clemens.
To obtain the Biggio and Ryan/Clemens cards, show goers must open five packs of any
2004 Donruss, Playoff or Leaf baseball products at the company's booth and exchange
the wrappers (five for each card). To obtain the Bagwell card, collectors must
open five packs of premium 2004 Donruss, Playoff or Leaf baseball products. A
list of qualified premium products will be announced at a later date.
"This lineup, in particular, is a dream-come-true for Astros fans, and a great
historical timeline of the team," says Rob Springs, Donruss' director of
product development. "You have the history represented with Nolan Ryan, a segue
into both the past and present with Biggio and Bagwell, and the most recent Astro
with Roger Clemens. All four of these guys are or will be in the Hall of Fame. We
couldn't be happier presenting the collecting public with these unique collectible
cards for MLB FanFest."
