Cool Some real garbage being put out by card companies....

Panini released two hideous products today in Signature Series and Cooperstown. Wow, so bad....retails for 120 bucks? seriously? almost as bad as Press Pass Hall of Fame, but not quite These boxes are great for filling up a 4 dollar per jersey/auto card box in my store...

If Panini would re-think their MAPP prices maybe this stuff would sell.

that's the biggest con for me. If I want to pick up Giants stuff I want to see them in their uniforms, not see Juan Marichal or Buster Posey in a white jersey and plain black cap

The products are fine, what I see from these guys is that the production value does not equal the high cost they are asking in the eyes of the consumers.

Panini needs to go back to making ONLY the sticker books.

I think the opposite. I think there are too few Panini haters around. Low quality product that costs about twice what it is worth.

I don't have a problem with them but at the same time you don't have to purchase the product either. I think Baseball wise it will always be a step down because they are limited with what they can do with no license to use logos.

The box break breakdowns online say that you get 1 auto and 2 manufactured patches per box. My box had 2 autos and no patches, another guy had 2 autos and no patches, eBay has no patches... Where are the patches???!!!

The value doesn't seem to be there in basketball either. There is a reason basketball collectors cried all night when the contract was renewed with the NBA. I loved to break Topps basketball and was hoping they would be able to get back in the game soon. Oh well, maybe several more years down the road.

I don't agree with the pricing they do I'll admit that though. I think they need to adjust that because after the 30 days is up most of the products they do seem to get lowered outside of a select few that go higher.

I used to love Panini when I was a boy. They were king of the hill for soccer stickers for years over here. You used to be able to send them the equivalent of a nickel for any card of your choice in order to complete sets. I was overjoyed to receive a Manchester City club badge foil to complete mine. They're not worth much but they have great sentimental value.

Nowadays, I wouldn't touch their stuff at half price - and I haven't collected soccer for 25+ years. I have a couple of Prime Cuts autos but that's it. Each to their own but I have no idea why anyone would pay full price for this stuff.

They might of changed things up. The patches maybe only in blaster boxes if they do exist not sure though.

Yeah seems like that was the initial idea but obviously the product was delayed enough they couldn't do it.

I agree with you! I don't have the brand new Panini baseball cards but the 2011 Prime Cuts Timelines Patch Auto /5 cards in my PC along with a nice JUNIOR Auto /10 card from prime cuts. I don't mind the looks of these particular cards and it doesn't bother me that you don't see the players actual jerseys on the cards. Panini probably just couldn't get the rights from MLB to use the jerseys so I can understand.
