The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: Images from 2010-11 Luxury Suite Hockey

June 21, 2011

I knew it was going to be a high-quality afternoon when Panini America NHL Assistant Brand Manager Clint Hall came to see me just a bit ago. Hall, after all, never ventures this far south in the building unless he has a darn good reason.

And today, Hall had 20 darn good reasons — a heaping handful of luxurious hockey cards, just plucked from the preliminary QC process for 2010-11 Luxury Suite Hockey.

The higher-end Luxury Suite, set to start shipping next week, is the newest made-from-scratch hockey masterpiece from Panini America in which every card in the set is either a memorabilia card, an autograph card, an autographed memorabilia card or a Rookie Card.

Stay tuned later this week for an exclusive interview with NHL legend Al Secord, conducted during Secord’s in-house Luxury Suite signing session. But for now, enjoy the exclusive fist look at the first live cards from the product.
