Preparing for Prime Time: Panini America Previews 2011 Prime Cuts Baseball
Crazy. Sick. Filthy. Nasty. Insane.
Whatever one-word euphemisms you use to describe some of the most gorgeous trading cards ever produced, get them ready. You’re going to need them as you peruse the gallery that follows previewing 2011 Prime Cuts Baseball and some of the craziest, sickest, filthiest, nastiest, most insane baseball cards you’ve ever seen.
I spent a few hours Friday morning at the Panini America printing facility grabbing as many images as possible of as many cards as possible before collation and packout begin next week. The truth of the matter is that I might have gotten back to the office a lot earlier had I not been alternating between taking pictures and retrieving my jaw from the floor.
Ultimately, though, I persevered and got back to Panini America HQ with an iPhone full of images highlighting Prime Cuts’ unrivaled, Hall of Fame roster of prime memorabilia pieces, breathtaking booklet cards and some of the greatest baseball players of all time.
You’ll see what I mean in the gallery that follows, which is sure to leave you repeatedly uttering one of the aforementioned pseudonyms for “sweet.” That is, if it doesn’t leave you speechless altogether. Oh, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance next week for more Prime Cuts images.
