2013 Panini America's Pastime

Card Manufacturer: Panini
Card Set: America's Pastime
Year:  2013
Card Number: 127
Card Type: Base
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 044/125

I just finally was able to get my hands on this one.  Panini's America's Pastime wasn't as high end as National Treasures, but it's still a pricey pack at about $225 and base cards are all numbered to 125.  Each box had one pack of 10 cards.  You got 1 book card, 3 autographs, 2 relics, 1 to 2 inserts, and 2 to 3 base cards numbered to 125 or less.  Each base card has 3 parallels.  The gold numbered to 25, the green foil numbered to 10 and the black 1 of 1 cards.

Robin's card in #127 in the set and while I give Panini some slack for not having the MLB license to use logos this picture is one of the worst I've seen used.  The overall design isn't bad, but this card looks more like something I would have pulled out of a food issue back in the late 80's instead of a $200+ pack of cards. And these are kind of hard to find. I'm guessing that not many people are rushing out to bust an expensive non-licenesed product.   But still a great addition to the collection.

  1. That is not an attractive card...looks like they aren't fetching very high prices on eBay either...
