Pack Preview: 2012-13 Panini NHL Rookie Anthology

Details have been released from the upcoming 2012-13 Panini Rookie Anthology!  After making its debut last season, Rookie Anthology is returning and adding the first Prizm Hockey cards to the mix.

Each hobby box will contain four memorabilia or autograph cards, with at least one auto guaranteed.  It will also contain one Rookie Treasure autograph  jersey and one bonus prizm pack.   Fans that were worried about a shortened NHL season knew that this year was going to sting just a little as far as rookie inclusions, but Panini is claiming it will be their ‘Most rookie-filled product to date’.  Some names featured are, Chris Kreider, Jaden Schwartz and Sven Baertschi.

Inserts included will be from Panini’s top brands that were removed from this year. Brands like; Elite, Luxury Suite, Titanium and Crown Royal. This just allows Panini to add some incentive to Rookie Anthology. The Titanium rookies will each be numbered to the player’s jersey number.  This is sure to drive secondary market sales as collectors will know exactly how many of each card exist.

Gold parallels numbered to draft position, Crown Royale rookie and veteran Silhouette Signatures are said to be falling about two per case, which are good odds for case breakers opening this product.
