Group Break Part 1: 2011-12 Panini Rookie Anthology

Well, the cards are finally here! Let's get things started.

First up is 2011-12 Rookie Anthology. It's a 10-pack box with 5 cards per pack. Each pack will contain either a hit or an extended rookie card from Pinnacle, Crown Royale, or Contenders. Four of the hits will be in the packs themselves, and the fifth one will be in the form of a one-card bonus pack.

Without further ado, here's the video:

Here are the scans of some of the major cards

The Hits:

Gustav Nyquist Certified Auto/Jersey 64/299 (DET)
Erik Gudbranson Rookie Treasures Auto/Dual Jersey /499 (FLA)

Carl Hagelin & Adam Henrique Rookie Rivalry (Randomed to NYR)
Louis Leblanc & Ben Scrivens Rookie Rivalry (Randomed to MTL)

Jason Spezza Luxury Suite Stick/Jersey (OTT)

And here are the rookies:

Erik Gustafsson Pinnacle (PHI)
Dylan Olsen Pinnacle (CHI)
Cody Eakin (WSH)
Anders Nilsson (NYI)
Andy Miele Contenders 960/999 (PHO)
Tomas Kundratek Crown Royale (WSH)

One important note on the two Rookie Rivalry cards that were randomed off. I had planned on doing the randomization directly on video at the very end of this box, but my battery ran out. So, I ended up doing the randomization at the end of the Enforcers box break. I wanted to do it on the same video as one of the boxes, since both cards contained players from teams that I had. This way, you all would know that everything is on the up and up.

There you have it. We're off to a good start so far. The next box, 2011-12 ITG Enforcers will be posted tomorrow, so stay tuned.

  1. The Nyquist is the hit of the box and that was like the 4th or 5th Spezza I have seen from the bonus pack!
