Panini America 2016 Prime Cuts Baseball Main

For a brand that packs as much prestige, heritage and Hall of Fame content as Panini America’s Prime Cuts Baseball does, three years away from the marketplace can seem almost like an eternity. But in late October, Panini America will reintroduce the high-end release to waiting collectors for the first time since the 2012 season. The time away, however, has likely only increased the product’s allure.

As you’ll see in the preview gallery that follows, 2016 Prime Cuts Baseball proudly carries on a rich tradition in terms of both look and content. The product boasts an all-thriller, no-filler makeup that delivers five autograph or memorabilia cards in every five-card box (five cards per box, five boxes per inner case, two inner cases per master case).
