Default NHLPA announcement tomorrow. UD exclusive again

Well word is announcement is coming down tomorrow that Panini is not going to be renewed for hockey and it will be an upper deck exclusive again.

Personally I'm not heartbroken to see the endless parallels go, along with products that drop 40%-65% in price six months to a year after release.

This sucks if true, really wish ITG would have gotten a shot, I'm not sad about panini as long as upper deck comes through

ASK NOT WHAT HOCKEY CAN DO FOR YOU, ASK WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR HOCKEY ---RKW




Fellow fighters of the rebellion Griswold army,

It is with great honor that I stand before you today. You fought with pride. You fought with honor. You fought like true hockey fans.

I have never been prouder of our hockey community. Long have we been the low rung on the collecting ladder. But today we hold our heads high on these boards as the first sport to expel Panini from their midst and restore order to the collecting universe.

Sadly, this has come with casualties as it appears no other license has been granted. But there are more battles to be fought and more battles to be won. For now we relish the taste of victory.


WE ARE LEGION, FOR WE ARE HOCKEY

Well this kind of explains why they have been releasing every product under the sun, they must have seen the writing on the wall and were trying to make a money grab.

Exclusives are bad. Period.

Upper Deck's products are pretty good, but they need competition. Would love to see Topps or ITG get a license.

i'd definitely be happy to see Panini bumped out of the hockey market.

i do wonder how they'll spin this to screw over anyone with outstanding redemptions.

On Behalf of all men and women in the hobby, I would like to say good bye to overpriced junk, redemptions, and cards # to /10000000. And I would also like to welcome back UD ICE <3 oh how I have missed you.

The autograph silhouettes from Crown Royale are some of my favorite cards in the hobby.
Unfortunately thats really it with regards to Panini hockey products for me.

That said, exclusives are bad. Competition is good!!!

Wonder if they'll still do NT for this year???

Lot of panini junk but a few sets are alright. Now we'll have way too many UD junk sets.

Booooo.......Panini Prime and Dominion will be missed. UD is a train wreck of a company. Exclusives suck, it'll only be a matter if time before the UD complaints will start, card collectors are impossible to please.

I probably open 50+ cases of hockey a year (maybe more, I've done 8 cases in the last two weeks). Probably 35-40 of those are Panini products. I don't think that I will increase my UD opening at all, so that will just be 35-40 cases of hockey less that I buy and will probably replace it with football. As a dealer who gave up his direct contracts, I can't get UD products with the same ease that I get Panini. It's too bad. Competition is good for the marketplace and UD is a shadow of it's former self.

Looking for Andre Dawson Serial numbered cards that are his jersey number - either #8 or #10. So looking for cards like 8/8 or 08/99 or 10/250.

I don't own any Panini hockey other than Prizm color parallel's. I do like some of the Dominion Mammoth patches but for the most part I avoided Panini. Too many of their products look the same

Not going to lie, I fully prefer UD hockey products over all others. That coupled with the fact that I am an ITG supporter as well, totally fine with this announcement.

the only thing i liked about Panini is how regularly they worked Ryan Callahan into products, I just don't see him in anything from Upper Deck anymore....

but hopefully this means Cally might be more willing to work a deal with someone like ITG if he doesn't care for UD or they don't pay


Dr Price, can you get on that for a supercollector, MORE RYAN CALLAHAN

The Panini Prime has produced some of the best patches ever produced its sad but what happens now...their baseball sucks, no hockey, they are going to be producing more Basketball then they are now and they will try to offset the loses by over producing football.

I do like Panini products and the 2011-12 Contenders Auto Patches with black background signed with silver pen are some of my favorites. Haven't touched any UD products since I came back to hockey due to price and bang for the buck. All of the companies have too many sticker autos, too many parallels, and too many redemptions.

Say what you will about Panini but their redemption process is the best of the lot, especially since they honor expired redemptions. You can ask for a replacement and actually see what they replace it with. I would be sad to see them lose their license.

Would rather just not buy product I don't like than only have one option. Competition drives lower prices and higher quality products for consumers.

Official. NHL, NHLPA ink exclusive UD deal.


Quote:
This creates an exclusive in three of the four major sports. Topps has exclusive with MLB, Panini with the NBA and now Upper Deck with the NHL. The licensor tend to go with one company because it’s easier to manage one license rather than multiple ones.
