2012-2013 Hockey Cards
Just like 2011-12 basketball, the 2012-13 season fell victim to a lockout. Several months of play were lost and a partial season was played. The result fo collectors was a limited product offering and even more limited rookie options. Again like basketball, a double rookie class is planned for the following season. Collectors can look forward to a deep rookie checklist in 2013-14 hockey cards.
