Default NHLPA restricts 2012-13 rookie class on cards

NHLPA restricts 2012-13 rookie class on cards
Jan 16th 2013, 23:53


Statement from the NHLPA’s Adam Larry:
“Over the past few months, the NHLPA has been assessing the impact that a lockout shortened season would have on our trading card business, as well as how to specifically the rookie card class of 2012-13. After discussions both internally and externally, including with many stakeholders within the trading card industry, we have decided to restrict the rookie class for the 2012-13 product to those players who debuted between the 2012 All-Star Game and the conclusion of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals. This means that all rookies who debut during the 2012-13 season will have their rookie cards appear in 2013-14 products.
The NHLPA encourages collectors to check Panini’s and Upper Deck’s official blogs for more details on their respective upcoming 2012-13 releases. We look forward to continuing our relationship with both Panini and Upper Deck to bring the best hockey players in the world to life through the dynamic and expanding trading card market.”
Translation: There will be no new Rookie Cards in product in 2012-13. The rookies that are in products now such as Chris Kreider, Sven Baertschi and Jaden Schwartz will be the only rookies in products this season.
However, that makes 2013-14 products loaded just as it was in 2005-06, the season after the last lockout.
Look for more on Beckett.com in the coming days.

Well with this move I won't be buying any hockey this year.This hurts so many people,from the companies,to the hobby stores and the collectors.
You will have to wait till next year.

Just saw on UDs Facebook page some store owner is trying to put together a class action lawsuit against the NHLPA.

Pretty sure they can't be sued,they are exempt from the antitrust laws.It's the same reason you can't sue any of the sports for a monopoly when they give one company the exclusive rights to cards.

Although disappointing, it's better than the alternative. No season, no new releases of ANY kind, no nothing.

Not really true... there have been releases all year through the lockout.

I hope they bring back rookie update like in 2005-06 and do a full release of UD Ice. Those were two awesome products in 05-06 imo.
