Extra Edition

230.jpg?id=1d8a9d77-9d38-42d3-9054-aa1778c8fb8c&size=original&side=front&.jpg 230.jpg?id=1d8a9d77-9d38-42d3-9054-aa1778c8fb8c&size=original&side=back&.jpg

The last 50 cards in the 2001 Donruss Elite base set (cards 201-250) were dubbed the "Extra Edition" and issued as exchange cards for unspecified rookies and prospects. The odds of finding an Extra Edition redemption card was 1:14/packs. Each exchange card had a number from 201-250 and cost $5.99 to redeem. As part of the program, the final checklist would not be revealed until after the November 1st, 2001 expiration date.

This program was not well received by collectors, and forced Donruss-Playoff to announce in late October a provisional checklist and to extend the deadline to January 20th, 2002. The checklist would be revised and the expiration date extended a second time.

Mark-Prior.jpg?id=9859a24a-bcae-4475-bac9-016fb28b17f0&size=original&side=front&.jpg Mark-Prior.jpg?id=9859a24a-bcae-4475-bac9-016fb28b17f0&size=original&side=back&.jpg

In April, 2002 Elite Extra Edition began fulfillment with Donruss-Playoff releasing final production figures. All cards that D-P sent out were serial-numbered "XXX/1000" on the front but were mailed out in random order, meaning that, for example, although Donruss-Playoff said that only 556 of Mark Prior's DEEE card were redeemed, some collectors received a Prior card with a serial-number greater than 556 -- which defeated the whole purpose of the serial-numbering.

In February 2002, Donruss-Playoff announced that all remaining cards were destroyed; however in ensuing years, future D-P baseball releases would have a fair number of 2001 DEEE "buybacks." In addition, a number of DEEE's without serial-numbers have emerged. You can draw your own conclusions on that.

NOTES:

  • Because of the "pay-for-redemption" nature of these cards, all cards that would have otherwise been considered true rookie cards, have been designated as "XRCs" by Beckett.
  • Each card is serial-numbered to 1000. The production figures listed below are what Donruss-Playoff announced were distributed. However, as explained above, these should be taken with a grain of salt.

The first 100 serial-numbered copies of the 50-card rookie subset (cards 151-200), is paralleled with a die-cut and (for 48 of the 50 cards) an on-card autograph of the player. Many players, including Albert Pujols, did not return their cards in time for inclusion in the product and therefore were available as redemptions (all of which expired May 1, 2003). Cards 195 and 198 (Ichiro and Tsuyoshi Shinjo, respectively) were issued without autographs, as both players were under an exclusive autograph contract to Upper Deck.

Chicago Collection

At the March 2002 Chicago Sun-Times Show, if a collector opened a Hobby box of 2001 Donruss Elite Baseball box at the Donruss-Playoff corporate booth, they would received a card from what Donruss-Playoff called the "Chicago Collection".

Chicago Collection cards for the first 150 cards of the base set were produced and each was serial-numbered to five.

These certified autograph cards were made available as a compensation by Donruss-Playoff to collectors for autograph exchange cards that the manufacturer was unable to fulfill in the 2001 season. Each card is serial-numbered of 100 on front. Unlike most Donruss-Playoff autograph cards from 2001, the athletes signed the actual card rather than signing a sticker (of which was then affixed to the card at a later date). The cards first started to appear on the secondary market in April, 2002.

  • 238 Alfredo Amezaga 100
  • 241 Ed Rogers 100

Passing the Torch Autographed

Randomly inserted in packs, this 24-card set is a full autographed parallel of the regular insert set printed on double-sided holo-foil board. Whereas the base version has a yellow/gold color scheme, the autographs are red/pink. Cards with single players were serial-numbered to 100 while those with dual players were numbered to 50. Like all autographs in this product, each card is embossed with a 2001 Donruss Elite stamp for authenticity.

Nearly all of these cards were not available in time for insertion and packed out as exchange cards which expired May 1st, 2003. Wade Boggs, Todd Helton, Stan Musial and Nolan Ryan were the only players to return their cards in time.

The redemptions for cards #PT-23 and #PT-24 and some of card #PT-22 were accidentally labelled as part of the 2001 Donruss Elite Football product. In addition, redemptions for card 22 were available for both baseball and football. "22 baseball" was fulfilled with the Nolan Ryan / Pedro Martinez card listed below; while "22 football" was redeemed with one of the Nolan Ryan /Roger Clemens cards.

Football Exchange

Like most Passing the Torch Autographs, these four cards packed out as redemptions; however, the exchange cards were erroneously labelled as coming from the 2001 Donruss Elite Football set. The four cards listed below were produced to fulfill these "football" redemptions.

Three different card #22s exist. One is a Nolan Ryan / Pedro Martinez dual autograph that packed out as a baseball redemption (see above). The other two #22s were "football" redemptions. One pictures Nolan Ryan on the front and Roger Clemens on the back, while on the other Clemens is up front and Ryan is on the reverse. Both cards are serial-numbered to 50 copies; however it is unclear if this is the aggregate production for both Clemens/Ryan cards, or if 50 copies of both cards were produced. The Ryan(front)/Clemens(back) is sequentially-numbered "22FB-l" while the Clemens(front)/Ryan(back) is numbered "22FB-n".

Roger Clemens was not featured in the non-autographed Passing the Torch insert set, and it's believed that Clemens was commissioned by Donruss-Playoff to fulfill these football redemptions.

The redemption cards for #PT-23 and #PT-24 were also mistakenly labelled as football cards; however, unlike with card #22, no "baseball" exchange coupons exist. All 23 and 24 "football" exchange cards were fulfilled by cards #PT-23 and #PT-24, respectively.

Randomly inserted in packs, this 15-card set is a partial parallel autographed version of the regular insert set. Exchange cards with a May 1st, 2003 redemption deadline were seeded into packs for almost the entire set. Only Al Kaline, Harmon Killebrew and Stan Musial managed to return their cards in time for packout. 2001 Donruss Elite football exchange cards were erroneously seeded into baseball packs for cards TT21 and TT22. The quantity for Ernie Banks signed cards was never revealed by the manufacturer.
