Over the last few weeks we’ve shared just some of the highlights from Panini America’s great “Spring Training Autograph Tour of 2012,” compliments of Acquisitions Manager Tone Stakes as he makes the rounds in Florida and Arizona.
In previous dispatches, Stakes has shared behind-the-scenes anecdotes, images of the players signing and even a few card sneak peeks. But today, we’re going full-blown, up-close card gallery in an effort to preview some of the sweetest signatures acquired so far for upcoming MLBPA-licensed products 2011 Prime Cuts and 2011 Limited.
To be sure, what you’re about to see is jaw-dropping — in terms of the quality of signer, sure, but especially in terms of the quality of the signatures. From Hall of Famers to future Hall of Famers to future stars, they’re all represented below, with high-quality penmanship to match.
Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional previews.

Great preview of this product, really thrilled to see so many veteran autos. Looks like a fantastic product to come!
The assortment of HOF players in the product is fantastic. For collectors seeking to add a Deion Sanders or Big Papi ‘graph to their collections, you’d be hard-pressed to find a cleaner, neater issue.
Loving the nicknames set.
You’ve gotta love how much care the retired legends take with their signatures.
That’s the first thing I recognized. Well done PAnini!!!
I knew great things were to come when Panini started creating MLB cards. Great job Mr. Hackler!
Wish I could take the credit, Steve. The credit for this beauty of a product goes to product development, design and acquisitions. But I’ll certainly pass along your kind words.
Awesome……post more pics as you get them
What an awesome looking product.
I am drooling on the Joey Bat auto! It looks fantastic!
Beautiful gallery Tracy!! I cant wait to bust some boxes of Prime Cuts when it comes out!!
2 different Deion Sanders Notable Nicknames cards? Is that really necessary?
I’m getting a case of this product. What are the card sizes (thickness) so I can get the right toploader sizes… thanks!!!
130s should be good for Prime Cuts; Limited is standard trading card thickness.
What is the hobby release date for Prime Cuts?
That Frank Thomas card is amazing.
Those Significant Signatures are some of the nicest autographed cards I’ve seen in awhile in baseball. Great job utilizing the MLBPA license there.
Loving the On cardness! Really digging that Notable Nicknames Set!
Really nice looking clean product. Way to go Panini!
Nice stuff again. Love what you guys are doing with baseball cards. Hopefully you will get your MLB license again…PLEASE! NO MORE TOPPS….and these will be above and beyond there already awesomeness!
