Sure, the baseball card landscape is not as busy as they days of several licensed major manufacturers in baseball like, say, a decade ago, but all of the recent product announcements are still proof that there’s no offseason for cardboard.

Visit any sports card and collectibles forum and you’ll likely see one of these types of posts — a recap of what arrived into a collector’s possession that’s one part “Check This Out!” and one part bragging.
