Dallas Stars RW Reilly Smith Shoots, Scores in 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey Break

June 3, 2013

RookieAnthology_ReillySmith_blog_thumb

Last week inside the cozy confines of Panini America HQ, Dallas Stars young star Reilly Smith made himself at home by signing a few autographs, taking a few shots on a most atypical goalie and starring in a special episode of Panini Unwrapped featuring 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey.

Panini America’s highly anticipated new NHL product goes live on Wednesday, but Smith and friends give you an idea of what to expect from the loaded release in the must-see video that follows. After you’ve watched the video, be sure to stick around for the complete product checklist and to find out how you can win one of five boxes of 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey.

Here’s a link to the 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey checklist: 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Checklist

Now, onto the contest. We’re going to give away five boxes of 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey and we’re going to do award them as prizes to a special two-part contest. Be sure to leave both answers as one comment to this post.

1) First, we want you to tell us Reilly Smith’s answer to the question: “When was the last time you opened a box of hockey cards?”

2) We’ve hidden the featured image at the top of this post (the one with Smith and Panini America’s Tracy Hackler side-by-side) three times in the galleries linked below. Your mission, for the second part of this contest, is to find those three hidden images and tell us on what pictures you found them. To make it a little easier for you, know that there’s one hidden image in each of the galleries.

Got all that? Just remember to leave your answer to both questions as a comment to this post.

We’ll wait to approve all comments until after the entry deadline, which is tomorrow, June 4, at 12 p.m. CST, so your comment will appear to you as “pending moderation.” That’s our way of protecting your answers so that everyone else can’t see them. To that end, we kindly ask that you keep your answers to yourself until after the deadline. We want to reward those folks who’ve taken the time to participate.

We’ll then place all correct entries into an online randomizer to select five winners, who each will receive one box of 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey.

Good luck and thanks in advance for participating.

    Those cards look SICK. I am super eager to start opening some packs and check out some of that Prism technology that Tracy is so taken by, lol. Seriously though, Kudos to Panini for making inserts “hits” again with great design. I really like having a “hit” in every pack, a card doesn’t have to be a mem or auto card to be sexy, as proven by Panini.

    As for the contest:

    Reilly Smith said the last time he opened a box of cards was probably 4 or 5 months ago.

    The hidden image is featured in the following photos:

      Ahhh rats I forgot to put the answer to the 1st question..I swear I did watch it before I found the hidden images and before it was posted. . So for whatever it’s worth he did say 4-5 months ago at the Rookie showcase. I can’t believe I did that after I spent all that time finding the images. I hate me.

    As a local (DFW) sports fan and especially Stars fan, its nice to see y’all give some love to the Stars and have Reilly Smith come in to interact with you and do the video. I know the Stars will always be team #4 around here (unless the year is 1999), but its good to get a little publicity and notice when the local media ignores them, so thanks a lot!

    Here are my answers to the contest:

    Part 1 –

    Question #1: Reilly said it was 4 to 5 months ago at the Rookie Premiere

    Part 2-

    Picture #1: Panini America 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey Weekend QC #5
    – Pekka Rinne – Towering Defenders

    Picture #2: Panini America 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey QC #11
