Boasting the first autographed patch rookie cards of the new season, 2013-14 Dominion Hockey also returns venerable collection-makers such as Stickside Signatures, Tape to Tape Autographs, Engravatures, Peerless Patches and Silver Ensigns. But it’s the new additions, including the introduction of autographed game-worn glove leather and the stunning Ice Level Autograph Booklets that just might steal most of the early headlines.
Due out December 6, 2013-14 Dominion Hockey will deliver one Rookie Autograph Patch card, one autographed memorabilia card and at least two other autograph or memorabilia cards in every six-card box. The product also will include more Rookie Cards than ever before.
Other highlights include:
- Featuring the top NHL rookies of the star-studded Panini Double Rookie Class, each Rookie Autograph Patch card will feature an autograph, a prime piece of memorabilia and sequential numbered to 299 or less.
- Look for a variety of rare game-worn memorabilia, including jerseys, patches, fight straps, Laundry Tags, snaps, gloves, sticks and more.
- Each pack of 2013-14 Dominion Hockey contains at least one autograph memorabilia card; included on the insert roster? The return of Peerless Patch Autographs.
- Silver Ensigns and Rookie Ensigns feature autographed NHL Shields and each card is individually numbered to one.
- Two new Engravatures sets featuring 2012-13 Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks (numbered to 15) along with previous NHL champions (numbered to 10).
- Ice Level Autographs features a unique look at the top young stars from the Rookie Showcase. Each acetate booklet card contains an autograph and memorabilia piece, numbered to 50 or less.
