Panini America’s QC Gallery Preview Leaks First Look at 2012 Cooperstown Baseball

October 25, 2012

Pssst . . . 2012 Cooperstown Baseball, at long last, is on the way. Seriously, it is. I know because I watched with my own eyes — and even assisted with my own hands — the initial stages of the quality-control process for the product just minutes ago back in the Panini America Product Development area.

Turns out everyone back there — Brand Managers from all sports, Graphic Designers, Production folks — are just as excited to finally get their hands on Cooperstown as many collectors out there are. And now that we’ve finally seen honest-to-goodness actual cards from the set, it’s easy to see why.

The unique, history-soaked product — a direct result of Panini America’s new relationship with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum — begins shipping on Monday. But we simply couldn’t wait any longer to begin pulling the curtain back on what’s inside Cooperstown’s throwback-styled 24-pack box.

So consider the following 28 images mere table-setters, an appetizing peek sure to set the stage for a more comprehensive, robust and revealing QC gallery in the coming days.

    Cool stuff I love the 50s style tint on the cards. Tracy any Jackie Robinson autos or mem cards? Just thought I’d ask because it fits the time period. Thanks-

    I like the look of these. The high gloss and cracked ice awesome. The look of these have a hall of fame/Americana type of feel. They stand out!
    I hope you guys take Topps MLB license away. We need more baseball cards like this not what they put out!!

    It does exist. One of the better looking baseball products of 2012. Hopefully this set is something we see every year.
