Go Card-by-Card with Panini America’s 2012 USA Baseball National Teams Box Set
It’s flown largely under the radar in recent weeks, overshadowed by the likes of Panini America’s 2012 Black Friday promotion, the upcoming 2012-13 Prizm Basketball release and the live-today 2012-13 Totally Certified Basketball.
All the while, Panini America officials have been diligently putting the finishing touches on another standout product that goes live today: The 2012 USA Baseball National Teams Box Set, a robust release with a definite dynamite-comes-in-small-packages dynamic that should create quiet a bang for patient, passionate USA Baseball collectors.
Each box set includes 62 base cards devoted to members of USA Baseball’s 2012 Collegiate, 18U and 15U National Teams and three team photo checklist cards. In addition . . . and here’s where it gets really good . . . each box set also delivers seven autographs and two memorabilia cards.
Among the more fascinating possibilities available in the autograph/memorabilia mix for this unique product: Scarce Red and Green ink-color variations, Team Focus team-signed cards numbered to five or less and 1/1 Lineup Card Signatures featuring the first-ever lineup card cuts.
In an effort to help you “experience” the product before you get the chance to really experience it, we thought we’d take you card-by-card through the 65 cards common to each box set in the following gallery. After that, we share a healthy selection of the highly attractive hits we uncovered during the recent Quality Control process.
Enjoy this extended first look at the 2012 USA Baseball National Team Box Set. And after you do, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the product. Who knows, we might just give away a box or three as prizes to lucky respondents.
