Panini America‘s NHL debut is coming soon in 2010-11 Certified Hockey and the company already has a surprise in store.
Well, six actually.
Six rookies who have already made their NHL debuts will be in the set — No. 1 overall pick Taylor Hall, Tyler Seguin, Brayden Schenn, Jeff Skinner, Jordan Eberle and Magnus Paajarvi — and will appear on their first Rookie Cards with the product’s arrival next week.
“There was a lot of anxiety among the collecting community when we announced that we were moving the Certified release date,” said Al Muir, Panini America’s Hockey Brand Manager. “But it was a calculated decision we felt was worth the risk. Not only did the benefit of extra time allow us to get additional top-flight autograph content into the product, it afforded us the opportunity to produce the first Rookie Cards of the NHL’s next wave of superstars.”
Certified will include four autograph or memorabilia cards per 10-pack box (including at least one autograph) and also pack autographs of legends such as Bobby Hull, Darryl Sittler, Bernie Parent, Mario Lemieux, Ray Bourque and Jim Craig.
