From The Pedro Binder
2001 Donruss Class of 2001
I don't know what to think.
My first impression is that the card looks choppy. It feels like it's broken into a bunch of pieces. The picture. The red arc on the left. The white arc on the bottom right. The red arc in the corner. The baseball on the bottom. Nothing seems to flow together. It's all visually disjointed.
It's not really my cup of tea.
But, Donruss probably didn't care about that. This was just a set to be put out at the very end of the year to try and capture some hot rookies in another card set. And, of course, they tossed in some start to make it worth out while. Like Pedro here.
Because there is nothing special about this card. It could be any other card made that year. It's just a way to pump out as many cards as humanly possible.
So, I suppose they succeeded. I have this card now.
But it's not a great one.
