First look: 2012-13 Certified Hockey


By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Hockey Editor

Hockey collectors, rejoice!

Certified is on the schedule. Yep, there is at least one more new product for this current locked-out season.

Panini America is adding new elements to 2012-13 Certified, but bringing back plenty what works. Collectors can expect four hits with at least one autograph in every box.

Certified will feature a 100-card base set. There are five cards in each pack with 10 packs in each box.

Mirror parallels return along with Red, Blue, Gold, Emerald parallels. Mirror cards fall at a rate of one per box with three other inserts or parallels.

The popular Freshman Fabric autographs make an appearance. They are part of the 60 Rookie Cards in Certified, which are broken down to 15 Certified Rookies, 25 Freshman Signature Rookies and 20 Freshman Fabric Signature Rookies.

Goalie Pulls are a new insert to Certified. Collectors can pull the goalie from in front of the net or leave him to defend the goal. Face Off Dual Sticks is a new game-used card subset.

Hot boxes fall at a rate of one per mini-case (three eight-box mini cases per master case).

The third Certified release from Panini is scheduled for November.

    I think the Panini product designer and manager from hockey should come to the basketball division; because these are decent cards. With sole rights to basketball, Panini has been screwing the basketball market with low-end garbage.
