They put out baseball sets, but without an MLB license, the cards do not look good. I'll never be able to see logoless cards in a positive light. They just seem wrong.
It wasn't always that way for Panini, though. Long before they bought the Donruss name, they put out a licensed baseball product. From 1988 through 1996, Panini issued sticker sets.
Over the next few weeks I be posting the Cubs stickers from each of those years. Today I'll give you a preview look at a sticker from each of their nine releases.
1988 - their initial set, with sticker measuring 1⅞" x 2 11/16"
1990 - the sticker have a growth spurt and are now 2⅛" x 3"
1991 - Major shrinkage, as they now measure 1½" x 2 9/16"
1992 - They are back to the 1990 size of 2⅛" x 3"
1993 - Almost full sized at 2⅜" x 3⅜". Couldn't they have squeezed in that last ⅛??
1994 - Same size at '93
1995 - They shrunk again, to 1 15/16" x 3"
1996 - The final set, the stickers got a little wider, at 2⅛" x 3"
Panini didn't like being consistent with the sticker size, did they? There are six different sizes over the nine sets. But at least they have logos!
