2013-14 Panini National Treasures Hockey CardsBrand: National Treasures
2013-14 Panini National Treasures Hockey closes out the card maker's NHL license in ultra high-end fashion. Marking the first time the brand has been used in hockey, it brings with it a high price tag but some of the most premium cards of the hockey card season. Every box has eight cards, five of which are hits. A Printing Plate is the sixth, leaving just two base or parallel cards.
One of the hallmarks of National Treasures is the Rookie Autographed Patch card. It's no different in 2013-14 Panini National Treasures Hockey. Each box delivers one such card numbered to 99 or less with a bigger swatch than a lot of other products. Parallels use tags, snap, fight straps and the NHL Shield.
The one-per-box booklet cards have anywhere from two to four panels and different combinations of memorabilia and autographs. Dual Stick Booklet cards have autographs from a pair of players done on pieces of sticks. Treasured Twigs have large pieces of game-used sticks from current and retired players. Some of these add an autograph and a stick nameplate to the mix. Jumbo Quad Booklets have patches and NHL Shields from a quartet of players.
Treasure Chest Memorabilia cards have pieces from 24 different players on the same card.
2013-14 Panini National Treasures Hockey has some other distinct cards as well. Buried Treasure Autographs are signed on-card and are highlighted by a large replica Stanley Cup. Flawless cards hit the ice for the first and, potentially, only time. Numbered to 5, these cards have a diamond embedded in them like the base cards in 2012-13 Panini Flawless Basketball. These also have one-of-one Platinum parallels.
