Default Panini Peek: 2012 Golden Age Baseball

Panini Peek: 2012 Golden Age Baseball

September 12, 2012 at 12:53 PM



The future of Panini America Baseball is about to embark on a glorious trip back in time, to the golden age of baseball collecting and a checklist that includes the likes of the Loch Ness Monster, Watergate journalist Bob Woodward, Shoeless Joe Jackson, Ty Cobb and cards embedded with wood salvaged from the Titanic.

Panini America’s 2012 Golden Age Baseball, slated to arrive in late November, also features mini parallels with card-back variations, a unique selection of box toppers including mini pennants patterned after the 1916 Ferguson Bakery Pennants, and BuyBacks of original classic cards from the 1930s and 1940s.


2012 Golden Age Baseball (six cards per pack, 24 packs per box) will be comprised of 150 base cards (including 25 SP variations that fall roughly two per case), 150 mini tobacco card parallels with back-color variations, 50 Historic Signatures, 40 Museum Age memorabilia cards and one Triple Crown Winners Signature card.

Other highlights of the product include:

A box break that should yield one Historic Signatures autograph, one Museum Age memorabilia card, 24 Mini Parallels, two Headlines, two Batter-Up, one Newark Evening World Supplement, one Ferguson Bakery pennant or 5 by 7 Movie Poster box topper (a limited number of the Movie Posters will include memorabilia from the depicted actors).
Each case should deliver one original buyback card from the 1930s or 1940s, with several Hall of Famers dotting the checklist.
History-riddled memorabilia inclusions such as Museum Age Titanic cards embedded with pieces of pine wreckwood from the ship and memorabilia cards featuring the infamous 1919 Black Sox.
A unique Triple Crown Winners tribute card featuring autographs from the three living Triple Crown jockeys.
To be sure, the Golden Age of Americana means different time periods for different people. But this new product mixes the best of baseball’s past with great athletes from other sports and personalities from other professions. We’ll have much more on 2012 Golden Age Baseball in the coming weeks.

But until then, here’s an extended first look at some of what the product has in store . . .

Great. Another Allen & Ginter, Goodwins Champions. I'm surprised it took them this long.

I can't wait for all the newbies to complain about all the non-baseball subject matter when they open their one box.

Looking for Andre Dawson Serial numbered cards that are his jersey number - either #8 or #10. So looking for cards like 8/8 or 08/99 or 10/250.

These might be the worst previews I've ever seen...

Don't know about the product, but I would love to have that Titanic card.

Just go to the website TitanicItems.com, it's run by Gem Mint Inc. they supplied the Titanic Wood and other memorabilia for the much more interesting Cult-Stuff Titanic product. Hey that wood was recovered by the rescue ship Minia the morning after, they also recovered 17 bodies with the broken pieces of deck wood. The carpenter on board the Minia fished out the wood to make stuff with in the future(which he did).

True. But I was shocked that there is actually a negative comment in the blog post.

Doesn't look good, but at 65-70 a box, it might not be as bad as other Panini products.

Then again, that's more of a testament to the over-pricing Panini does rather thanthe quality of the product.

This is worst than the other bad stuff panini puts out. The design and color scheme of the cards look horrendous.
