The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball

September 25, 2013

Panini America 2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball QC (2)

Over the last month or so we’ve shown you extended glimpses of the old-school charm at the very heart of the throwback-tinged 2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball set. And while the nostalgia may be most noticeable on the design and checklist of the hard-signed Hometown Signatures insert, the product is a bona fide blast from the past from the first card to the last.

In addition to delivering three autographs in every box, 2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball provides a bevy of bells and whistles inspired by yesterday, including border-variation SPs, inserts that are as fun to look at as they are to collect, card backs that require at least a second look and a player list dotted throughout with hot rookies, hot stars and some of the most beloved baseball players of all time.

In anticipation of next Wednesday’s release date, the Panini America Baseball Brand Development team had the distinct opportunity to spend some quality time quality controlling Hometown Heroes late last week. The following gallery details just some of the things uncovered during that process.

Enjoy, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming days for additional coverage of 2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball.
