Up Close & Personal: Panini America Leaks 2012 Signature Series Baseball Images

September 01, 2012

Boasting a bold, in-their-face design that hearkens back to the halcyon days of beloved-but-bygone Studio releases, Panini America’s upcoming 2012 Signature Series Baseball¬†aims to provide collectors with an intimate look at the biggest stars of the Major League Baseball Players Association.

As you can see in the preview gallery that follows, the new Signature Series will signal a refreshing departure from the standard action-photography release while presenting baseball’s biggest stars in a way you’ve rarely seen them before.

Earlier this week, Panini America officials began processing many of the cards slated to receive on-card autographs for the set, and many of those — including a few Proof parallel versions — are featured below in their before-autograph state. In addition, we’ve also provided a few glimpses of some base cards from the set.

Enjoy this candid, personality-driven sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional updates as they become available.
