Panini Peek Preview: 2011-12 Prime Hockey

April 17, 2012

The industry’s first game-worn hockey helmet decal cards? Check. The industry’s first hockey sweater lace cards? Check. One Rookie Auto Quad card numbered to 199 or less, one multi-memorabilia card, one autograph and an additional autograph or memorabilia card in every five-card pack? Check.
Clearly, Panini America’s 2011-12 Prime Hockey is — pardon the pun — primed for a staggering debut.

Prime Ties and Collision Course, the aforementioned history-makers, represent the innovative edge of this new release, but there are several other bells and whistles sure to appeal to hardcore hockey hobbyists, including:

  • Prime Rookies NHL Shields
  • Prime Rookies Auto Quad Memorabilia cards
  • Prime Combos Duals and Quads
  • Prime Signatures
  • Captain’s “C” and Alternate Captain’s “A” cards incorporating the captain’s “C” and alternate captain’s “A” from select game-worn jerseys
  • Genuine Marks, the first autographed, game-used nameplate letter cards
  • All-Star Signatures incorporating autographs signed on NHL All-Star Game locker nameplates
