Panini Redemption Redeemed: 2012-13 Limited Monikers Evgeni Malkin Auto

After a couple of months waiting for my redemption, I finally opened up my mailbox to find my freshly redeemed Evgeni Malkin autographed Monikers card, numbered 26/99.

This particular card comes from 2012-13 Panini Limited and features an "on-fabric" signature, right next to an embroidered team logo. Since the 2010-11 release, Panini has been producing a similar card for the rookies in Limited called "Phenoms," but this is the first year they included veterans with this type of card. I've always liked them, simply because it was something different, and they look fantastic.

I know that redemptions are one of the most hated aspects of the hobby today, but if the inclusion of a redemption means I have this card in my hands, versus it never existing at all, I'll go ahead and take the redemption.

  1. Very nice return! I am not sure if it is just me, but it looks like Geno's auto has changed a fair bit since his rookie season.
