Default Panini Peek: 2010-11 Pinnacle Hockey

Panini Peek: 2010-11 Pinnacle Hockey

December 17, 2010 at 3:10 AM



Three months from now, at a time when most young hipsters are smack dab in the middle of spring break, Panini America will be giving hockey purists the real reason to party with the serendipitous return of Pinnacle Hockey after 12 seasons away.

The March 16 release of 2010-11 Pinnacle Hockey will mark the celebrated reemergence to the market of one of the sport’s most revered brands, complete with many of those true-to-its-roots touches that made the franchise so popular in the first place, including Museum Collection parallels and Artist’s Proofs.


“The whole team has really bought into what we’re trying to do with Pinnacle, and I think it will show on every card,” says Al Muir, Panini America’s Hockey Brand Manager. “From the photography to the reinvention of the card back — seriously, you’ll want to check these out — this will be a base set that any hockey fan will want to spend hours with. On top of that, we’re cramming four autograph and/or memorabilia hits into every box. Then there’s the Museum Collection, the Artist’s Proofs, the Tough Times ’70s insert … every box should be a blast to bust. We think this is going to be the start of something really big.”

Indeed, to Muir’s point, every box of the product should yield four autograph or memorabilia cards, four Museum Collection parallels, four Ice Breakers Rookie Cards, one Artist’s Proof parallel and one Tough Times insert card. The autograph/memorabilia card lineup is bolstered by the likes of Pinnacle Threads, City Lights, Pinnacle Penmanship and Rookie Team Pinnacle Signatures to name four.

In all there are 50 Ice Breakers RCs on the checklist, including 20 that are autographed.

Enjoy the following preview images from the 2010-11 Pinnacle Hockey and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for more information on the product.

Wow, Epic fail here. Where is the dufex parallel? You can't tell me this is more expensive to make when the technology is 17 years older. Man Panini hockey has been disappointing this year. It takes a lot of suckage to make Upper Deck look good.

My all time favorite insert set was from 93-94 pinnacle-it was the Masks with the dufex. I still have that Vanbiesbrouck card I pulled, I was about 12 at the time and all of my buddies tried to trade for that card. One of the top 3 favorite cards I own. I think I got it out of a jumbo pack back then for like 4 bucks.

Jesus...

I'm gonna re-sort my old Pinnacle from 92-93 with the 'anatomy breaking point' inserts and the GREEN rookie.

I love the Masks from the mid 90's, too! My favorite hockey insert sets. Beautiful cards. Panini blew it.

Well said KMD- what a huge disappoinment these jokers have been. I did not think anyone could be worse but I was wrong.
