Pack Preview: 2012 Panini Prizm Baseball

After the popularity of Prizm Basketball and Football it was only a matter of time before Panini decided it was best to include baseball in the mix.

With the recent successful release of National Treasures baseball, collectors are showing that they are warming up to a product without logos.  Especially if it’s done correctly.

Each box is going to include two autographs and three Prizms per box.  The recent secondary market information is definitely giving a lot of weight to the Prizm color variations, more selling for double what some of the autographs are selling for.

Also include are USA Baseball cards which include Prizms, autographs and, according to Panini, the first-ever USA Baseball card and autograph in that uniform.

Other notable signers for the USA Baseball cards are: Buster Posey, Justin Upton, Justin Verlander and a handful of other top names.

It’s also worth nothing some of the non-prospect, or even current players included. Some in this set are: Tony Gwynn, Dave Winfield, Ken Griffey Jr., Don Mattingly and Cal Ripken Jr. to name a few.

More information is being released as the days go by, so make sure you check back.  Make sure you view the tentative checklist available here.
