Panini America 2012-13 Certified Hockey Rookie Redemptions (15)

After many months of intrigue, anticipation and buildup regarding the identities and designs of the 45 Rookie Redemption Cards randomly inserted into 2012-13 Certified Hockey and 2012-13 Limited Hockey, Panini America officials today are ready to reveal specifics on some of the most in-demand hockey cards of last season.

Most collectors will recall that Panini America inserted 15 Rookie Redemption Cards into 2012-13 Certified Hockey (for individual players) and 30 Rookie Redemption Cards into 2012-13 Limited Hockey (for specific teams) as a way to capitalize on the excitement of the 2013-14 Panini Double Rookie Class.
