Default Panini America Announces Plans for Rest of 2012-13 NHL Season, Double Rookie Class

Panini America Announces Plans for Rest of 2012-13 NHL Season, Double Rookie Class
Jan 17th 2013, 20:15


Panini America, the world’s largest sports and entertainment collectibles company, announced today an updated roster of NHL/NHLPA trading card products for the remainder of the 2012-13 season, following the NHLPA’s decision to restrict 2012-13 Rookie Cards to those players that debuted between the 2012 All-Star Game and the conclusion of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals.
The decision means that any rookies that debut during the 2012-13 season will have their Rookie Cards appear in 2013-14 NHL/NHLPA Panini America products along with rookies debuting during the 2013-14 season — setting up the category for a highly anticipated double rookie class.

The decision also allows for Panini America to celebrate the NHL’s return to the ice with the release of two more trading card products during the remainder of the shortened season, with one product launching shortly after the start of the NHL season later this week. 2012-13 Limited Hockey will be available at both retail and hobby stores in early February. Limited will be followed by 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey, available at hobby shops in early June. The 2012-13 Panini America NHL/NHLPA product calendar will be rounded out with the highly anticipated return of Prime Hockey, which will be available at hobby shops in August.
“We are excited for the NHL and NHL Players to return to the ice and look forward to delivering NHL/NHLPA trading cards to eager hockey fans around the world,” said Panini America CEO Mark Warsop. “We look forward to working with the league and its players to continue the momentum the hockey trading card category experienced last season. The time away from the game has only strengthened the demand and anticipation for new Panini America NHL/NHLPA trading card products.”

The double rookie class in basketball allowed them to include a bunch of scrub autos and took out star jersey cards as hit. So they can go like 3 autos or 4 autos per box with no jersey but the value is actually worse than a box with star jersey cards in it.

Do these companies actually think the average collector would be stupid enough to read that quote and think it's true???


..Yes, of course they do.

This is hilarious, not just the Panini nonsense but the NHLPA nonsense. Ultimately, people will buy whatever crap comes out so it doesn't matter.

Edit to add: I'm slightly scared thinking about how many products Panini can pump out next year if they are able to fill the boxes/packs with double the scrub rookies.
