2012 SP Signature Baseball 3-Packs




2012 SP Signature is a unique and fun product.

Each box contains 3 packs of 3 cards. All cards are sticker, certified autos. 3 per box are dual autos.

No pictures or team logos on cards.

The result is a straightforward, fun break for hitseekers. In the past I've pulled a Red Sox quad auto (Yaz/Rice/Lynn/Evans), Duke Snider Auto, and some other cool ones.

Boxes run $90 right now. Lets see how I did...



Austin Maddox is first, now in the Red Sox system.



D-Lee! Not too shabby. 300+ homers, couple of ASG's.



Double Auto... Pedro Alvarez and Colton Cain. The latter hasn't made the bigs yet.

Next pack...



Looks like I cut off some of these scans. Sorry. Jhoulys Chacin... how fun is that to say.



Luke Hochevar... at 30 years old a solid, average pitcher.



A couple Mariners here. This break isn't super impressive so far.

Oh well, one more pack...



Danks/Flowers... looks like I'm not hitting a quad auto today...



Ian Kennedy. No disrespect, solid player, but this hit is still looking like a dud... just one more...



WOAHHHHHH...

Okay! Albert! I can live with this break. I can definitely live with this break.

It's a shame they lost the MLB license as these cards would've been nice with a pic. I would've dropped my drawers pulling the Pujols!

Its a tradeoff. No license, more hits, lower price. License, nicer cards, higher resale. The original price ($239) was steep but reasonable... at $89, its a no brainer.
