The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2013-14 Crown Royale Hockey (63 Images)

March 4, 2014

Panini America 2013-14 Crown Royale Hockey QC (35)

Panini America Hockey Brand Manager Chris Barr was at it again last week, dispensing drool and generating hype during another riveting Twitter takeover of the Panini America account, this time during packout 2013-14 Crown Royale Hockey. Although the product doesn’t release until next Wednesday, Barr provided enough live-from-the-production-line sneak peeks to keep the hockey Twitterverse buzzing at least until then.

From first looks at such brand staples as Rookie Silhouettes and Panini’s Choice Awards to a regal selection of memorabilia cards, Barr provided glimpses of just about everything 2013-14 Crown Royale Hockey has to offer. Some of the highlights . . .

OK. Now that you’ve seen some of the Tweets from last Thursday. Let’s get into the full-blown Quality Control Gallery — after all, there was still some packing out left to do once Barr logged off Twitter. The gallery that follows details some of the things you may not have seen last week. Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage of 2013-14 Crown Royale Hockey.

    Tracy, How many silhouettes per case? I have heard there are four, but was just wondering. Amazing cards for sure! A Winner!

      Just got this from Hockey Brand Manager Chris Barr: “At least 4 rookie silhouettes per case. At least 2 veteran unsigned per case. Veteran signed ones are randomly inserted.”

        Nice gallery as always Tracy! Quick question. Any social signatures in this one? Is the plan to put the remaining social sigs into the remaining product lines prior to June? Thanks friend!

        Yes, sir. There are Social Signatures in here. Not sure exactly where all the Social Signatures will fall, but they will be spread across the remaining products.

    Excellent return for CR to hockey this year, those prime rookie swatches are definitely going to be chased as they make some of the best RC sets of the year in any sport. Thanks for the preview Tracy!

    This product will be missed out on the market next year 😦 Guess the NHL and NHLPA never looked at outstanding products like this before making their decision.

    It is going out with a bang though! Huge fan of the autograph silhouettes! Beautiful!
