Earlier this week, Panini announced their newest baseball product, 2012 Panini National Treasures. National Treasures is usually a football product, but this year Panini will be making a baseball edition. I am geussing this is in response to Topps crossing over 5 Star into the baseball market. Here are the preview images they released.
As you can see, these are some very high end cards. For the most part I do think the set is well designed, and I like the variety of memorabelia used. This product will feature the first relic cards ever of Wee Willie Keler, Goose Goslin as well as six other players. Each box will feature a combination of 8 autograph and relic cards. Included in those eight cards, each box is guarenteed to have a booklet card. The Panini MAPP price is $400 and the product is scheduled to be released February 13, the day before Valentine's Day. So will National Treasures be your Valentine? Please comment below with your opinions of this new product.
