Hockey fans lucky enough to make it to Ottawa for the NHL All-Star festivities this week, will be in for a treat. Panini America is offering cards at the event through a wrapper redemption.
Panini has created base cards, autographs, memorabilia and special patch cards made just for the All-Star Game.
The redemptions could be obtained at the 2012 NHL All-Star Fan Fair from Thursday to Sunday and while supplies last.
Each redemption pack will be filled with three cards. To get a pack, fans follow these guidelines:

The hits include autographed versions of the base cards, autographed inserts from recent Panini sets that are stamped with special “All-Star 2011-2012” logos and oversized swatches of jerseys worn by top draft picks the night they were drafted.
