Redemption Mailday – Tony Perez ’12 Playoff Prime Cuts Significant Signatures

Photobucket

Happy New Year!!!  If you recall, a few weeks ago I broke and reviewed a box of 2012 Playoff Prime Cuts Baseball.  One of the “hits” I pulled was a redemption for a Tony Perez Significant Signatures autograph #’ed/25.  Just out of pure curiosity I redeemed it to see how long it would take to receive.  Yesterday in the mail it arrived.  It was redeemed on 12/8/12 and came on 12/31/12.  Not bad at all.  That has to be the fastest redemption ever fulfilled for me.  I don’t have a lot of luck when it comes to redemption cards.  Usually they take forever and sometimes you get sent a replacement.  This was a good experience.

Rockies Prime Cuts Contest! – NOW CLOSED

2012 Playoff Prime Cuts Baseball Box Break & Review

Design:  Photobucket

Upon opening my box and viewing other cards online, all I can say is that the design is quite simple.  A large portion of the autographs are on-card, but that opens up the opportunity for a lot of redemptions especially when it comes to Panini.  When it comes to high-end products I believe having logos and team names make all the difference too.

Price: Photobucket

Boxes are currently selling for around $150.00 – I think they’re drastically overpriced.

“Hit” Quality: Photobucket

Inside each box you’ll only find two cards.  No base, inserts, or funky parallels.  It gets straight to the “hits”.

I pulled the following:

Auto

  • Tony Perez Significant Signatures Auto Redemption #’ed/25 – I redeemed this just to see how long it takes to arrive.  Perez has other autographs within Prime Cuts that aren’t redemptions.  I guess he didn’t stick around for these.  It probably has to do with being an on-card signature.

Relic

  • Troy Tulowitzki Jersey #’ed/99

Overall: Photobucket

Overall, I give 2012 Playoff Prime Cuts Baseball 3 Pipino Knights out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  Just like with ’12 Signature Series Baseball, its the price that gets to me the most.  Based on what I pulled, its just way too expensive.  My favorite part of this product are the relics of older players that you don’t see that much – Burleigh Grimes, Lefty Williams, Miller Huggins, and “Shoeless” Joe Jackson.
