Before the Autographs: Previewing 2011-12 Limited Hockey’s Back to the Future Insert

December 10, 2011

There’s a lot to like in the upcoming release of 2011-12 Limited Hockey. But one insert in particular — the dual-signed Back to the Future Autographs — is sure to be among the product’s most coveted inclusions.

Every card in the compelling insert unites one current superstar with one all-time great (along with their respective autographs), and the many generation-spanning, franchise-focused pairings will most certainly provide wantlist fodder for team collectors for years to come. (Of course, the card featuring Alex Ovechkin and Mark Messier isn’t bad, either.)

The following gallery showcases just some of the gems on the checklist, but it should pull the curtain just enough to whet the collective collecting appetite. The next time you see these beauties on The Knight’s Lance, they’ll be autographed. But when you’re talking about an insert this cool, we just couldn’t wait until then.
