Hall’s Hallowed Vets Honored with Patriotic Insert in 2012 Cooperstown Baseball

July 4, 2012

As Americans from coast to coast take time today to celebrate the Fourth of July (with food, family, fireworks, fun and perhaps even a few fastballs), we thought now was the perfect time to preview the patriotic With Honors insert slated for Panini America’s upcoming 2012 Cooperstown Baseball.

The star-spangled 10-card chase honors those heroic members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame — Jackie Robinson, Stan Musial, Joe DiMaggio and others — who served time in the military during their baseball careers fighting to keep America free.

As we celebrate another Independence Day, With Honors provides a colorful, fitting tribute to a handful of heroes who were as legendary on the diamond as they were serving in the armed forces. And it should serve as a proud remember of the heroic men and women in the military — past, present and always — who put their country before themselves.

Enjoy this sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional information on 2012 Cooperstown Baseball.

From all of us here at Panini America: Happy Independence Day.

    Any cuts for this subset? That would be even more amazing than this set already appears.

    I don’t normally chime in on product – but dang it’s hard not to be excited for this release… beautiful looking cards.

    This is a very nice tribute, but at least 3 of the card backs still need to be checked before being sent to press.

    I am impressed once again. Is this a hobby only release?

      No, sir. It will be available at retail, too.

    This is a well imagined insert that resonates deeply with serious collectors and occasional pack busters alike.
    I, too, think that a memorabilia parallel would be historically significant and heavily pursued!

    Loving the throwback feel to these and way to honor these players.
