Okay, I know I’ve been hyping up 2010-11 Panini Dominion like crazy, but seriously, where does the actual awesomeness of this product end? I’ve showed you countless cards, autographs, patches, just about everything possible…until now.
Ladies and gentlemen, the greatest redemption ever made.
This Stanley Cup is 13 inches tall and was given to a member of the 1978-79 Montreal Canadians (or the Les Canadiens de Montréal for my French readers) and is inserted as a redemption card in this product.
Panini purchased this for $4,000 at auction and it will be yours if you pull the redemption card inside 2010-11 Panini Dominion hockey for it.
That makes this quite possibly the greatest redemption card of all-time.
Don’t believe me? Just read Panini’s Offical Blog all about it.
With both the Stanley Cup and NBA Finals completing in the same week, that leaves us with only baseball for the time being. A lockout looming for the NBA and a continuing lockout for the NFL makes baseball the only major sport we have left to watch. Unless you are one of those few American soccer fans, in that case two sports.
First I am going to show what you collectors can get for your team winning the ultimate prize.
Panini America will have for sale the official 2011 NBA Champions Dallas Mavericks commemorative box set available soon.
This set will feature 36 cards and will have one card for every player on the NBA champs roster. It will also have a highlight card of all 16 Dallas victories this postseason, a card of Coach Carlisle, and a special Dirk Nowitski MVP card. Maybe a Dirk “OneRingSki” we should call it now.
Upper Deck will also be releasing a 2011 Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins commemorative set in a few weeks as well.
This box set will feature cards for 25 players that helped make it happen this year and bring the Cup back to Beantown. There will be a jumbo card, a shot of the whole team with the Cup, and 5 season highlight cards of highlights that propelled them to the playoffs and eventually the Cup!

on the Upper Deck Store site. Sorry, I can’t post a link directly to the product as WordPress.com doesn’t like that on their hosted blogs. Apparently, if I didn’t make the product myself I can’t post a link to buy it. A reason why I’m looking to move to either my own host or a different host. But if I review the product I am allowed to link to it. Weird. So since I am unemployed currently, I can not be paying for hosting (it would be from my box breaking fund) but may consider moving to Blogger. I know you posted that on your blog just for me Upper Deck.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to say that I am appalled by the acts of the people in Vancouver. I have always had a favorable view of the people of Vancouver but that view has gone down slightly. I understand that these actions do not speak for all the people of Vancouver and their surrounding suburbs. However, the actions put on by the rioters after their team lost a SPORTS EVENT is despicable. It is a sports event people. There are much more important things in the world going on than the Canucks losing in the Stanley Cup finals. To the people who kept it civil, I’m sorry your beautiful city turned into a war zone for a night. I hope you all stayed safe away from the rioting.
