After nearly 65 years in the broadcast booth Vin Scully finally has a base card to call his own. Officially released this past Wednesday, Panini put out their 2013 Cooperstown set and it includes Vin Scully in the base set.
He is card #65, which is appropriate since he'll be returning as the Dodgers television broadcaster for a record 65th year next season.
Even better, since he is in the base set there are numerous parallels available. The normal card is a dark brown bordered card, and there are another 6 different parallel cards to chase after. Featured below is the "Blue Crystal Shard" parallel card numbered to just 499 copies.
