A New Vin Scully Baseball Card is Available

It's about time.

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. 

#65 Vin Scully

Here is a list of the different cards available:
  • Dark brown bordered base card
  • Green Crystal Shard - 1:4 packs
  • Blue Crystal Shard #/499 (1:8 packs)
  • Red Crystal Shard #/399 (1:12 packs)
  • Matrix #/325
  • Gold Crystal Shard #/299 (1 per box)
  • Black Crystal Shard 1/1
UPDATE:  I though I would add pics of all the different variations below
