Panini America Prepares for the 2011 NHL All-Star Game: The Gradual Reveal

January 24, 2011

Beginning Friday at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, N.C., Panini America will aim to dazzle a decided hockey contingent with a multi-faceted, fan-friendly approach to the 2011 NHL All-Star Fan Fair.

The show, held in conjunction with Sunday’s NHL All-Star Game, will be the company’s first as a member of the NHL family. Rest assured, we’re putting our best foot forward.

Over the next few days, we’ll be releasing the details of our show plans on The Knight’s Lance. Today, we shed some light on what has become a calling card of any Panini America show appearance: A show-stopping wrapper-redemption program.

The show-exclusive 2011 NHL All-Star Game set will feature seven cards highlighting the 20th anniversary of the landmark 1990-91 Score Hockey release. The set, previewed in all of its glory below, will be limited to 500 copies and will be augmented by special insert cards, including one honoring the Carolina Hurricanes‘ Stanley Cup win.

The two-card redemption packs will also include randomly inserted Rookie NHL patch autographs as well as additional signatures from such current superstars as Sidney Crosby, Carey Price, Steve Stamkos, Taylor Hall and the Canes’ own Cam Ward, Eric Staal and Jeff Skinner; oh, there are also autographs of all-time legends like Patrick Roy and Steve Yzerman. Seriously.

Show-goers will receive one two-card NHL All-Star redemption pack for every three 2010-11 Panini America NHL hobby packs opened at the Panini America booth.

Stay tuned tomorrow for a comprehensive gallery of the redemption set’s stunning autograph and memorabilia cards. For now, enjoy this first look at some of the sweet base cards and inserts from the set.

    Will there be dealers there, or should we buy our Hobby packs in advance? Thinking of coming from Pittsburgh for this event, but wanted to know in advance if I had to stop by my local shop and pick up a box or two so I’d have packs to break @ your booth.

      At last count, there were at least eight hobby dealers who were slated to be there.
