For many passionate hockey collectors, the 2013-14 NHL trading card season simply can’t get here fast enough. In fact, everyone at Panini America is so excited that we’re releasing our first product of the season — 2013-14 Score Hockey — in early July, more than one month earlier than 2012-13 Score Hockey.
Score’s every-collector appeal will return at full strength for 2013-14 with a massive 550-card base set and more than 60 Rookie Cards, headlined by the first RCs and autographs of Nail Yakupov, Alex Galchenyuk, Vladimir Tarasenko, Jonathan Huberdeau and more. What’s more, 2013-14 Score Hockey will boast a downright girthy hobby configuration that features 10 52-card fat packs in every jumbo box.
That brawnier construction will lead to some unprecedented pulls for the Score brand, most notably one the product’s historic first memorabilia cards (the eight-piece Team 8s) and two autographs in every box. In addition, each 52-card pack will yield two Hot Rookies and four Gold Parallels.
2013-14 Score Hockey will also be graced by the return of popular brand staples such as First Goals, Check It, Net Cams, Future Team Score and Recollection Autographs featuring buyback autograph Rookie Cards of Mike Richter, Ed Belfour and more.
Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional updates on 2013-14 Score Hockey as the new earlier release date approaches, including a must-read, behind-the-scenes piece on just how the unique Future Team Score photography came about.
