2013 Panini Golden Age - First Peak

I bought one pack of this product at a card show last Sunday, not having any idea what it was. It's Panini's attempt to cash in on the popularity of Topps Allen and Ginter and Upper Deck's Goodwin Champions. My opinion - I love these cards! Enough that I bought a box on eBay. So this is just a first peek, a more detailed post to follow when I get my box.

I also bought a box of 2013 Goodwin Champions, so I'm kind of ODing on vintage style cards. I hope you like these as much as I do.

It didn't hurt my enjoyment of this set by having this being the first card I saw.

You can reel me in with a Richie Ashburn card every time.  Of the 4 base cards in the pack, 3 were baseball players and one was an actor in his role as a baseball player.

No logos of course. At least they give the city so with a player like Fisk you can tell what team he's depicted with. Although I guess with Fisk it wouldn't have been that difficult to figure out.

Freehan was a big time player from 1961 to 1975. Somehow this is the first card of his I've ever gotten.

OK, it's a Little League player but his character played baseball.

Of course, there is a selection of mini parallel cards. I got one, the Carolina Brights Green Back version.
And there was one other insert, Panini Golden Age Playing Cards.  There are 53 of these (one joker).

I really like the Golden Age playing cards insert set. Everything else, is just kind of bleh for me.
