Default Panini America Offers Detailed First Look at 2013-14 Contenders Hockey (Gallery)

Panini America Offers Detailed First Look at 2013-14 Contenders Hockey (Gallery)
Mar 1st 2014, 20:26, by Tracy Hackler

If the late-March release of 2013-14 Contenders Hockey does indeed represent the final Contenders Hockey release ever made, the product is going out with a definitive bang. Returning to the proud Rookie Ticket roots that long ago made the Contenders brand a trading card icon, 2013-14 Contenders Hockey will deliver a checklist that includes up 125 Rookie Ticket signers honoring the #PaniniDoubleRookieClass, complete with scarce photo variations.
And in a bit of nostalgia-nodding genius, 2013-14 Contenders Hockey will honor the 15th anniversary of the landmark 1998 Contenders Football release with Rookie Ticket Recall, a star-filled autograph insert that places some of the NHL’s biggest superstars — including Alex Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, John Tavares, Eric Lindros and more) on the now-famous 1998 Contenders Football design.

Each hobby box of 2013-14 Contenders Hockey (18 packs per box, five cards per pack) will deliver at least four autographs. The highlights of the product are considerable and include . . .
  • The return of Rookie Ticket Signature Patches numbered to 100 or less and autographed in silver or gold paint pen.
  • The return of Trophy Contenders autographed patch cards honoring top candidates for the Hart, Vezina, Norris and more NHL Trophies; numbered to 100 or less.
  • Booklets are also back, this year featuring cards packed with up to eight autographs on the 4 vs. 4 Booklets insert.
  • 2013-14 Contenders Hockey also features unique autograph exclusives: Global Contenders Autographs will be a Canadian exclusive; in addition, the Winter Classic Contenders Autographs will feature Detroit Red Wings players as U.S. exclusives while the Toronto Maple Leafs in the set will be exclusive to Canada.
We’ll have plenty more coverage of 2013-14 Contenders Hockey here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming weeks. But for now, enjoy this first extended sneak peek:

The 125 rookie autos scare me. If they short print some of the scrubs like they do in football then it might be okay.

I think that with it being their last product they'll make it as buyer friendly as possible. Albeit expensive

History says this will fail miserably. Buyers do not care about contenders single. 11/12 boxes are under $40!!!

I for one am not too disappointed that I can get some great on-card autos, multi-auto'd cards, and booklet autos for under $40 a box. This new stuff looks nice and I'm hoping I can get these under $40 in a couple of years as well.

I'll keep staying away from SPX with sticker autos and $80+ per box. SPA is always nice but bang for the buck isn't usually there.
