The NHL All-Star weekend kicks off Thursday, Jan. 26, and Panini will be on location in Ottawa doing what it does best – handing out cards and offering a nice wrapper redemption program that will include rare autograph and memorabilia versions and special All-Star patch cards.
Special three-card wrapper-redemption packs will be available to fans and collectors who open select 2011-12 Panini America hockey products at the company’s 2012 NHL All-Star Fan Fair booth, while supplies last:
- Collectors who open four hobby packs of 2011-12 Pinnacle Hockey will receive one wrapper-redemption pack.
- Collectors who open two hobby packs of 2011-12 Certified Hockey will receive one wrapper-redemption pack.
- Collectors who open one box of 2011-12 Score Hockey will receive two wrapper-redemption packs.
- Collectors who open one hobby pack of 2011-12 Limited Hockey will receive four wrapper-redemption packs.
In addition to producing autographed versions of the base 2012 NHL All-Star Game set, Panini has also added superstar signatures to many of the favorite inserts from recent Panini America hockey products and stamped them with a special “All-Star 2011-2012″ foil logo, creating a whole new wave of limited, show-specific mementos.
Also look for special 2011 NHL Draft memorabilia cards featuring oversized swatches of jerseys worn by No. 1 overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, No. 2 overall pick Gabriel Landeskog and No. 4 overall pick Adam Larsson, respectively, the night they were drafted.
Also, Panini and Kitchener, Ontario-based Cloutsnchara.com, one of the preeminent group-break destinations on the web, will join forces for a special group break featuring two cases of the new 2011-12 Limited Hockey product live on location at the NHL All-star weekend on Friday night.
