2012-13 Panini Rookie Anthology Hockey CardsBrand: Rookie Anthology
While it's easy to drool over the double-rookie class of 2013-14 hockey card products, 2012-13 releases have rookie cards too. The crop might not be as deep, but there are still several standouts. 2012-13 Panini Rookie Anthology Hockey goes heavy on the rookie content, combining designs from several brands. It also includes the first Panini Prizm hockey cards.
2012-13 Panini Rookie Anthology Hockey has a standalone 100-card base set. From there, rookie cards and inserts stem from a handful of Panini brands like Contenders, Crown Royale, Elite, Luxury Suite and Titanium. This means that rookies have multiple cards throughout the product.
Every 2012-13 Panini Rookie Anthology hobby box comes with a total of four autographs and memorabilia cards.
Rookies are front and center in a handful of familiar inserts and subsets. Rookie Treasures, numbered to 99 or less, come with an autograph and a pair of memorabilia swatches. Inscriptions Autographs are printed on acetate. Titanium Rookies comes numbered to the player's jersey number. Available for both rookies and veterans, Crown Royale Silhouettes return with a die-cut player image placed over top of a large jersey piece. Numbered to 99 or less, they also come signed.
More high-end memorabilia and ink come from the Crown Royale Lords of the NHL Patches and Luxury Suite Memorabilia Autographs.
Each hobby box also has a three-card Prizm Hockey pack included as a box topper. The Prizm set has 52 veteran cards and 48 rookies. Parallels come in the form of Rainbow, Red (#/50), Blue (#/25) and Gold (#/10).
