A Panini America Pre-Autograph Preview: 2011-12 Prime Hockey Prime Rookies

June 18, 2012

It’s always a little like Christmas morning around Panini America HQ when the first batch of Rookie Cards for a particular product arrive fresh from the printing facility. But that sensation was more intense than usual when the sweet, sizable-swatched memorabilia cards from the upcoming 2011-12 Prime Hockey arrived.

Panini America’s Acquisitions team was in something of a rush to get these gems — easily some of the most attractive hockey cards of the entire collecting season — counted and QC’d so they could expedite them to their respective next stops to receive on-card autographs, so I didn’t have a whole lot of time to snap pre-autograph pics.

But I darted back to the back of the office to grab as many savory sneak peeks as possible for the following gallery. Enjoy these first looks at the cards in their incomplete condition. The next time you see them, they’ll be complete with on-card autographs — and their status as some of the season’s top must-have RCs will be complete.
