Today we did our daily reads and got a sneak peek at what looks to be another amazing product from Panini, but this time its a Hockey release and it looks to be a pre-order must.
2010-11 Dominion Hockey appears to have some fantastic design, drool worthy signatures and comes in one of our favorite configurations, "small box, monster hits."
The suggested retail price is $350, but I have a feeling will only go up once it's released because there has been a buzz about these cards for a while. My gut tells be supply will exceed demand on these. With Dominion you are looking at eight cards which easily sends this into our ultra premium category. Of those eight cards, six will be autographs or memorabilia hits. At least half of those hits will be autos.
The highlights of the inserts include;
Kindest Cuts 1/1 cut signatures honoring the greatest hockey legends of all time
The hockey debut of Pen Pals autographs featuring signatures of two, three or four hockey greats on one card, with Duals numbered to 50, Triples numbered to 25 and Quads numbered to 5
Peerless Patches Dual and Quad booklet cards featuring the choicest pieces of memorabilia from hockey’s greatest stars of yesterday and today
Engravatures cards embedded with pieces of real silver that are engraved with the names of former Stanley Cup winner – just like on the real thing — limited to just 10 copies
The return of Nifty 50, one of the hobby’s most famous insert names, complete with hard autographs of hockey’s fabled single-season 50-goal scorers
Brass Bonanza on-card autographs that pay tribute to the legends of the Hartford Whalers, all numbered to 50 or less
The unique Tape to Tape insert featuring autographs from stars on actual tape sliced from their game-used hockey sticks
I was going to include photos of these amazing cards, but I think for this one you should go over to The Knight's Lance. It's absolutely worth a look.
