Later this week, Jun 10th to be exact, Panini is dropping their brand new Absolute Baseball collection! And it looks to be shaping up into a series you won’t want to miss!
What's in the base set?
Panini has made sure to let everyone know that, whether you’re looking for the up and coming rookie or that legendary ball player of yesteryear, you’ll have something to chase!
The base set contains 100 cards with a selection of “Hobby Box Only” parallels. We've only seen a small sampling of what's included but it's enough to get even the most laid back collector psyched!
- Holo Silver - #/199
- Spectrum Blue - #/149
- Spectrum Red - #/99
- Spectrum Purple - #/25
- Spectrum Gold - #/10
- Spectrum Black - 1/1
- Printing Plates - 1/1
Autographs / Relics
One of the coolest things about some of these autograph cards is that they aren’t just signed on paper. Some are signed on “Rookie Signatures Wood” while others are on what they call “Rookie Baseball Material.” Which… I mean, it's signed on baseball material.
Tools of the Trade and More
There are also the jersey swatch cards, which also come in 2-swatch, 3-swatch, or 4-swatch as part of the "Tools of the Trade" cards. There are also some really awesome JUMBO card versions. Need I say more?
The swatches also come in rookie and veteran variants. The veteran swatches are called “Established Threads” and the "Extreme Team" adds a psychedelic background to some of the top players.
With an emphasis on veteran talent and unique signature materials, there is a lot to love about this set! Happy hunting, collectors!
