Half baseball, half "everything else," the 2012 Panini Golden Age Historic Signatures checklist has nearly 50 signers. Focusing primarily on subjects from the 1960s and 1970s, it's highlighted by an eclectic mix of athletes, authors and entertainers.

All autographs are signed on-card -- not a single sticker in sight. Photos are all black and white, sticking with the old-time theme (although one doesn't necessarily think of a world without color from the 60s and 70s).

The 2012 Panini Golden Age Autographs are like a mash-up of 2012 Topps Archives and Panini's Americana line. Save for a few subjects, there aren't a ton of household names, but most of fan favorites. Several signers are also rare signers within the hobby. For baseball players, Nolan Ryan and Al Kaline rank among the top players. Highlights in the rest of the set include Bill Walton, actress Barbara Eden and jockeys Ron Turcotte, Jean Cruguet and Steve Cauthen.

For pop culture fans, one of the more intriguing names on the 2012 Panini Golden Age Historic Signatures checklist is Maureen McCormick, known best as Marcia Brady from The Brady Bunch. This is the first-ever set McCormick has signed for. She is the last of the Brady kids to sign. Most recently, the other five all had autographs in the 2011 Rittenhouse The Complete Brady Bunch box set.

Below you'll find a near-complete gallery of the entire set. Arranged alphabetically by last name, this visual checklist also mentions what the signers are most notable for.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.

  1. Lots of 5 buck autos out of expensive boxes.Gets old after a while.Best to let someone else plunk down for the box and pick what you want.I know you dont get the thrill of opening but at least you wont get that feeling in your gut that you just wasted good money for a box of junk thats going to take up room in your house);
