Sultry Silhouettes: Panini America’s Pre-Ink Peek at 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey
Panini America NHL Brand Manager Chris Barr was nice enough to drop by on Monday and let me know that the unsigned-but-still-spectacular Silhouettes and Rookie Silhouettes slated to headline 2012-13 Rookie Anthology Hockey had just arrived from the production facility. Barr also cautioned me that the cards wouldn’t be here for long. Once they were counted, cataloged and QC’d, they were headed immediately back out to the players on them to be signed.
Barr wasn’t lying. By the time I was able to get back to the Acquisitions area to check them out for myself yesterday, many of them had already been checked, re-checked, boxed back up and shipped. Luckily, there were still some prime (in more ways than one) viewing options available, including Gordie Howe, Joe Sakic, Steve Yzerman and Jeremy Roenick to name four.

Best Silhouettes yet, one of the best designed sets currently in the Hockey market imo. I know I'll never get one but I'd kill for that Howe!!!
