2013 Panini Golden Age Baseball SP Variations Guide

2013 Panini Golden Age Baseball SP Variations Guide

2013 Panini Golden Age Baseball SP Variations offer a second take on 25 different athletes and pop culture personalities. Tough pulls, SP variations come with regular slightly tan borders as well as White Border parallels.

While the variations don't follow pattern on the fronts, they are easily to tell on the back. Short prints are noted with an "SP" notation next to the number. With this, some collectors who are apt to chase variations to go with their main sets may treat these as a separate insert set entirely.

Panini has given odds as to how rare the 2013 Panini Golden Age variations are, but early availability suggests that they are tough. This is doubly so when the white parallels are accounted for.

Below is a detailed look at the SP variations, including side-by-side comparisons of what to look for on the card fronts.
