2024 Panini Stars and Stripes Baseball value

2024 Panini Stars and Stripes Baseball is a hits-driven product that is all about amateur talent.

But do these boxes hold their value when bought and held unopened? Let’s see what recent comp prices of hobby boxes from the last few years can tell us.

YearRecent Comp Price
2024$95-100
2023$70-80
2022$80
2021$75

These prices suggest that 2024 Panini Stars and Stripes Baseball are likely to hold their value, but significant gains when held unopened are unlikely.

In terms of singles, what can recent comps for 2023 Panini Stars and Stripes cards tell us about the value potential in these boxes?

The high water mark is a SSP Kaboom! insert of Rangers prospect Wyatt Langford, with a couple of sales at $525. A Dylan Crews Kaboom! sold for $395. Beyond the Kaboom! inserts, a Jackson Holliday Batting Glove Insert (/3) sold for $305 and a Dylan Crews Jumbo Material Shoe Relic (/4) sold for $300.

A number of additional cards sold for north of $150, meaning there’s some potential here for ROI and value. The hits don’t appear to be earth-shaking, however, and the chance of ROI if of course no guarantee.

2024 Panini Stars and Stripes Baseball pros & cons

Every product has pros and cons to consider when deciding whether to purchase and break them. What are some of the pros and cons associated with 2024 Panini Stars and Stripes Baseball?

Pros:

  • The players featured in 2024 Panini Stars & Stripes are in most cases going to be getting their very first cardboard appearance, so you can get in on the ground floor with these players.
  • There appears to be at least some opportunity for return on investment with these boxes based on recent comp prices of top singles.

Cons:

  • It may take several years for some of these players to make the big leagues, unless you’re a top amateur baseball fan, knowing who the big hits are may be a bit tricky.
  • With players as young as 13, there are going to be players in this product that never play professionally, or even in the US…not an appealing idea if a player like that is your biggest hit in the box.  
  • Prospects, especially amateur ones, are always high risk (and potential high reward).

Final thoughts on 2024 Panini Stars and Stripes Baseball

2024 Panini Stars and Stripes Baseball is a fairly inexpensive, fun break with lots of hits (especially in a hobby box). If you’re a fan of Team USA, a prospect chaser, or just are looking for a fun break with at least some potential for ROI, 2024 Panini Stars and Stripes Baseball is worth a look.
