2017 Donruss Optic Baseball Variations Gallery

Staying true to a reputation for having some of the most basic short prints in the hobby, the 2017 Donruss Optic Baseball variations include a few elite players with text alterations and also an image swap for an all-time legend.

Even less subtle than the 2016 set, the 2017 Donruss Optic Baseball Variations are hard to miss with the big nameplate at the top of the card. Nicknames and awards provide the inspiration for the changes. This means "The Mick" instead of Mickey Mantle and "MVP" in place of Mike Trout. While most don't change the image from the base, Mantle is the exception.

Because they were included on the final 2017 Donruss Optic checklist, the uncertainty for collectors is not who the variations are for, but rather, how they are different. That is easily cleared up with our detailed visual guide below.

Although the base versions don't seem to be incredibly rare, collectors looking for more of a challenge can attempt to build the Prizm variation rainbow with available Blue (#/149), Red (#/99), Gold (#/10), Green (#/5), and Gold Vinyl (1/1) parallel versions.
