Panini QC Gallery: 2010-11 Pinnacle Hockey
The anticipation is tangible. The expectations are high. In seven short days, hockey collectors will have, for the first time since 1997-98, a new Pinnacle set to call their very own. Hey, what’s another week when wistful hobbyists have waited almost 15 forlorn years now?
Judging by this exclusive and exhilarating first look at live cards from 2010-11 Pinnacle Hockey (courtesy of the initial quality control check conducted by Panini America NHL brand gurus Al Muir and Clint Hall), one more week may feel like an eternity.
The product is bolstered by the use of boldly reimagined Dufex technology — dubbed “Nufex” — and a wealthy dose of modern amenities that weren’t exactly common when Pinnacle last appeared on the market more than a decade ago.
We hope you find the following sneak peek indicative of a new-generation Pinnacle that’s well worth the wait.
