2013 Panini Cooperstown Baseball Preview

Over the months since starting this blog I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m a big fan of Panini’s old school Baseball products. A BIG fan!

No-one else out there makes ball cards in a similar way. Sure, Topps has its retro-themed products such as Heritage, A&G and Gypsy Queen, but they don’t produce any sets that specifically deal with the players from the Dead Ball Era or that are themed around the denizens of Cooperstown. You know the sort of thing that mean!

Last year’s Panini Cooperstown Baseball was one of the best kept secrets in the card release calendar, with a great base set, a multitude of inserts and an exemplary on-card autograph set (including the incredibly popular and hard-to-find sig of Dodgers veteran broadcaster – Vin Scully).

With their 2013 release I’m hoping for much of the same, and from early release information it doesn’t look as if I’m going to be disappointed.

Personally I can’t wait for this one!!!! The base design and the selection of players is fantastic, and those autos – well, what can I say? It’s sets like these that will make people sit up and take notice of what Panini has to offer.

And that can only be a good thing as far as I’m concerned!

Look for 2013 Panini Cooperstown Baseball in the middle of August!
