“Million Dollar Bill,” “Iceman,” “The Biff” — like any sport, NASCAR has its share of fun and memorable nicknames. Several of them take center stage with the 2017 Donruss Racing variations.

The variations offer an alternate take on 18 of the base cards in 2017 Donruss Racing. The big giveaway on the front is that the racer’s first and last names have been replaced by their nickname.

But the variations go beyond that. Like a lot of variations in other sets and sports, they also have different photos on the front. Even the backs are different — although that might be tough to tell if you don’t have the two copies side-by-side.

2017 Donruss Racing variations also have a full run of parallels, just like the base cards:

• Gold Foil – /499
• Blue Foil – /299
• Green Foil – /199
• Gold Press Proof – /99
• Press Proof – /49
• Artist Proof – /25
• Printing Plate Black – 1/1
• Printing Plate Cyan – 1/1
• Printing Plate Magenta – 1/1
• Printing Plate Yellow – 1/1

Parallels have the same print runs as base versions, so they’re not short prints.

The regular versions don’t appear to be all that tough to pull either. This is in line with other recent Donruss Baseball variations.

Want to know exactly what you should be looking for with the 2017 Donruss Racing variations? We’ve got a detailed (and growing) gallery below.
