Review Part-Deux: Second Shot at 2011-12 Panini Contenders Hockey

Now, I am a man who likes a good deal. I’m a man who likes a quality looking set with some nice hits to go along with it. I love ink on my cards. When I saw on my cards, I don’t mean stickers. I mean on my cards. Which is why when I saw that 2011-12 Panini Contenders hockey was at $54 at DA Card World I had to jump all over it.

You may remember my last review of the product. I pulled some big hits, including a dual autograph of Gabriel Landeskog and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. While that is still in redemption mode, I’m willing to wait for a card as beautiful as that will be. It reminded me of how solid of a product that was and the kind of big hits you can find in that product. You know what I really wanted though, was to pull one of those sweet patch autographs or another Nuge auto.

Well here are the hits from round two. Nothing too special or different about the inserts, but they are still nice and clean looking.


Whenever I buy from DA Card World I always seem to pull one of my PC teams. This time is no different with the Hartikainen auto. But the highlight was definitely that Cup Contenders patch autograph of Ryan Kesler from the Vancouver Canucks. A beautiful black card, a beautiful silver signature, and an even more beautiful 3 color patch.

Oh, and every card is signed on-card!

How can you beat that product for $54?
