Default Prime Cuts Baseball - prospect free?? Don't think so

The sell sheet advertised that 2012 Prime Cuts baseball would be prospect free but Chris from Cards Infinity just opened a box that had a Drysdale jersey and a Tyler Thornburg auto. So I guess they are getting around the prospect free claim by putting in low end rookie autos. Nice job Panini.

i just don't see why anyone backs Panini non-licensed baseball products. really crap stuff that they put out and the only product that anyone really cares about is from the Donruss line of EEE.

That was my point in the post. They advertise prospect free, which technically it is. Instead of prospect autos, they put in crap rookie autos instead.

In the last 6 months and even longer, Panini has really been disappointing with their products. The best things they have done were the National packs and Black Friday packs.

This is going to go down as the worst product of all time for box and case breakers. YES, there are some nice cards but Panini can go F&^% themselves when they put Don Drysdale and Tyler Thornburg /199 in a box at $75 a card. What an absolute joke price and product from a non licensed MLB company. Panini is laughing at every sucker who opens a box of this garbage. Sorry to any LCS that bought multiple cases, get out the Pledge and an old rag because it's going to be collecting dust. I thought this company was all about helping out the card shops, yet they enforce outrageous pricing and make shi&&y products to put behind their MAPP. I am really shocked about this one, an all time low and a big reason the hobby is headed for the toliet.

Topps five star is a 10x better break for the same price per hit. Mlb uniforms. More value. More chase cards. Less Panini.

At this point I feel like they are just trying to test the limits of our gambling addictions.

Just watched an entire case break from Chris. Holy sh!t was it bad. My favorite box was the Todd Helton jersey and Billy Williams auto. About $9.00 there total.

I've seen some breaks of it too, and man, it's depressing to watch.

Sure, they got rid of prospects, but now there is less hits, and the jersey cards look REALLY plain. Plus, the rookie autos they included are basically the same value as the prospects.

This makes 2011 Prime Cuts actually look decent. I've seen 7 boxes of this stuff from a 15 box case that put together, wouldn't even make back the price of 1 box.

And even those got ruined for me. At least the Black Friday packs. My one "hit" out of the 8 BF packs I got was a creased and dented Kendell Reyes patch/auto thingy. Panini Support said they don't replace or compensate for factory damaged promotional items.

S'cool. I don't mind just buying Topps stuff from here on out!

Are you dense?



I watched a guy break 3 boxes without hitting a card worth over $20.

$450 spent on this Panini crap for a possible return of $60.

The breaks I've seen on youtube or on forums aren't any better. This stuff is crap. $1-5 GU cards and $1-2 autographs of RCs for a $75 per hit product .

It is really unbelievable how little value there is in the average break of this stuff. I'm thinking 15, maybe 20% return on average. Which will soon be 10% when the little realease hype that is there dies down. Gross.
