    Ugh, Mantle cards without the classic NY logo.

    I'll never buy cards with blank caps and jerseys, no matter who's on them.

    The deal gives Panini the rights to incorporate Mantle’s likeness, cut autographs and memorabilia in up to six Panini trading card products a year. In addition, Mantle will be featured on Panini packaging on two trading card releases per season.

    Panini isn't allowed to show any Yankees wearing pinstripes so there won't be any for mantle.

    More Mantle cards is never bad, especially if they can get high-end material for National Treasures or whatever. But with the exception of Flawless diamond cards, I've had practically zero interest in Panini baseball stuff. I can't imagine this would get me to buy a box of something, though.

    When does the Topps exclusive end? It's soon, right? Maybe this is forward looking by Panini.

    Why can't they show pinstripe specific stuff?

    You mean with Mantle?
    I'm talking about MLB license. Seems it goes through 2020.

    Ah, my bad. I knew your question wasn't that easy I am not 100%, but 2020 sounds right. I'll look.

    I wonder if the Yankees copyrighted their pinstripes. I can't remember off the top of my head if Leaf had any airbrished Yankees uniforms in their Ruth 80 card set that left pinstripes on the uniforms while airbrushing logos. If Leaf had to airbrush those, the Yankee pinstripes might be in the same realm as logos as far as licensing.

    I think the Mantle boys did great with this deal. They are limiting Mantle's likeness and I totally agree about the comment about Topps overexposing Mantle -- too many 52T Mantle reprints, IMHO. I still think Topps way overdoes the reprint of various player vintage cards.

    When I was on a conference call with them a while back, I asked about the lack of pinstripes and they told me that legally they can't show them with their license.

    The lack of logos really kills that mantle card. Looks like he's wearing a t-shirt and my old little league hat

    I suppose MLBP won't issue Panini a one-player logo license (Topps has exclusive), Topps probably can't sublet a Yankee logo license to Panini for just Mantle cards (contract might say MLBP license can't be transferred or subleased), so there is only one solution... they have the urge to merge!

    imagine if Topps and Panini merged with all the licenses and sports they have.
