Thoughts on 2012 Panini Golden Age
Golden Age features a retro theme (I feel like it is much like Topps 206 or Gypsy Queen) with an assortment of older ball players as well as other celebrities, etc. Kind of Panini's answer to Allen and Ginter or UD Goodwin. I was very happy when the last card in the second pack was Brooks Robinson. So, right away, I had something to add to my PC. Scored some points in my mind, haha. The Brooks was the above Stand UP insert. I love the sepia tone on the card. Really sharp, and nice looking, in my opinion.
In my opinion, I think Panini is doing a great job with their products. I loved Cooperstown and I definitely like Golden Age. I'm not too big on the non-sports folks in the product, but again, this seems to be Panini's answer to Allen and Ginter or UD Goodwin. Golden Age stacks up very well to Goodwin, that's for sure. I've always been partial to Topps and A&G, but I do believe there is room in the MLB licensing wars for two brands and I would definitely not have a problem with Panini joining the fray.
