The base set

The size of the base set for Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball 2023 has not yet been announced, but based on prior years we can expect something in the range of 150-200 cards.

The checklist consists exclusively of prospects, including 2023 Draft Picks, players in the Dominican Prospect League, and other young up-and-comers. With Panini not having licenses with MLB or the MLBPA, there are no team logos on the cards, standard for Panini releases in recent years. Many players appear in their college uniforms.

The lack of logos won’t diminish the star (or potential future star) power here. 2023 top 10 picks include Paul Skenes, Dylan Crews, Jacob Wilson, Chase Dollander, and more

Parallel versions of the base set cards will be available, although the exact offerings and print runs have not yet been announced. We do know that 1-of-1 Die-Cut Black Parallels are a hobby exclusive.

Autographs & autographed memorabilia

Autographs, seeded 8 per box, are a big part of the appeal of 2023 Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball.

Base Autographs leverage the base set design and feature signatures of some of the hottest young prospects in the game. Parallels will also be available, although exact details have not yet been released.

Future Threads Signatures include both an autograph and a relic.

Epic Prospect Materials Signatures also offers the autograph and relic combo, but with a horizontal design.

Relics in the set

With unsigned memorabilia cards falling two per box, they serve as an additional hit and a great way to add some early career fabric to your collection.

First Round Materials offers up a relic for a top young player, including many top 10 draft picks from 2023.

Inserts

In addition to the autographs and memorabilia cards several insert sets are also available as part of 2023 Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball.

Collectors will find Higher Learning, Future Star Status and Spellbound insert offerings.

Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball 2023 value

2023 Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball brings the prospect and the ink. But is it a good candidate to buy and hold unopened? Let’s see what recent comps of hobby boxes from the last few years can tell us.

2023$100
2022$70
2021$70-80
2020$50-60

The prices and trends here suggest that the 2023 Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball is a product best opened, not held sealed.

In terms of singles, we can look at recent eBay comps for 2022 Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball singles in PSA slabs and see what they can tell us.

The results are interesting, to say the least. There isn’t a single sale over $100 for either 2022 or 2021 Panini Elite Extra Edition cards graded by PSA.

Also, the results had a number of PSA 7 and PSA 8 cards, suggesting these may not come out of the packs in gradable form.

Looking at raw cards, the numbers are quite a bit more promising. The high water mark is a 2022 Panini Elite Extra Edition Elly De La Cruz Gold Auto /10, which sold for $400.

A 2022 Elite Extra Edition Junior Caminero /5 Red Stars Auto sold for $300. From there, prices mostly drop below $200, with a decent number of cards in the $100-200 range.

While these are tougher pulls, the possibility of making your money back on a box break, while not guaranteed, certainly exists.

Final thoughts on 2023 Elite Extra Edition Baseball

2023 Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball is a moderately priced prospect-themed set that brings lots of ink, but no licensed logos. It feels like a product that is made to break, not hold unopened.

While the chances are you’ll pull many cards of players who never see even a cup of coffee in the majors are good, there’s also a chance at grabbing an early numbered autograph of the next big thing!
