From what I have seen at my LCS and what's on Ebay I am going to pass on this product. The design is plain and the Rookie Auto Logo Cards are Ugly IMO and based on the price per box and what little value I've seen from breaks this looks like a loser,

Limited has been one of my favorites in basketball and especially football this year. I intended on doing a few boxes of this today but stopped after one as I didn't really love it and had already seen some pretty rough breaks of it so far.

I'm sure some of the stupid parallels Panini loads stuff up with will sell well. It's looking like a really rough product though...all the redemptions don't help either. I hate the look of the cards. I see a Toews Shield was already pulled and even a card like that looks kind of ugly. I guess I know now why Panini didn't really show anything about this product besides the sell sheet.

I'm still curious to see some of the other rare stuff that was advertised though. This stuff just looks like a huge money loser so far...even the Toews shield is up for just $500obo and hits like that will be few and far between. I am at least glad that it looks like Panini isn't flooding the market with event worn shields and such...at least not just yet.

I finally saw the "puck cards" mentioned on the sell sheet...those look pretty weak too.

I see they admit there are "a few redemptions" in the product but claim many are already ready to go.

I got too many redemptions with Certified, and I'm afraid to open any more Panini Hockey

I was planning on spending some X-mas money on it but after seeing breaks...no thanks. I'll just get the singles I need.

Calling it "Leaf Limited" is an insult to the product. Its Panini Limited. Leaf could never get a major 4-sport license.

After being forewarned about all the redemptions I decided to just rip 2 boxes. Lo and behold my 2 boxes contained 3 redemptions. LOL

Both boxes did however deliver some decent stuff so I can't complain.

Redemptions were :

Subban Material Phenoms auto RC
Yip Material Phenoms auto RC
Dino Ciccarelli Vintage Pucks auto

I see an Iginla puck listed on fleabay and I think its a pretty sweet looking card.

Here are the other nice hits :

Lemieux 6/10
Howard 19/50
Stastny 5/10

It's a pass for me.

Seriously, it looks bad even on the case hits.

Not impressed with Panini's first year so far.

I don't like the manufactured patch autos for the rookies. Hopefully next year they do them like they do with FB.

I always hate it when the jersey swatch does not match the pictured jersey - why even bother with that??

I watched a bunch of breaks and now instead of being afraid of this product, I'm horrified. No thank you Panini.

When Panini finds a way to make up for the disaster that I bought into with Certified, I'll think about it But right now I could care less for any of their products. Colossal failure by these guys in year one.

Yea, but at least they try to put the right team patch/swatch as pictured. I for one am really sick of Upper Deck putting a jersey piece *so and so* has not played on in years. Also, they have been quite great on getting photos of the players who switched teams this year. Upper Deck moves like sloths on that, lol. I personally feel Panini has put out nice sets and different than Upper Deck. Plus I really enjoy parallels and I thought Limited was really nice looking and my case had quite a few nice selling cards.

"I don't like the manufactured patch autos for the rookies. Hopefully next year they do them like they do with FB. "

They use these in football stuff. Is it really any worse than using rookie photo shoot jerseys in every product through The Cup? I see it as a pretty cool alternative and them trying different things. I got quite a few nice selling items in my case.
