Johnny Bench 2012 Panini Cooperstown

Because of what Panini has to do to remove all MLB team names and logos from their product, I am sure that it takes a lot more work and a very critical eye to make sure that they play by the rules to avoid any possible lawsuits from major league baseball or Topps.

With that being said, I am not certain that choosing and using horizontal images for their Panini Cooperstown set was the best idea. 

Simply stated, the cropping and zooming just looks way too intentional.  A vertical image allows for a more zoomed-out photo to be used and makes hiding the team logos a lot less obvious – at least in my eyes…

Have a peek at the card and tell me if you agree:

  1. I’m not sure about the vertical vs horizontal thing but it’s all a compromise. It’s either this or Johnny in a checked sports coat. Which do you prefer? At least Panini is making Ron Santo cards.
