Yesterday afternoon from the cozy confines of the front lobby at Panini America HQ, Chris Barr and Tracy Hackler sat down with a few boxes of the live-today juggernaut known as 2013-14 National Treasures Hockey for this special episode of Panini Unwrapped. In addition to exploring some of the manifold brilliance housed inside the glossy black boxes of the product, Barr and Hackler also offer some inside information on a few late-arriving autographs that narrowly missed packout but are available for immediate redemption (Sidney Crosby, anyone?).
The two also discuss the incomparable Don Cherry and his penchant for sending personal messages to players on their autograph boxes. Enjoy the video and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance this weekend to discover how you can a box of 2013-14 National Treasures of your very own.
After the video, be sure to check out the gallery below to see some of the aforementioned Crosbys and a few of Cherry’s priceless message boxes.
