Without a doubt, Panini is my preferred baseball card company. To be fair, this is primarily due to their Cooperstown releases. While recent years’ releases have seen them shift more toward the high-end, the first two years were, and still are, some of my favorite cards. As the product only focuses on Hall of Fame players, there are a number of cards to chase, for those of use who are player collectors.
2013 Panini Cooperstown #93 Carlton Fisk
This version, numbered 163/325, is the Matrix parallel. Though it appears red in the scan, the card is actually orange, with a shiny metallic hue. All told, there are 6 parallels of the base cards (if one counts the black crystal 1 of 1). With this card, I now only need that elusive “Black Crystal Shard” to complete this rainbow. So in other words, I can check this set off my list.
