Panini America Ready to Honor Dallas Stars Legend Mike Modano with Special Card Set

March 8, 2014

Panini America Mike Modano Tribute Front (6)

Late last year inside the Panini VIP Party in Toronto, NHL legend Mike Modano, if only temporarily, went from being one of the greatest players in hockey history to being one of the greatest Brand Managers in trading card history. Working with Panini America’s Scott Prusha, Modano personally selected the nine favorite moments from his illustrious career that he’d most like to see honored in a special trading-card tribute.

Tonight, almost four months later, that trading-card tribute becomes a reality along with yet another Modano milestone. The Dallas Stars will retire Modano’s No. 9 jersey during tonight’s game against the Minnesota Wild and every fan entering the America Airlines Center will receive the nine-card Panini America Modano set.

Although we’ve been teasing the nine Modano moments all week long on the Panini America Twitter handle, today we’re bringing you up close with the entire set — fronts and backs. There will be a 10th card added to the set — a card using photography from tonight’s celebration that will be distributed to Dallas Stars fans during next Friday’s game against the Calgary Flames.

Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of the Mike Modano tribute. But now, check out the Modano-approved, Modano-selected nine-card set.
