Fantastic base-set photography? Check. Cool, compelling inserts like Future Team Score and Check-It? Check. Set-staple subsets like First Goals and Net Cam? Check. Retail-exclusive parallels and autographs from the biggest names in the game? Check. The history-making debut of Panini America’s NHL Double Rookie Class? Check. The most ideal way imaginable to begin the 2013-14 NHL collecting season? Check.
Without question, 2013-14 Score Hockey has a lot going for it. And as we head into the Fourth of July holiday, we thought we’d start the fireworks a little early with an explosive first look at the retail version of the product, which the Panini America NHL Product Development team quality controlled late last week.
The team is working on the hobby Jumbo QC now as both versions of the product steadily skate toward their highly anticipated July 24 release date. We’ll have much more on 2013-14 Score Hockey right here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming days. But for now, enjoy this broad exploration of the retail product with its vaunted Hot Rookies (and their sparkling new “Dual RC Class” logos), its sterling autograph content and its enchanting display of the NHL’s essence.
