2012 Panini Americana Heroes Edition Hobby Box

Along with my Game of Thrones season 3 box I ordered a 2012 Panini Americana box.  This set features U.S. Presidents, U.S. Women's National Soccer team players, astronauts and U.S. Olympians. Here are the highlights:

William McKinley Gold Press Proof
This card is numbered out of 10.

Walt Cunningham Silver Press Proof Memorabilia Card
Walt was the lunar module pilot for Apollo 7.  He also looks seriously cool in this photo.

Amy LePeilbet Autograph

Amy played for Arizona State University before turning pro.  A defender, she has no goals in over 80 appearances for her country.

Bonnie Blair autograph
Bonnie won 5 gold medals and 1 bronze during her career and was inducted into the US Olympic hall of fame in 2004.  She was the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year in 2004 along with Norwegian speed skater Johann Olav Koss.
