The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2012 Prizm Baseball (Base Cards & Inserts)

April 11, 2013

Panini America 2012 Prizm Baseball QC Base Main

Perhaps partially obscured this week by the hobby-wide wave of 2012 National Treasures Football wonderment is the fact that another highly anticipated Panini America release — 2012 Prizm Baseball — is on the verge of its own celebrated release. In fact, the product began shipping to hobby outlets late last week and will be live next Wednesday.

In anticipation of the big release day, Panini America’s Mike Payne and Tim Trout last Friday put the maiden Prizm Baseball product through a thorough Quality Control process at the company production facility. What follows are just some of the fruits of that labor. In today’s first extended preview of 2012 Prizm Baseball, we’re going to focus on the base cards and base inserts (including the spectacular USA Baseball inclusion).

In the coming days, however, we’ll reveal so much more — including the product’s calling-card Prizm parallels and autographs. But this gallery should be enough to get your anticipatory juices flowing.
