Panini America Unveils Special Card Set for the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
This afternoon in Philadelphia, the puck will drop on the Bridgestone 2012 NHL Winter Classic — one of hockey’s favorite annual outdoor events — and Panini America will be there.
Fans entering Citizens Bank Park later today will find a special five-card pack of Panini America Winter Classic cards inserted into their commemorative seat cushions. Those five cards will get fans and collectors started on building the complete 20-card base set.
In addition to the 20-card base set (see the checklist attachment below), there are 1/1 autographed versions of each card in the set. If you’re not lucky enough to attend today’s Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, you can at least get your first look at the set below to know what to look for on the secondary market.
