Teaser Gallery: Panini America Cracks One Early Box of 2013 Cooperstown Baseball

August 26, 2013

Panini America 2013 Cooperstown Baseball Teaser (7)

Simply put, there’s a refreshing old-meets-new dynamic within each box — and almost within every pack — of Panini America’s 2013 Cooperstown Baseball that makes the first pack as entertaining and educational to open as the last. And after just ripping through all 24 packs of an early hobby box, we can say for certain that there’s also an abundance of hits, too.

Our particular randomly selected box — detailed in the gallery below that takes you pack-by-pack through the experience — yielded 24 Colgan’s Disks, 13 Cracked Ice parallels (and four levels of scarcity), four Induction inserts, four Historic Ticket inserts, three Museum Pieces inserts, two Numbers Game inserts, two Cooperstown Lumberjacks wood cards, two Colorized base-set SPs, one International Play and one splendid Cooperstown Signatures on-card autograph.

Of course, our oversized box-topper was pretty darn cool, too. You can check it all out for yourself in the gallery that follows. You’ll be able to experience the product for yourself firsthand when 2013 Cooperstown Baseball releases to the hobby on Wednesday. Until then, enjoy . . .

    Fun break, love the colorized SPs and the die-cut box-topper is well-executed. There can be no criticism of the clean auto on an uncluttered player image.

    I like the inclusion of the Cracked Ice cards to this set, can’t argue with on-card autos of legends like Mazeroski either. Thanks Tracy!

    Nice cards. I like the “icy” looking parallels. Lumberjacks are also cool. Like the shield around the players’ faces on the base cards. No offense, but the Museum cards aren’t my favorite. Absolutely love the “black and white” signature cards. Will be looking for it at Dave and Adams Card World in Buffalo, NY.

    Reblogged this on The Wax Fantastic and commented:
    Man, this seemed to come around quickly!! We’re only a few days away from the release of this year’s iteration of Cooperstown Baseball from Panini and Tracy has been kind enough to provide us with a look at an early break! Firstly, I absolutely love the packaging, especially the packs! Nice classic look which fits in perfectly with the type of product we’re dealing with! And then, as with last years product, there’s a huge array of base cards, parallels and inserts!! You can’t argue the value for money that appears to be on show in these boxes, but the cherry on top for me always comes in the form of the on-card autograph of a Hall of Famer, the design of which looks simple, elegant and incredibly classy!! More on this set as soon as it hits!!!
