Baseball Cards Wiki

The Benchmarks set is an insert set in 2001 Donruss Classics. The 24-card set was inserted 1:18 hobby and 1:72 retail packs. Each card features a wood chip from a dugout bench from a major league stadium. BM-11 Willie Stargell, BM-19, and BM-24 Hank Aaron were all packed out as exchange cards. Both BM-11 and BM-24 are very rare but it is believed that card BM-19 does not exist. The set was also partially paralleled with 9 autographed cards. The autographs were all packed out as exchange cards and a total of 25 sets were printed (according to Donruss).

The exchange cards could be redeemed until September 10, 2003.
