The UPDATED Debut of the 2010-11 Playoff Contenders Hockey Golden Ticket Tracker

July 7, 2011

First things first: We offer our sincere apologies for just now bringing you this first installment of the eagerly awaited 2010-11 Playoff Contenders Hockey Golden Ticket Tracker. It’s been a wild few months around these parts but we’ve finally devoted our full attention to chronicling the 20 pieces of precious 14-karat gold metal randomly buried inside packs of 2010-11 Playoff Contenders Hockey.

To date, there have been 10 Golden Tickets discovered (but only four redeemed), which means there are still 10 hiding around the hobby somewhere.

For those who don’t know, Panini America introduced the industry’s first 14-karat gold trading cards last winter in 2010 Playoff Contenders Football, creating a country-wide frenzy that still hasn’t completely subsided. That auspicious debut paved the way for the hockey counterpart to launch in the late-May release of Contenders Hockey.

You can see the exclusive first look at many of the hockey history-makers in the sizable gallery below. But first, here’s a snapshot of the Golden Tickets redeemed so far

(Editor’s Note: Thanks to our comrades at Sports Card Forum (notably Turner Shears and Knight’s Lance readers Richard McAdam and Matt Godbout), we’ve already made additions to this list by adding all known Golden Tickets that have been pulled but not yet redeemed):

    Just wondering when these will start shipping? I redeeemed the Bobrovsky on June 1st… 10 weeks shipping for the highlight of the product seems a bit odd, especially when they appear to have been in-house since this Blog Post appeared with scans on July 7th. Thanks!

    • August 11, 2011 1:03 pm

      Sorry for the delay, man. The most recent Golden Ticket report I have doesn’t have Bobrovsky listed. Let me look into it.

    • August 11, 2011 1:40 pm

      Confirmed and acknowledged. Card is going out today. Again, my apologies for the delay.

        Thanks Tracy. Can you email me a tracking number, as there is no info in my account on the redemption website?

      • August 15, 2011 9:49 am

        Email sent.
