The Quality Control Gallery: 2010-11 Playoff Contenders Hockey (First of Two Parts)

May 06, 2011

The Panini America hockey team — veteran puckheads Al Muir and Clint Hall — made history on Friday by becoming the first two people on the planet to bust the history-making first boxes of 2010-11 Playoff Contenders Hockey. (Some guys have all the luck.)

For the record, their enviable opening ceremony was work-related. Muir and Hall were conducting the quality control process for the highly anticipated product that begins shipping early next week.

Luckily for all of us, they shared some of their findings with us in the form of a massive gallery. Since it’s late in the day on Friday, we’ll showcase some of their pulls now. But you’ll have to return to The Knight’s Lance on Saturday for the rest of this revealing sneak peek.
