The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2013 Elite Extra Edition Baseball (93 Pics)

January 6, 2014

Panini America 2013 Elite Extra Edition Baseball QC (94)

That undeniable buzz radiating all around you right now could be associated with the scintillating weekend of NFL playoff football we just witnessed and the madness known as #PaniniWildCard that accompanied it. Of course, it could also be a direct result of the intense anticipation surrounding this week’s release of Panini America’s 2013 America’s Pastime Baseball and 2013 Elite Extra Edition Baseball.

We offered an extended sneak peek at America’s Pastime last week. today, we’re fixing our gazing on the highly anticipated Elite Extra Edition, annually one of the most coveted and consequential prospect products on the baseball landscape. Although this year’s installment features several striking additions (such as unique die-cutting, a rainbow array of parallels and compelling USA Baseball content), the time-tested recipe that was worked so well for EEE over the years remains intact: Autographs of the game’s brightest young prospects — and lots of them.

Most boxes of 2013 Elite Extra Edition Baseball will deliver six autographs, but four Hot Boxes per case will yield 10; Red (limited to 25) and Green (limited to 10) ink variations return as well. In all, more than 30 first-round picks from the 2013 Draft signed for the product. Also on the autograph checklist? Ryan Garvey, Dereck Rodriguez and Hunter Harvey, sons of former big-league All-Stars Steve, Ivan and Bryan, respectively.

And just to add an element of chase, there’s the High School All-Stars insert that falls roughly two per case. Take a look at what’s in store when 2013 Elite Extra Edition Baseball releases on Thursday in the massive Quality Control Gallery that follows. And stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage.

    I’ve been eagerly awaiting this gallery… and it did NOT disappoint.
    The cards look clean, sharp and they really pop! I really like the “Bloodlines” insert, and I’m really impressed with the Jersey cards!
    THack, are there any autographed versions of the Jersey cards?

    Really, really sharp release!

    Hey Tracy, I assume he wouldn’t be in this product as he was in last years, but would you know if Paul Blackburn, pitcher for the Cubs, has any cards in this or any upcoming product? Thanks.

      As you noted, we was in last year’s release; nothing planned for him in 2014 at this time.
