2001 Donruss The Rookies

Set Type: Primary/Redemption
Card dimensions: 2½” x 3½”
Parallels: Baseball’s Best Bronze, serial numbered to 999; Baseball’s Best Gold, serial numbered to 99; Baseball’s Best Silver, serial numbered to 499.
Inserts: None
Additional Information/14,000 Phillies Commentary: Set was available as a complete factory set via redemption cards seeded in 2001 Donruss, and the set’s design is nearly identical to that used for the Donruss Rated Rookies subset that year. With the exception of Rollins, are the cards in this set are rookie cards. The July 2006 issue of Beckett states that 46,000 sets were distributed, but a post on Stale Gum disputes this number.

Given the way Donruss carelessly tossed minor leaguers into its sets in 2001, Phillies collectors should be thankful that Perez is the only player in this checklist who never actually played with the Phillies in a regular season game.
