A Panini America Teaser Gallery: One Early Box of 2012 Golden Age Baseball

December 21, 2012

Panini America Golden Age Teaser (1)

Some people would have you believe that today marks the end of the world. We’re not those people. On the contrary, all of us here at Panini America would have you believe that today marks the beginning of the Golden Age. At the very least, it marks the day that 2012 Golden Age Baseball goes live.

Indeed, following weeks of buildup surrounding the eclectic, multisport marvel and the bona fide pieces of trading card history randomly inserted into its packs, collectors today finally get the chance to see for themselves the uniqueness that awaits. We’ll have a must-see edition of Panini Unwrapped starring 2012 Golden Age Baseball later today. But for now, we present a pack-by-pack visual breakdown of one early box.

We ended up pulling two memorabilia cards out of this box (one more than we expected), in addition to an on-card autograph from Vida Blue and enough in-pack entertainment to last us until the next time the world is supposed to end.

Enjoy.

    This is a beautiful product. Another reason I hope Panini lands that MLB license.

    I really want each box to play The Golden Age by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour when you open it.

    I bought 1 box of Golden Age yesterday and pulled a 1930’s Ted Lyons card. At first I thought it was just a reprint but some card fans on Twitter have let me know it is an original buyback. Thanks for including these in this set Tracy.

    Pulled an Eddie Collins Bat Card, which is very nice ! Interesting, though, that somebody in QC seems to have overlooked the fact that the description on the card back of the Eddie Collins Bat Card is the description of Charlie Chaplain !??! Looked up an auction on eBay and that scan of the card back has the same Chaplain description. I’m thinking they were all printed this way ??

      D’oh! That stinks. I’m almost positive there was not a correction made on that. Will check with the team to try to find out, though.
