As the baseball world fixes a romantic gaze on tonight’s annual midsummer classic in Kansas City, the folks inside Panini America HQ have been privy to a galaxy’s worth of of All-Stars in preparation for the upcoming 2012 Cooperstown Baseball.
Lately, it seems like not a single mail day goes by around these parts without at least a few history-filled arrivals from the greatest All-Stars of all time. Reggie Jackson. Nolan Ryan. Carlton Fisk. Paul Molitor. Dave Winfield. Andre Dawson. Tony Perez. Frank Rabinson. Jim Palmer. Steve Carlton. Carl Yastrzemski. Those legends — as well as other timeless greats — have all returned their beautiful on-card autographs for the Cooperstown Signatures insert in recent weeks.
But they’re far from alone. Other Hall of Fame history-makers with All-Star ties — such as broadcasters Jon Miller, Tony Kubek, Joe Garagiola and Bob Wolff — have returned their signed stunners, too. So in honor of tonight’s All-Star Game, we figured now was as good a time as any to showcase 39 dazzling examples of what you can expect when 2012 Cooperstown Baseball releases early next month.
