NHLThe upcoming release of 2013-14 Titanium hockey cards will be a Canada only released, confirmed Panini America officials this week. This series will be sold exclusively through Panini Roundtable dealers with the help of Universal Distribution. The product is scheduled to go live on Jan. 15, 2014.

“Titanium has a strong heritage as a hockey-only brand that has long been embraced by Canadian collectors,” said, D.J. Kazmierczak, Panini America’s Vice President of Sales. “As we looked at our 2013-14 NHL product schedule, we wanted to find a meaningful way to reward Canadian Panini Roundtable stores for their commitment and support of Panini NHL trading card products. We felt this was a clear way to do something special and create a unique point-of-differentiation for Canadian hobby shops and collectors.”

Of course, collectors not living in Canada will be able to purchase the new Titanium hockey cards, too, just not from their local collector stores.

“With an exclusive Canadian distributor, a Canada-only NHL product made a lot of sense and iCollectPanini.com gives us the flexibility to ensure that U.S. hockey fans still have access to purchase the 2013-14 Titanium product.”

Panini Titanium will be packaged four cards to a pack and five packs to a box. Every pack will include either an autograph or memorabilia card. Other highlights include hobby-exclusive veteran parallel cards (numbered to the player’s jersey number), die-cut Milestone Goal Scorer jersey cards, Metallic Marks Autographs (tiered in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum), and multi-rookie autograph cards.

This will mark the sixth edition of Titanium hockey cards, dating back to the original Private Stock Titanium release in the early 2000s (2000-01, 2002-03 and 2003-04). It is the third edition published by Panini America (2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14).
