It’s coming. 2011-12 Dominion Hockey — the high-end juggernaut that’s easily one of the most anticipated products of the entire 2011-12 season — will be here before you know it. (The crowd erupts.)
And here’s one surefire way I know it’s getting closer: Last week, amid the frenzy of activity surrounding 2011-12 Prime Hockey and getting that beauty ready for, well, prime time, I noticed a most sublime shipment of cards delivered hot off the presses from the Panini America printing facility.
The contents of those boxes — subtly labeled “Dominion” — were absolutely stunning: The set’s Rookie Card “jersey number” variations graced with goose bump-inducing prime patches and enough wow factor to last weeks. All that’s missing now are the on-card autographs — and that process began in earnest the minute the cards arrived in house. But before they went back out, I snapped a few pics to set the scene for what to expect as we build toward Dominion’s release.
So consider this your first fantastic preview of “live” cards from 2011-12 Dominion Hockey. I promise you, it won’t be your last.

Wow, those look awesome. I need to get my hands on a box or two of those.
Wow, Amazing!!! Please send Flyer Cards to me!!!
These are some beautiful hope that the football looks as good as the Hockey!!!
And by “football,” we assume you mean National Treasures. 🙂
Wow!! those are nice, looks like it should be another nice product.
Oh man……looks absolutely sick. Can you tell me if there will be any Anton Lander in Dominion?
From Chris Barr, our trust NHL Brand Manager: “Anton Lander will be well represented in Dominion. He will have a Rookie Autograph Patch and he will also be featured in many of the Dominion insert sets.”
Incredible to say the least…I am amazed!
Is Justin Faulk in this set?
Yes, sir. Justin’s in here.
What’s the word on pricing per box? (so I can get my fund started soon if not immediately) Thanks.
Any Teemu Hartikainen or Ryan Jones?
Hartikainen is in. Jones is not.
Are those cards from a parallel set? I noticed that each card is #’ed to the player’s jersey. Are the rookies going to be like those in Titanium or should we expect a regular set #’ed 99 or more?
Gorgeous patches, though, I am really impressed with the way Panini’s finishing with 11-12 products and I really feel like the best is yet to come!
These are Rookie Card variations numbered to the player’s jersey number. These are not the base RCs. We’ll share those at a later date. 🙂
Absolutely gorgeous cards. So Tracy, when can we expect to something this beautiful in basketball releases? 😉
Stay tuned, my good man. Stay tuned. Although Gold Standard sure does look pretty beautiful.
Is David Rundblad going to be a Coyotes or Sens pull? I’d guess Coyotes but I have seen him be Sens in a few of the later products as well. Also is his jersey # parallel going to be to his Coyotes #2 or to his Sens #7? I was a bit confused that he is featured in Titanium as a Coyote, but is serial numbered to his Sens jersey number.
Is that awesome Panthers patch belong to Gudbranson? These look so great.
Indeed it does.
T, are any of the materials used in this set for the rookies game used?
Also, Austin is missing his token images of Kopitar from your products.
You need to get on that and/or let us know how well represented he is.
Thanks as always!
Will Hodgson / Kassian be featured in their current team uniforms?
Will there be any Cameron Gaunce in this?
