After last weeks announcement that Donruss had acquired a Vince Young game-used Texas Longhorns jersey, official at Donruss announced the jersey made it into the popular release, Donruss Classics. The jersey was used in the popular insert, Saturday Stars, with autographed cards included, too.
"After we looked into it, we felt this was such a unique item, we needed to pull all the strings we could to get the jersey into collectors hands," said Donruss Playoff Football Brand Manager Ben Ecklar. "It's a perfect fit for the popular Saturday Stars inset and another way we are using our relationship with Vince to add value to our programs."
The white Nike road jersey was worn by Vince during the 2004 season. Vince recently joined Donruss as a spokesmen and will appear on packaging during 2007. Donruss also announced that Minnesota Vikings rookie, Adrian Peterson, will join Vince and appear on packaging during 2007, too.
