As collectors across North America celebrate today's release of 2013-14 Playbook Hockey, here's hoping the inaugural edition of the product is making as big an impact on you as it made on us during a sick seven-minute stretch yesterday afternoon inside the Panini Unwrapped studio. That's where Tracy Hackler and a gimpy but game Chris Barr ripped two boxes of the product for this special episode of Panini Unwrapped.
As collectors across North America celebrate today’s release of 2013-14 Playbook Hockey, here’s hoping the inaugural edition of the product is making as big an impact on you as it made on us during a sick seven-minute stretch yesterday afternoon inside the Panini Unwrapped studio. That’s where Tracy Hackler and a gimpy but game Chris Barr ripped two boxes of the product for this special episode of Panini Unwrapped.
While we could go ahead and tell you what we pulled in these two boxes, we think having you watch the video to find out would make much more of an impression. And despite suffering from a freshly ruptured Achilles tendon, Barr was still capable enough to bring in a few extra show-and-tell samples of Playbook possibilities.
It’s all included in the short, must-see video below. After the video, stick around to find out how you can win your very own box of 2013-14 Playbook Hockey.
OK, now that you’ve watched the video, let’s do a fun contest: If you had to write a book about 2013-14 Playbook Hockey, what would the title be? Give us your best, most creative answers. At the end of the week, we’ll pick five of our favorite titles and award the winners with a box of 2013-14 Playbook Hockey.
Good luck and thanks in advance for your participation.
