The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2011-12 Crown Royale Hockey (30 Images)

February 8, 2012 at 3:30 PM



My beautiful wife. My two wonderful sons. Sleeping in my own bed. The packout process for 2011-12 Crown Royale Hockey. Yep, those are the five things I missed the most while being on the road the last two weeks.

Last Friday, while the Panini America marketing team was running point on multi-level marketing activation at Super Bowl XLVI, the NFL Experience and the Pop Warner Panini Classic, the product development guys back home were fine-tooth combing 2011-12 Crown Royale Hockey, making sure it was ready for launch next week.


And judging by the results of the gallery that follows, Crown Royale is way ready, equipped with the classic Silhouettes and Rookie Silhouettes that need no introduction to the unique die-cutting of Heirs to the Throne to the compelling Voices of the Game autographs to, well, everything.

In the coming days, we’ll post the final product checklist. But until then, take this opportunity to become intimately familiar with just some of Crown Royale’s regal possibilities.

I want to say that I'm excited for this, but I'm still waiting for a Scratching the Surface auto from last year so, I can't get ahead of myself.

But a Panini rep said that there will be no auto, but on your death bed, you will receive total enlightenment....so you have that going for you.

I am glad they created new exciting cards for this set. Oh, they didn't? Surprising.

That I do, thanks to "dally lamma" Consider me that guy on here who overuses Carl Spackler quotes from here on out.

Looks good to me. Hope it is not loaded with redemptions. Wishful thinking I am sure.

Some terrible looking cards there, nothing more amateur than vertical cards with a vertical font running up the side. And twice to boot just in case you didn't see the first one.
