Just like the game-worn cards, most of the autographs in Gridiron Gear are parallels to the insert sets. One notable exception is the NFL Gridiron Rookie Signatures subset, which takes autographs from the 34 newcomers at this year's rookie premiere in L.A. and places them on cards that look like miniature football fields.
Collectors can also find the same rookies signing cards that look like their pro helmets on NFL Team Rookie Signatures. All of the cards from both sets are numbered to 30 or less.
The Last Word
Finding a hot box is great, but since most boxes won't turn out like this one, it's important to take that into consideration. Fortunately, 2007 Gridiron Gear has improved in almost all areas since last season, so even regular boxes have a lot to offer.
The Rookie Gridiron Gems are still terrific, base card and insert card designs are more attractive than their 2006 counterparts and the value equals or surpasses other products at similar price points. Gridiron Gear embodies what Donruss does best and is arguably the company's strongest all-around 2007 effort to date.
