After bursting onto the hockey scene with Certified and following it up with the retro feeling Score brand, Panini is now gearing up to release its first high-end hockey release. Scheduled for launch on the 15th December 2010 Panini Limited looks like a highly promising product. Last seen under the Donruss banner during the 1997-1998 season, Limited is set to raise more than a few eyebrows with its return. Each pack will include 7 cards and will cost a cool $100. Inside the pack you will find: one autograph numbered to 299 or less, one memorabilia card numbered to 199 or less, an additional autograph or memorabilia card numbered to 299 or less, two base cards, one Legend card and one additional card all of which will be numbered to 299 or less. This release will also mark the first appearance of cinema’s popular Hanson brothers’ autographs as well as offering 1/1 cut signature cards. Of course, the biggest NHL stars will also be included in the release, look out for the Crosby, Ovechkin, Stamkos and Hall cards!
