Panini: We’re making Elite Extra Edition this year
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
As the rumors continue to swirl regarding baseball licensing news — whether a card company will be awarded some type of license by the MLB Players Association — Panini America announced a little something on Tuesday night during the Midsummer Classic.
“Many collectors have asked us about Donruss EEE Baseball in 2011,” read a tweet from the company. “Well . . . yes, we are doing it!”
What that means to collectors — how that will be accomplished since any MLB/minor league logos would protected for Topps products as part of those exclusive deals and any college logos would be protected by Upper Deck‘s exclusive with the Collegiate Licensing Company — remains to be seen … at least under the current licensing deals.
