Sweet looking cards when do they hit the stores?anyone!!!
Very Nice well done
Is this a hobby only release?
Will we see Jeter, Trout, and Harper. I remember they were part of the USA baseball insert set in Prizm?
Product looks awesome, those Diamond Kings are must haves.
I wish MLB would get their heads out of their a$$e$ and give you guys a license. I miss Panini baseball without all the photoshopping and airbrushing. One thing though, why are the flag patches backward?
The good news with USA Baseball, of course, is that we have no photoshopping issues. As for the “backward” flags, that’s the way they appear on the uniform per USA Baseball guidelines.
Panini has done a wonderful job with the baseball licenses they have. In a lot ways its allowed for more creativity and flexibility.
Cooperstown and USA Champions are two releases that I am really looking forward too because they have a unique license that you can’t find anywhere else.
USA Champions has a great mix of prospects and legends too. This 1990’s collectors loves seeing Frank Thomas and Ken Griffey Jr. with numbered inserts and parallels.
That is the way a flag should look on the right shoulder, same as with a military uniform. It is that way because the blue field and stars should always be shown in the highest position of honor, on a moving object, such as a person, that is facing forwards.
Nice work, Kevin. Thanks for the clarification.
As an undergrad I lived with some ROTC guys, so I know far more about military uniforms and stuff that you can imagine…
So far soo good, looking forward to part two. Thanks Tracy!
Wow these are pretty sweet..bring on part 2!
Oh my god, I haven’t seen Wally Joyner on a card in a long time. That is worth the price of admission right there!
