Teaser Gallery: Panini America Busts Three Boxes of 2012-13 Prime Hockey (Checklist)
With the eagerly anticipated 2012-13 Prime Hockey now set to release in Canada tomorrow, we had to call an audible with this particular Panini America Teaser Gallery. Since the product won’t go live in the states until next Wednesday, our boxes aren’t slated to arrive at Panini America HQ until Monday morning — and for this product, that simply wouldn’t do.
So first thing this morning, I sent a text to Stephanie Carlson — Panini America’s Vice President of Production who typically starts her day at the company printing facility — asking (OK, begging) her to procure three boxes of 2012-13 Prime Hockey for us while she was there. Being the saintly woman that she is, Carlson obliged.
What follows, then, are the simply fantastic results of that effort: A three-box roller-coaster romp through one of the most enjoyable NHL trading card releases imaginable. As you’ll see, 2012-13 Prime Hockey looks to be more than capable of living up to — and surpassing — what have become extremely high expectations.
After the pack-by-pack gallery, stick around for the complete product checklist. Oh, and check back with The Knight’s Lance later tonight to watch a must-see Prime episode of Panini Unwrapped. Until then, enjoy . . .
