Well today is release day and I’m finally getting a preview out to the masses. It’s nothing new for this month as I’ve finally finished up a difficult term in graduate school. My focus had to move elsewhere for a bit, but now I get some time to do something else I love, look at products.
Panini continues their baseball season after the season has ended with 2012 Golden Age baseball. Golden Age is a product that mixes up some of the best baseball players of all time with other professional athletes and faces from history. It’s sort of like a A&G type product.
Every box will contain one Historic Signatures autographed card, one Museum Age memorabilia card, and a number of parallels and inserts. One of the cool additions is box toppers that have a rare chance of including some memorabilia embedded into them. Thank you for bringing back the box topper, Panini.
One of my favorite additions is always the history memorabilia cards. For instance, in this product you might find a small piece of the infamous ship that sank in 1912, the Titanic. Or maybe you’ll find something with the baseball theme and get a piece of a bat used by “Shoeless” Joe Jackson from the famed Black Sox. How about an authentic 1930s-40s Babe Ruth or Lou Gehrig Goudey card?
The autographs contained in this product will be historic, as the title of the card suggests. With cut signatures of big personalities and baseball players, Triple Crown jockeys, political standouts, and more, there is a lot of American history in each box of this product.
You should be able to find it, starting today, at DA Card World for about $72.
You can find the full checklist over at Cardboard Connection as well.
