Are the Legendary Three Stooges Coming to 2012 Golden Age Baseball? Soitenly!
When it comes to the timeless brilliance of The Three Stooges®, their Golden Age knows no bounds. The lovable, slap-happy trio’s brand of slapstick humor and sight gags are just as relevant and humorous today as they were back in the 1930s.
And thanks to a special partnership between Panini America and C3 Entertainment, The Three Stooges brand owner, the merry band of misfits will be featured prominently in the upcoming 2012 Golden Age Baseball set.
The landmark appearance of The Three Stooges in Golden Age Baseball, set to release in late November, marks the Stooges’ first appearance on trading cards in several years.
“Panini America including The Three Stooges in their Golden Age set is another indicator of how strong the brand is and how deeply embedded it is in American society,” said Ani Khachoian, C3’s Executive Vice President of Licensing & Consumer Products. “There will be four classic Three Stooges images in the set. This is definitely a ‘must have’ collectible for Three Stooges fans, entertainment fans, baseball fans and card collectors as it is an unique and eclectic set.”
Said Jason Howarth, Panini America’s Vice President of Marketing: “The Three Stooges are iconic in American culture. When building a trading card product like Golden Age that features some of the greatest players in baseball history along with entertainers, there was no question, that The Three Stooges should be a part of it. We are excited to deliver new trading cards for Stooges fans everywhere.”
