Panini America Provides a Peek at 2012-13 Classics Signatures Hockey (Gallery)
While most of the hockey collecting universe continues to gush over the 2011-12 Prime Hockey while anticipating the upcoming 2011-12 Dominion Hockey, Panini America product development folks must keep their collective gaze fixed on what’s ahead, including the brand-new 2012-13 Classics Signatures Hockey coming later this year.
