Paul Molitor 2012 Panini Cooperstown
Here is another, of the very few, card from the 2012 Panini Cooperstown set in which Panini did not have to do anything to hide a team name or logo and take away anything from the action that the image offers.
I’m happy to see that they sought out images like these – I just wish that they did it more often than what they actually did. I would think that it would be easier with players that starred in Molitor’s era simply because of the quantity of high-quality images taken during the 1980’s and 1990’s is sure to be greater than of prior decades.
Sure, the player might not be facing the camera or be providing the best angle for the photographer to give us a better shot, but at least we are getting real action, and no intentional cropping…
Thank you, Panini!!
