Panini America will feature a group of retired hockey legends in its 2014 Panini Boxing Day promotional picture card set. The second annual series will feature stars from four different sports – ice hockey, baseball, basketball, and American football.
“Panini America’s 2014 Boxing Day promotion begins in earnest early next week exclusively inside authorized Canadian Panini Roundtable stores,” wrote Tracy Hackler on The Knight’s Lance. “Collectors who make qualifying purchases at participating Panini Roundtable stores will receive special 2014 Boxing Day packs while supplies last.”
There are 15 different hockey players in the base set, all featured out of uniform. The 15 former players are Patrick Roy, Gordie Howe, Doug Gilmour, Brett Hull, Curtis Joseph, Félix Potvin, Don Cherry, Mark Messier, Mike Modano, Raymond Bourque, Joe Sakic, Mario Lemieux, Pavel Bure, Brendan Shanahan, and Bobby Clarke.
“Packs should start arriving in stores early next week. Until then, though, stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for a series of must-see galleries previewing the loaded contents of the 2014 Boxing Day set — beginning with today’s preview of the set’s Hockey Legends, Legends and Team Colors subsets.”
