Collection Highlight: 2005 Donruss Zenith Ladainian Tomlinson

2005 Donruss Zenith #83 Ladainian Tomlinson

Here is one of my favorite Ladainian Tomlinson cards.  It’s just a plain old base card from 2005 Donruss Zenith.  But what a design.

The card is one of the few of the 21st century to feature dufex.  What’s dufex?  It’s a special type of printing that gives cards a cool, “etched foil” look.  It was used quite a bit in the 90′s, especially by the Pinnacle Company.  Anyone remember Museum Collection?

I always thought that Donruss Zenith was a very underrated set.  They did a great job utilizing dufex with this design.   Not too gaudy, but boy does the dufex make #21 pop out.
