I'm not bragging or anything, but I had the chance earlier today to bust two early hobby boxes of 2010-11 Donruss Hockey in the name of "quality control." Suffice it to say, I was impressed with what I saw and I'm quite certain you will be, too.

Donruss Hockey, which includes hockey’s celebrated Fans of the Game premiere, is another old-school-style set (on the heels of the highly successful Score release) that’s steeped in clean, wholesome design goodness and throwback collecting concepts that seem to be universally embraced.
Here’s betting you’ll be in a hugging mood when you get your first crack at this bad boy in early December.
What follows is a preliminary look at just some of the cards from two boxes. Stay tuned for additional peeks at 2010-11 Donruss Hockey in the coming days.

NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICE!!! where are the RRs? 🙂
Looking great, can we see a shot of the base card backs and a rated rookie or two?
I’ll work on that tomorrow for you.
Those look pretty solid. I’m lovin’ the Tough Times design and really cool effects on the Ice Kings cards. Is that an acetate card I see? I love me some acetate!!!
This is a pretty interesting looking product.
You bet your acetate it is.
hahaha, thanks Tracy.
Wow this stuff looks amazing!
Can you preview some more of the Linemate patch cards please? Also who is Anton Klementev?
Nice looking stuff. Anyone know how many cards will be in the base set?
According to the in-box checklist, Donruss Hockey will include a 300-card base set including 50 Rated Rookies.
I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited to see a Jay Miller autographed card in a set before!
I don’t think I’ve ever been excited to see Jay Miller in a set ever.
Who is Jay Miller?
Great set design!
Great Design and preselling well. Here’s the full product info on 2010/11 Donruss Hockey
Almost everything about this product is a win. Love the “Boys of Winter” taking off from the old “Boys of Summer” cards in baseball. Not impressed seeing Teddy Purcell in that set though.
Sneaky getting Mikey Mo in a Stars uniform and listing his wife as a Wings fan. Very sneaky. 😉
Fans of the game looks interesting. Hopefully there’s a few more Wings fans in the set.
Well obviously I will be building the Tough Times set and maybe the signed version too.
You got it right with this product, Panini!
