Panini Peek: 2011-12 Dominion Hockey
Given last season’s highly decorated debut of Dominion Hockey as the newest super-premium superstar on the sports collectibles landscape, it would be no stretch at all to call 2011-12 Dominion Hockey easily one of the most anticipated releases of the season.
And that’s before you even consider the sheer amount of improvements the Panini America Product Development team made to the product for its sophomore showing. Without question, Dominion will conclude Panini America’s 2011-12 NHL product season with a massive, thunderous bang.
The laundry list of advancements includes . . .
- One Autographed Rookie Patch RC numbered to 199 or less in every eight-card box, along with at least two additional autographs and three memorabilia cards
- More unique designs and fewer parallels, making for a much more expansive player checklist
- Panini America’s first use of game-worn Gordie Howe and 2011-12 Winnipeg Jets memorabilia
- The introduction of autographed single- and dual-player Peerless Patches
- The etched real-silver Engravatures insert returns this season with a second set devoted to the 2010-11 Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins
- The introduction of two-player fight-strap button Strapping Lads cards
To be sure, there will be more tweaks announced as the product launch draws nearer, so stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for those. But until then, simply bask in this exclusive first look at 2011-12 Dominion Hockey:
