By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Hockey Editor
Panini America is crossing over another brand to hockey.
2013-14 Playbook Hockey will make its debut in late March. The set has been featured in football and is known for its booklets cards.
The hockey version will have two hits in every three-card pack, including a booklet card in every pack.
The different booklet subsets feature names such as Rookie Booklets, Double Rookie Class Booklets, Signature Booklets and Split Decision Booklets.
The Rookie Booklets will feature autographs and jerseys numbered to 199 with Prime versions numbered to 25 and Patches numbered to five.
The Double Rookie Class Booklet will pair up top players from the extensive rookie checklist.
Along with the booklet cards, Panini will include autographs and jersey cards. One of the highlights from the autographs includes First Drafts Signatures with images of the top NHL players on the day of their draft.
The base set will include 100 players with Gold (numbered to 50), Holo Silver (numbered to 25) and Purple (1-of-1) parallels.
