The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2012 Cooperstown Baseball (71 Images)

October 31, 2012

Last week we gave you a tip-of-the-iceberg teaser starring the shipped-at-last 2012 Cooperstown Baseball. Today, we’re bringing you a magnificent full reveal showcasing the unique product officially licensed by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum that showcases some of the greatest players, personalities and memorabilia in baseball history.

Each box of 2012 Cooperstown Baseball is like a fantasy trip to the Hall of Fame village in Cooperstown, N.Y., with each pack providing something of an all-access pass to the people, places and things that make the museum so magical. What’s more, each pack also provides fans and collectors with the opportunity to win a real trip to Cooperstown in Panini America’s cross-brand Hall of Fame Holiday promotion.

Of course, you’ll find out all about that when you start busting packs next Wednesday. We know that what you’re really interested in seeing today are the goods — the historic base cards, the stunning colorized variant SPs, the at-least-one-per-box autographs, the “Cracked Ice” parallels and all the inserts that take you instantly to the floor of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

We’ll have much more on the long-awaited 2012 Cooperstown Baseball next week. But today, just enjoy the following 71-image showcase.

    Awesome stuff. Since I will probably never get the chance to see Cooperstown this is the best way I can view it and with excellent photography and high gloss brings me right there.

    Are the cracked ice numbered?

    Nicely done. Love the authographs looks so clean and the white area where the auto is makes it even visible.
    The memorabilia looks like its on 3D.
    A sure hit!

    Why are some of the autos numbered so high? They should be a harder pull. Especially with the HOFers and old timers. See to much of this happening these days. It just devalues these guys. They are a piece of history.

    Kudos to the designers for being able to capture the feel of the Museum throughout the set. This will help me when I chat with my kids about Baseball. Now I have visuals… everyone loves visuals and these are striking.

    Why no action shots? ZZzzzzzzZZZ. This is not the Past/Present or Classics of baseball. Not quite there yet.
