Preview: 2011-12 Panini Crown Royale Hockey

This is exciting news that Panini Crown Royale hockey is coming back for another season. Before last year, I had never opened a hobby box of hockey product nor had I opened any Panini product before. So obviously, this product has a special place in my collecting heart. So I’m happy to see a return from probably the most successful Panini hockey product from last year.

The Rookie Silhouettes will return as probably one of the hottest rookie autographed cards from last year. This trend will likely continue after all the great feedback I saw around the hockey collecting community and this may again be the hockey rookie card of the season. On card autographs with a patch from the player behind the picture.

But new this year will be a limited set of veterans with the Silhouette design which will surely make several collectors excited. They added this to football this year and I’ve only heard good things about it, but the hockey version will be different with on-card signatures.

Ice Kings will feature legends of the NHL with more on-card autographs limited to just 99 copies and Scratching the Surface will return with the autographs on the faux playing surface with signatures like Alex Ovechkin, Marty Brodeur, Jaromir Jagr, and Steve Yzerman just to name a few.

And surely several of your favorite inserts should return with jersey and patch parallels to fulfill all of your collecting wants.

I’ve said before that I love die-cuts so this product will always be at the top of products I want to open, plus of the special place in my collecting heart.

This product will hit stores in sometime in the coming months and the price range will probably be about $25/pack or $100/box.

Make sure you check out the official Panini Peek of this product for more information and photos!

    Not when it is missing the case hit and you get doubles and triples of the same hit cards. There appears to have been tampering and switching of the boxes by someone in the packagong department before the cases were sealed and shipped to the distributor. Replacing the missing case hit weeks after the product has been out, dropped in price and no one wants it any more doesn’t serve any purpose. If someone pays for something and you gurantee a case hit, I deserve a refund when it isn’t there.
