13-14 Panini Titanium Box Break (Part 1)

 I am here with a story to tell before I get onto the box. A few weeks ago, Panini announced an autograph signing of Adam Henrique:
I decided to attend the signing today in Howell, New Jersey. I met Adam and I had a great time talking to him. He signed a couple of base cards I had sitting around my desk. It was a great event and it was a pleasure to meet him. Not too long after that, the store was holding a raffle. The raffle prize was two hobby boxes of 13-14 Panini Titanium. I decided to enter and I waited until the held the raffle. They were announcing the names and I was waiting for the ticket. They read the numbers and it turns out. I WON!!! I was very happy at the moment and received many Congratulations. I thanked the Panini representative and the store owner. As soon as I got home, I opened the box. I was not expecting anything big, but I was wrong. Here are the results of my break. But first, here are is Henrique card I got signed:

Now I thought that was the hit of the box and I was probably getting a jersey of some sort in the last pack. Nope, I got one of the nicest cards in the product…

Home Sweaters….
15/25…..
Autograph…..

ALEX….
GALENCHENYUK…..

BOOM!
A great hit to end of a single box. I was very happy with this pull.
I will bust the second box next week some time….
Everything is For Sale / For Trade.
Thank You for looking and comments are always appreciated.

2013-14 Score Hockey Hobby Jumbo Stars in Special Panini Unwrapped and SP Reveal

First off, let the Panini double rookie class season begin!!! 13-14 Score has taken the era of Score hockey to the next level. 11-12 Score was my favorite Score product until I saw this year’s product. This year, Score now has foil on the base cards. This is a nice addition to Score and something that was missing from Score in the previous years. Score hockey is mainly known for it’s base/rookies. 12-13 Score and older Score products rarely have hits. This year, Score has the base cards/rookies AND the hits that are usually harder to come by. This makes 13-14 Score hockey a very elite product. Score also has more bang for your buck because of the double rookie class. You get more rookies in one season than you usually have. That also means you will get more rookie cards than the normal amount. The Double Rookie Class behooves Score more than another Panini hockey product that will come out this year. The other thing that is different than other Score products are the packs and quantity. There are the regular packs, rack packs, and jumbo packs. These packs provide variety of selection to choose from. You can choose the regular packs, or you can buy a jumbo pack that contains 52 cards per pack. 52 cards is AMAZING for one pack of hockey cards. The packs are so big, they almost look mini boxes. In addition to that, these packs have autographs and jersey cards in them! (1 out of 10 jumbo packs for a jersey card) That is just incredible that at 52 cards per pack, you can also get an autograph or jersey card. Not only are the jersey cards generic. They have 8 players on them with their jerseys. This product has fantastic features. Score hockey now has the quantity and quality.

* Thank you Panini for this great product and this amazing contest!

And after you’ve taken in the video and the SP list, we’re going to give you a chance to win one of five jumbo boxes of 2013-14 Score. More details on that below.

Panini America 2013-14 Score Hockey Hobby Jumbo Teaser (2)

Yes, we know that the official release date for the highly anticipated 2013-14 Score Hockey Hobby Jumbo product doesn’t arrive until next Wednesday. But you can’t really present us with a box 10 days early and expect us not to open it. After all, Panini America fans and readers of The Knight’s Lance crave nothing more than the earliest possible sneak peeks — and that’s exactly what we intend to give you right now.

The first thing you notice about a 2013-14 Score Hockey Hobby Jumbo box is the girth. It’s a massive pack-busting proposition that tips the scales at more than 2.2 pounds and delivers a whopping 520 total cards.

2 pack break of 12-13 Panini Certified

Recently, I picked up two packs of 12-13 Panini Certified hockey. Certified is a high end product from Panini. In a 10 pack box there is an average of 4 hits per box. The odds are, every 5 pack you buy, there should be an average of two hits. I have already opened many packs of this year’s Certified. Finding hits of both Colby Robak and Jimmy Hayes. This time around, I was hoping to have luck and maybe add other hit to my collection. Here are the results of my two packs of 12-13 Certified

 

Pack 1:

Patrik Elias, Jaromir Jagr, Marian Gaborik, Brad Marchand, and Martin St.Louis

Pack 2:

Steven Stamkos, Nazem Kadri, Robert Mayer Freshman Signatures 165/999, James Reimer, Dustin Byfuglien

 

In my two packs lf Certified, I was able to find another hit. Robert Mayer is currently part of the Montreal Canadiens organization. Though, with the new addidtion of Zachary Fucale, Mayer might not see as much NHL action as he would like to see. All in all, I was very happy with these two packs of 12-13 Panini Certified.
