Is Panini bringing National Treasures to baseball?


 By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

The high-end National Treasures line that has been in the Donruss/Playoff and now  Panini America portfolio for some time with football and basketball just might be headed to the baseball diamond soon.

How do we know?

Former Atlanta Braves slugger Dale Murphy tweeted photos of the cards as he signed them on Monday on his account, @DaleMurphy3.

The product has not yet been teased by Panini America.

    Whatever the color is who cares……. It’s Baseball… and it certainly looks high end. There is a god. Thank-you Panini.
    P.S.- It certainly looks like a National Treasures Logo in upper left hand corner. Yes

    If you pay them they wil sign. It has taken them awhile I guess Panini would have rather made this effort after securing a MLB/MLBPA LISCENCE I guess that is taking longer to aquire.
    Certainly you can’t blame Panini for putting forth the effort the Mlb has to be the last of the major sports without a National Treasures innagral product on the market -makes sense.
    Just wondering if we will get a good crop of HOF’S.
    Personally I can’t afford any i repeat ANY -NAT TREAS, PRODUCT OR EXQUISt OR WELL YOU NAME IT if it’s 200,300+. Unless I hit the lottery.
    I just hope it isn’t crammed with a lot of Prospects that would blow.
    Just saying

    Those look absolutely ridiculous. This airbrush crap has got to stop. I had rather have the colorful refractor Leaf product than the same old boring look of Panini’s non licensed product. Either get a license or get out.

    While Panini has the MLB Players Ass. signed they need to get MLB Properties also . The most recent products they have had with MLB players have flopped and not been worth the price .

    No offense but i think should focus on color prints not blue ink from the printer. Maybe the could afford color ink maybe a suggestion i think if your going to be paying that much for a pack of cards. I don’t know maybe a little quality control would help them out. Go back to a good product not junk.

    These look absolutely awful like almost every Panini product, and they will all but certainly be the worst value on the market, again like almost every Panini product. How or why people buy Panini anything is beyond me. They are so, so bad. Donruss was great, Upper Deck was pretty good, and Fleer made a lot of great sets as well, but Panini is only consistent in their junk. To me they are a complete detriment to the hobby.
