Must-See Gallery: Panini America Initiates Pre-Packout for 2011-12 Prime Hockey

August 6, 2012 at 1:18 PM



I returned to the office this morning following a whirlwind five days at the 2012 National Sports Collectors Convention to an email inbox overflowing with an array of stunning images from the upcoming 2011-12 Prime Hockey release.

Turns out Karvin Cheung, Panini America’s Director of Product Development for the NBA and NHL, is spending time at the printing facility today scrutinizing some of the product’s myriad mystifying memorabilia inserts in advance of next week’s packout. Thankfully, Cheung’s been kind enough to keep us updated all morning long via email.


Just so you’re seeing what he’s seeing, here’s a gallery of the previews he’s provided thus far today. As Cheung continues to send images, we’ll update this gallery as the day progresses. Until then, enjoy.

Where are the redemptions? I don't see any redemptions. This can't be real!

Nice patches but the cards look like they were produced by an unlicensed company without a player pic.

Now they are putting their own patches on cards??? (See the Panini patch on the RNH card)

And I think I saw a heart on a hockey card (Staal Collision course card)....phew, thank god I have a trash bucket next to my desk...just puked a little.

Not only that but I like my limited patches to be limited.. I also would like to be able to look at the front of the card and not think... "thats a rangers card bc the only thing I can see is a rangers patch"...
