A shiny favorite among MLBPA collectors, 2021 Donruss Optic Baseball features a Prizm rainbow along with on-card Rated Rookie and Rated Prospect autographs.
Adding more to the equation, there are four “hot boxes” in each 12-box Hobby case. Two of these hot boxes deliver five autographs (instead of two), while the other two hot boxes contain 20 serial-numbered Prizm parallels (instead of 10).
The 1st Off the Line (FOTL) boxes offer three autographs per box along with exclusive Prizm parallels.
