Looking for something different with your baseball cards? 2012 Triple Play Baseball is it. We're not talking traded players in new uniforms or some strange combination of serial numbered die-cut holographic reversed image rookie cards. 2012 Triple Threads offers a radically different art-based design unlike anything that has been seen in the modern hobby, at least on a large scale. Emphasizing interactivity and a low price, the set looks ideal for getting young collectors excited about the hobby.

Running about a dollar a pack, 2012 Triple Play Baseball offers a broad mix of base cards, puzzle cards, stickers, tattoos and other inserts. They encourage collectors to actually use the cards and connect with them. It's the kind of product parents can buy for their kids and not stress out when they end up getting stuffed in a pocket or stuck to a school agenda.

2012 Triple Play base cards use distinct artwork instead of traditional photos. Done in a cartoon style, players look exaggerated and larger-than-life. While the look may not appeal to some, it's not a bad thing. Many players look more like superheroes than baseball players. That's often how young people see professional athletes.

The style is also a great way around the fact that Panini cannot use Major League logos. The art is colorful enough that many won't even notice. The 2012 Triple Play Baseball set has 90 cards. Each also has a trivia question on the back.

2012 Triple Play Baseball also comes with several inserts. Many are meant to be used and played with. Eye Black stickers allow collectors to add another level of dress-up to their baseball uniforms. Made to be worn, the stickers have different designs that give a tattoo feel (in look, not durability). Focus zooms in on the eyes of one player from each team to stress their intensity.

2012 Triple Play Baseball is intended to be educational as well. Hall of Fame looks back on several first-ballot Cooperstown inductees. Not only are these the marquee names in the hobby, but they also share their greatness with a new generation. A little more practical is Baseball 101, which have playing tips and baseball-specific vocabulary.

And what would a modern set be without its hits? Real Feel have a piece of game-used memorabilia. Rather than focus on a player, they talk about the equipment itself and how they're made. While they may not appeal to hit seekers, the intention of 2012 Triple Play looks to be more about the game than the secondary market.

Product Configuration: 24 packs per box, 7 cards per pack
Price Point: Low-End Baseball Card
Target Audience: Young Collectors, Set Builders, Collectors Who Like to Play with Their Cards, Art Fans

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. Ryan can be found on Twitter @tradercracks and Google+.
