Panini America Peeks Latest Batch of Autos for 2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball
If he played professional baseball in the Seventies, Eighties or Nineties and left an indelible impression on you for any number of reasons, chances are he has an on-card autograph in Panini America’s upcoming 2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball. MVPs, World Series winners, saves leaders, home run champs and some of the most colorful characters the game has ever known are honored in the set’s Hometown Signatures insert.
And say this about the players on the checklist no matter what they did on the diamond: They’re all heroes of handwriting today, possessors of poignant penmanship whose bold, full autographs could forever serve as “How To Sign Certified Autographs” examples.
And the players featured — Will Clark, Jay Buhner, Ozzie Guillen, Matt Williams and so many more — are right at home in the quirky, retro-cool confines of Hometown Heroes, a pulpy, throwback tribute to the simpler times and trading cards of yesterday. Last month we profiled some of the early autograph returns for the set; today we deliver a whole new batch.
Enjoy, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance next week for a complete Quality Control Gallery that delivers a comprehensive breakdown of everything the set has to offer, including the legendary, lenticular return of SportDisks.
