Panini America is combining two of the most popular aspects in all of baseball-card collecting — the company’s appealing Prizm printing technology and hot draft picks — for the debut release of 2013 Prizm Perennial Draft Picks Baseball, which will deliver the industry’s first on-card autographs of key players from the 2013 draft, a rainbow array of Prizm parallels and the first Panini America cards of Cuban slugger Jose Abreu.
Arriving in late October and highlighted by the first hard-signed cards of 2013 No. 1 overall pick Mark Appel and No. 2 overall pick Kris Bryant, 2013 Prizm Perennial Draft Picks Baseball will feature a 100-card base set and key inserts such as Prospect Signatures (100 cards), 2013 Draft Class (50 cards) and First Overall Picks (10 cards) — all of which will be paralleled by Red, Blue, Gold and 1/1 Black Prizms.
The product also will include on-card signatures of top minor leaguers such as Byron Buxton, Maikel Franco and Mike Foltynewicz.
Each 20-pack hobby box of 2013 Prizm Perennial Draft Picks Baseball will deliver four autographs, six Prizm parallels and three additional insert cards. We’ll have more information on the product right here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming weeks. But for now, here’s your first extended look . . .
