2017 Donruss Optic Jameson Taillon Studio Auto
This is not a great looking card by any means, but we are showing signs of promise with getting around licensing issues. NO HAT!!!! One of the worst aspects in Panini cards is trying to hide team emblems on the uniforms. Many of us have discussed over the years ways to skirt the license issue. Certain poses by both pitchers and hitters when timed right do a good job of hiding most of the emblems, but you always have the hat. Of course Panini removed the hat but proceeded to cut off poor Jameson's forehead.
Few more ideas.
- How about some plain clothes shots of players at award shows or the All Star game.
- More shots of catchers.
- More prewar players.
Either way this was a step in the right direction.
Thanks for reading.
This K Cancer image of Jamo would have been a good shot and avoided the licensing issue.ReplyDelete
Shots of players at the All Star Game booths in their plain clothes would be quite an autograph set.ReplyDelete
Obviously the plain clothes shots would be limited, but I think this would be a great idea for one of their higher end sets like National Treasures.Delete
I still think Panini should make an all-catcher set one day. Backstops make for by far their best-looking cards.ReplyDelete
Catchers and pre war players seem to be their sweetspot.Delete
Compared to 2012 SP Signature, this card is AMAZING!ReplyDelete
Ha....that set was an absolute train wreck sticker dump.Delete
Didn't Studio do some plainclothes cards back in the early 90s where everyone kind of looks like a 1970s adult film star?ReplyDelete
They had a lot of head shots for the early 90's sets that could have easily doubled as snuff film pictures.Delete
