2010-11 Panini Certified Hockey - Brought to you by Panini


Panini was nice enough to send me a box of 2010-11 Certified Hockey.  I am much more into Hockey than many people realize.  I used to buy 90-91 Score, Proset, UD 1990-94, Stadium Club, Topps.  I've also done a group break on my blog.  First thing I noticed about the box is that the packs were secure.  In the past I have had a bunch of damaged cards come out of Donruss boxes.  I didn't notice any in this box, but beware of peeling foil.  These cards felt like they were quality and Panini may be working on that issue.

Basically you get either a hit, parallel or insert per pack.  Honestly I could do without the inserts, and without them the parallel sets might be easier to put together.

Base Cards: These are typical Panini Fare again, but the hockey photos fit this style much better than football in my opinion.  It may be the color combinations and how colorful the Hockey Uniforms are.  I didn't get any double so collation was good.


Draft Pick /500


The Bryzgalov is /100, Miller is /500, Price is /250. Lindros is /250

The Elliott is 4/5.  The Patch is actually 3 color with a little bit of white and is a single piece

Hamill /99

Neal /250

This is where things get good.  The Wellman is /250 but is on card.    Panini did a great job with this card as they have a nice large signing area so the auto shows up nicely and the card feels of high quality.  This is a big step forward for Panini from where they were a few month ago.

This is a Pavel Datsyuk Mirror Gold Auto /25.  Delivery Time 4 months
So there you have it.  I have no idea whether this is a representative sample of what you should expect from a box of these.  The only negative from my perspective is the single color jerseys are added for the sake of making a hit count, but with on card autos and patches, I really can't complain.  Boxes are $89 at DA, $81.90 at Blowout, $79.95 at Big T, $92 at Atlanta, and $82 at OCS.  If you are a retailer and want your price and link in my reviews let me know

4 out of 5 Joes recommend this product

Contest ends today at 6pm PST

Don't forget the Baseball and Football Topps Chrome Group Break. Four slots left.

2010 Panini Crown Royale Football - Finally

I'll spare everyone the sticker argument. Everyone knows how I feel about that. Two things I want to talk about. First here are the cards:


I dig the Bills patch cards, the blue, black and Silver look good.  The two things I want to talk about are: First, innovation.  These cards are unlike most anything we have seen and so Panini must be applauded for design on these cards.  They look good.  Also we don't have to suffer with tiny pictures of players: 


These are mock ups so the pics are a bit fuzzy.  That's why the quality doesn't seem there.  There is only one series of cards that arguably looks like these, but in concept only. Actually now that I have looked at the examples, these might be production cards.  Some cards just don't scan well, that's why I often use pics instead of scans


The die cut is there, but not even close.

Second, Panini has designed these cards with preventing fakes in mind.  I am sure fakers will figure out a way to put SIK LOGOZ and MAD NASTY MOJO PATCHZ into these, but the cards look like they would sustain substantial damage if they did so.  Only a few other cards have done this:

Well done Panini

Topps Heritage Preview Pics - I like it

1987 Topps was one of my favorite sets when it came out and I knew about the 62 Topps set.  This might be my favorite heritage set yet.  I just never bought the earlier version.  Remember, I am not a Heritage fan.


I like the Chrome mockup

Didn't I make this card?

I really like the Kodachrome style photos.  Just a bit grainy

I wish these cards had a signing area.  I don't like how the auto fails to contrast against the photo.


These autos witht he signing area and the different wood grain look great.

Another good card

Are you kidding me?  Fantastic.  Too bad they don't make like 200 of these.


Nice.
