Panini Inks Exclusive Deal With USA Baseball

The Industry Summit news just keeps on coming. Panini America has announced that they have inked a deal with USA Baseball for exclusive rights to produce baseball cards for USA Baseball.

The first product that will incorporate this new agreement with Panini will be in 2012 Prime Cuts, which debuts in October, just in time for my birthday. It will be followed by the annual 2012 USA Baseball Team Set which will be released around Black Friday in November and 2012 Donruss Elite Extra Edition in December 2012.

This move marks another milestone for Panini in their quest to return to baseball card glory back when they were better known as Donruss. Hopefully, this bolsters their portfolio enough for the MLB to give them another chance to shine like back in 2005.
