Drool Gallery: The Early On-Card Autograph Arrivals for 2011-12 Certified Hockey

October 8, 2011

It seems like just yesterday that we were closing the book on Panini America’s historic first season in the NHL with the release of 2010-11 Dominion Hockey. But in another sure sign that the hockey trading card season never truly ends, know this: In the span of the next month or so, we’ll have released our first two products of the 2011-12 NHL season.

We’ll drop the puck at the end of October with 2011-12 Score Hockey, then follow it up a few weeks later with 2011-12 Certified Hockey.

In light of that, and in an effort to properly honor the start of the 2011-12 NHL season earlier this week, we figured an exclusive sneak peek at some of the newest on-card autograph arrivals for Certified was in order. What you’re about to see represents just the tip of the iceberg as it relates to 2011-12 Certified’s autograph content, but it will give you keen insight into the star-laden, generations-spanning signatures you can expect.

Enjoy the gallery, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage of our upcoming hockey products.

    First off, Tracy, this is a Saturday, dont you get any days off from the best job in the world?? :). Hopefully you have the rest of the weekend off to enjoy. But, anyways, These are very nice. The gold Teams standout big time. I kept scrolling up and down and those looked great and I could easily pick them out. I really like on card autos, but I like sticker graphs as well. Throwback threads are sweet as well.

    On-card-auto nirvana.

    I really like the Modano throwback, but seeing the old North Stars logo makes me miss the early ’90s.

    These are awesome! Featuring guys like Randy Moller and Pronger wearingnthe Whaler jersey is one of a kind. This is what I am talking about, your attention to history and detail is second to none.
    What about a Giguere in the Whaler logo? Or a St. Louis with the Flames?

        i think that we are ALL still waiting on a bunch of these cards. It a shame that Stepan still hasnt signed alot of his stuff. There are only a few cards of his i am missing and the #197 is one i wish would hurry along already.

    Is a release date set for Score?

    Checking out these photos and my response is a big “WOW”. I have to admit I was no fan of last year’s Certified, sticker autos and parallel hell. But here, the card design for Eternals, Freshman Sigs, Collision Course, and Gold Team is AMAZING. With on-card autos to boot. You’ll notice I didn’t metion Throwback Threads in the above statement – because as a long time hockey fan, that subset is BEYOND amazing. Atlanta Flames, Barons, Rockies? Those are amazing looking cards, well designed. Great photos, and plenty of room for an auto and a prominent logo. To me, that looks like a subset I will want to chase. Can’t wait for the checklist!

    This looks to be a big step up from last year’s Certified set. Really looking forward to seeing these cards once they’re live, looks like some really great stuff here!
