Whatever one-word euphemisms you use to describe some of the most gorgeous trading cards ever produced, get them ready.

I spent a few hours Friday morning at the Panini America printing facility grabbing as many images as possible of as many cards as possible before collation and packout begin next week. The truth of the matter is that I might have gotten back to the office a lot earlier had I not been alternating between taking pictures and retrieving my jaw from the floor.
Ultimately, though, I persevered and got back to Panini America HQ with an iPhone full of images highlighting Prime Cuts’ unrivaled, Hall of Fame roster of prime memorabilia pieces, breathtaking booklet cards and some of the greatest baseball players of all time.
You’ll see what I mean in the gallery that follows, which is sure to leave you repeatedly uttering one of the aforementioned pseudonyms for “sweet.” That is, if it doesn’t leave you speechless altogether. Oh, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance next week for more Prime Cuts images.

these cards leave me speechless, amazing work panini
I choose the adjectives, “Extraordinary” and “Exceptional” to describe my thoughts on the above gallery. That Elmer Flack name/full address cut is special.
Keep it coming Hackler!
Pretty nice! Lose the stickers and the die cut over the great patches and it would be perfect.
those Braun patches are amazing
Truly EPIC gallery, thanks for the preview Tracy!
The cards are AMAZING and the Ty Cobb cut sig booklet is to die for!!! Great job Panini!!!
Crazy. Sick. Filthy. Nasty. Insane.
I had to take these words from your mouth. I had the same feelings. Wow! Some great stuff! would love to get my hands on this product!
Great stuff Panini as always!!!! Going to have to share some of these images and link. This is a winner and a two thumbs way up product!
Those are amazing looking cards. Great work there guys.
Sticker autos make me want to vomit! I’ll pass.
The Ty Cobb booklet is something that should belong to Cooperstown, no kidding..amazing cards, would be perfect if you could have autos on cards and not on stickers, but boy this product looks le-gen-da-ry.
I love this product for my personal collection. I don’t bust packs. I want to make sure my customers get all the great hits. However, I will be making offers to buy back from my customers on just about everything I see here.
I never imagined these cards would be this nice. I must say, I am very impressed. Great Job, Panini.
Your design team should be given props, because the designs are great. But with all due respect, stickers and cuts ruin everything, in my opinion.
Why doesn’t this product have your MAPP policy with it ???
Man, despite the MLB team logos, these cards look freakin’ amazing!!! Those are killer patch cards and make up for the logos!!! I am so glad I got a case!
How much will it be for a box
Baseball Director of Product Development Ben Ecklar tells me it’s $250.
