non licensed prizm baseball interesting, the question is if panini can do this with baseball why cant topps get a players contract for basketball. Its funny they are even allowed to use stats and team location just not uniform.

Nice looking product. Is that Justin Upton below Heyward in the first picture? Looks like he is in the Braves uniform at spring training.I am an avid Atlanta Braves Auto collector. I am in the process of updating all my autos to a spreadsheet and organizing them. I am always looking for Atlanta Braves RCs Autos and also nice veteran autos.

I'm in for it if the price is decent- Would be even better if Panini had a MLB license, but hey, I'll take what I can get

I'm torn on this product. I wasn't a fan of the football due to it having only 2 hits and I believe the box was $140ish? If its anywhere near that with panini not having a liscense I don't care if I have a sliver of a chance of pulling a Trout gold Refrac that someone will spend their retirement fund on, it just doesn't have enough umph to the product. They're aesthetically pleasing but that's about the only thing that the cards really have going for them.

Nobody else peeved that Panini is releasing a 2012 so far into the 2013 calendar year? I mean what is the cut off for calling a product 2012? Are we going to see 2012 stuff in 2014?

Probably would have been better if they just scrapped the Chrome unlicensed knock off product and instead brought Crusade to baseball. That's the only sport where Crusade has name value and recognition and that would be something different rather than just copying the success of Topps.
