    I’ve been on the fence regarding collecting. I haven’t purchased cards in over 2 months. After opening this crap I may not open for another 2 months. When I saw this product I figure how can you go wrong with a product called 2012 Cooperstown. So far as the cards itself the cards look nice. However for $100 a box and you only get ONE AUTOGRAPH. Panini seems to have pulled a play from the UPPER DECK PLAYBOOK ON “HOW TO SCREW THE COLLECTORS OVER” Very misleading. Usually Panini’s products yield 2-3 autos/mem cards per box. Not this product. Only one. What a waste. My autograph was MILO HAMILTON. Give me a break. I want players or maybe even a coach. Not a freakin guy who called the games over the radio. I am not expecting a high dollar autograph but damn at least give me a player. Chris I will trade you my card for the Goose or Fingers auto.

    Chris, you really need a shave! That still shot video is hilarious. Grab a coffee.

    Rollie Fingers is always a fun pull. A man with such an epic mustache and an awesome name, great pull. Nice to get a god hit when you spend your own money.

    Any fan of baseball from an historical perspective has got to love this set. I watched the whole video and didn’t see a bad card out of the entire box. Great cards!

    Thanks Chris but I shaved this morning. I wish my job was as great as yours. When Five Star Baseball arrives I can’t wait until you break a box or two. I have a case with my name on it.

    Thanks again Chris.

    Awesome “Goose” card !!! He’s from my home state. I’ve been thinking of trying to get his auto TTM. He’s got a great signature! Awesome cards !!

    I’m not sure if he does any TTMs. From people I have met in past, he didn’t seem very IP auto friendly, either. But that could have been way back when, not now.

    What will be the odds of pulling any autograph in a blaster….1,000,000 to 1? I think if I were to buy Panini’s generic cards, I would have to stick to singles and not boxes

    I purchased one box of this product, I was pleased with the overall value and happily surprised when I pulled a Vin Scully autograph. I was even happier when I researched the beckett book value on this card. I immediately put the card in a screw down holder and I am sure it will grade at a 10. Anyone interested in buying this card? #’d 96/100. Ill send you pictures of the card all its corners. im telling you its a 10. I only wonder what it would be worth graded at a 10.
