Default Panini Anthology

Anyone see this stuff yet? Supposedly comes out in June. Looks like a hodge-podge of different products, a la Panini Preferred from basketball.

My distributor had some information on this product. Since Panini started with NHL products it has been incredibly hard to find value in their releases. They did ok in 2010/11 with Crown Royale but since then its been VERY bad. I dont see this being any different. Upper Deck seems to be king in Hockey and Panini a DISTANT last. That being said its about time they try some new designs even if they were used a decade ago.

I actually like the concept. Some good rookies werent included in the popular rookie silhouettes set, the treasure cards look cool. But yeah, no real "brand" for this release, and if it doesnt do well it wont be coming back

Just another hodge podge release. If this year's rookie class had a better year, hockey would be doing better. Good time to get singles, not boxes.

Hello Rookie Update... they could have at least called it Calder. Jeesh, taking two good franchises and flushing them down the crapper.

my only positive is I would like to get some Carl Hagelin cards in my collection so these late season releases can't come soon enough for me as a singles buyer
