With the HOF ballots out it’s the perfect time to check out Panini’s Cooeprstown Baseball set.
A box will run you around $90, yield one on-card auto of a HOFer and mess of other great stuff.
Now, as we all know Panini doesn’t have an MLB contract (come MLB lets do this!) so they can’t show team logos. They did a great job with photo selection and cropping to handle this with out being so overt.
Here are a few of my favorite base-cards.
-He has 14 World Series rings, 14!!!
-He was one of the great players of his era, problem was he was on a team with Ruth and Gehrig.
-He taught Yogi Berra to be an all-star catcher.
This may be my favorite. Burt is the HOFer I feel like I own the most. Sure there is Kirby but for some reason I feel closer to Burt as a HOFer. Maybe it was because it took so long, maybe it’s because we was so much more of an outspoken personality with the Twins. He is the first real HOF selection I remember really cheering.
This card looks awesome in hand. I was worried how such a cutting edge look would work on and old school subject such as Cooperstown, and it works very well.
the design is simple and classy. The design feels Hall worthy but isn’t too much. All autos are on card, a huge deal for collectors.
Every auto is of a HOFer. What’s not to love!
I am going to slit this post in half and save the inserts for later.
This is a great product and a must for baseball fans.
