We’ve got our hands on early boxes of 2009 Donruss Americana for an episode of Box Busters later today and one thing is already for certain — the packaging choice by Panini America just might be the coolest ever.

Each four-pack box is approximately the size of an older multi-disc CD case with each pack in a cardboard CD sleeve.

Oh, and the cards ain’t that bad, either, as there is a slightly smaller checklist and what seems like a larger variety of insert cards. (See more on the set here and here.)

Here are two cards we found in a pair of boxes …


Look for the video here later today. Meanwhile, Americana arrives on June 3.
