Product Rewind: 2013-14 Panini Playbook Hockey – After the brand’s successful release in football, the creative team for hockey, led at the time by former Upper Deck Product Development Manager, Karvin Cheung, decided to segue the concept to hockey.
The result was an innovative, high-end release loaded with great content. Current selling prices for the product are an amazing deal for collectors and the secondary market value for the product’s singles make it a great investment opportunity as well.
The brand is built around the idea of bringing premium booklet cards to collectors with one (1) included in every box. Instead of being a rare, hard to find hit, Playbook capitalizes on the success of Preferred Basketball with its one (1) per box booklet card pack-out configuration.
2013-14 Playbook Hockey also benefits as having been released in the post, work-stoppage year of the much heralded, Dual Rookie Class.
In addition to the unique content developed and created for Playbook Hockey, the set also incorporates elements from other successful Panini hockey brands including Crown Royale, Limited and Dominion, to name a few.
