Panini Unwrapped Special Edition: A Birds-Eye View of 2010-11 Dominion Hockey

Not a day goes by without me pausing to think how cool my job really is. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some of the world’s most famous athletes, but when Ed Belfour walked through the door, I was excited for another reason. You see, it’s not always OUR heroes we encounter, it’s others we know and in the case of Belfour, my mom is one of his biggest fans.

Growing up, she proudly displayed a puck and card I got signed for her (along with Chris Chelios) over the fireplace. That’s right, HIS picture and not mine! I know what some of you are thinking, I’m not the best looking guy and some would argue that a picture of me would scare the daylights out of you. I’m not denying that…

For me to get the chance to interview the Hockey Hall of Fame’s newest goalie was a dream come true for me because my mom followed his every move (and I have to admit that I did too). We were fans of the “Eagle” when he took the Blackhawks to the Stanley Cup Finals, but he became the stuff of legends in my house when the “Eagle” landed in Dallas and helped our home team Dallas Stars win the Stanley Cup.  

But enough about the Prusha family, here’s a quick look at what Mr. Belfour was signing in our office for Dominion.

Dominion highlights include . . .

Bonded Silver multi-signed cards featuring the top names from some of hockey’s greatest stars that captured the Cup

The hockey debut of Pen Pals autographs featuring signatures of two, three or four hockey greats on one card

Notable Nickname cards that feature some of the more unique names in hockey history

The return of Nifty 50, one of the hobby’s most famous insert names, complete with on card autographs of hockey’s fabled single-season 50-goal scorers

Brass Bonanza on-card autographs that pay tribute to the legends of the Hartford Whalers

The unique Tape to Tape insert featuring autographs from stars on actual tape sliced from their game-used hockey sticks

  1. Great Interview! That Stickside Signatures with the Eagle head… One of the nicest cards I have ever seen without a doubt! It will be mine. I will do everything in my power to own that card!

  2. Is this product still slated for the 14th of September? Any way this product will be released earlier waiting for this is like having Christmas moved on you as a kid, I can’t wait.
    Great interview.

  3. Great to see “The Eagle” on some new stuff, always a favorite!!

    However, I’d say Brett Hull’s foot in the crease had alot to do with Dallas winning the cup…..NO GOAL!!!

    But still, Ed is the man!!

  4. How can you not love Eddie? A friend of mine, in Dallas, is actually related to that brother-in-law he spoke about so I’ve heard some great stories about Eddie over the past few years. Definitely a Hall of Fame player in his playing years though.

  5. Some truly amazing cards there. And yeah, that Stickside Signatures card with the eagle head is as good as it gets. I would kill for that card. I would donate a kidney for that card. Just waiting for Panini to tell me what I need to do to get it…
