Last week Panini unleashed their latest Prizm set on the world in the form of Prizm Baseball.
Two quick notes:
1. Yes this is a non-MLB licensed set so no team logos. I am OK with this, it doesn’t really bother me. Also this isn’t Panini’s doing so I don’t see why anyone criticizes them for it.
2. I love sets that cross sports broders. It’s one of the things I love about recent Topps base that share designs. The fact the all Prizm sets have the same design and program (I learned that term from Panini Unwrapped videos) is a huge plus in my book.
OK, on to the cards.
Love it. The design is still cool and looks great with baseball.
There are a ton of great catcher cards in this set.
I say Buster wins back to back MVPs
Even though it was just released it is a 2012 set so guys like Wilson and bryce are rookies here.
I would imagine Panini used so many defensive catcher shot because it’s an easy way to avoid logos.
I love McCutchen and what a great shot.
What the heck is up with Pujols and the Angels this season?
The set also has legends, here is my favorite.
Few guys look better on a trading card than Donnie Baseball.
Baseball aslo features the prizm parallels.
I am still a fan of Morneau.
Cool, a HOFer!
Hey, another HOFer!
These looks great in person.
The coolest cards in the set in my humble opinion are the team USA cards.
Busters USA card may be my favorite in the box.
I love the baseball stitching along the side, it really makes this card.
The little pattern in the background of all of these has a weird 3d effect. It was far more pronounced in baseball than in other sports.
I also got this card.
I am not sure if these are like updated cards fro EEE or what, but still cool.
The box gives two autos.
…and one rookie
These are cool enough.
I am a fan of the set and I hope the keep the concept going into 2013.
