My first box break of the 2013 season is Panini Score 2012/2013 Hockey. These have always been a very common set to collect because of it’s price point, and I don’t think I will ever stop. It is a hockey card set for the true lover of the game, and I hope they remember that in future issues. Overall, you are going to get some great value and fun with a box of this set, and in my review of the 2012/13 Panini Score Hockey series you will find out exactly why.
Price and Box Breakdown
Average Price per box: $36
36 Packs per box, 7 cards per pack.
Every box delivers:
One: Gold Rush Parallel / pack
One: Gold Rush Hot Rookie / box
Three: The Franchise Retro Retail Exclusive inserts / box
A miminum of 12 various inserts / box
Four Autographs / case
Look for Hot Rookies, featuring the first cards of the 2012-13 rookie class. (1 in every other pack).
The Franchise Retro set is a retail exclusive insert set, featuring players from the Original Six NHL franchises. Look for rare autographed versions!
The all new Score Signatures features autographs from your favorite NHL players.
The base set for 2012-13 Score Hockey looks pretty good and the card quality is right in line from what we see year to year from them.
Subsets and Inserts
This is a great set for collectors of all ages. It’s low price point of $1 per pack makes it affordable for people on the low end of the spectrum and that is a very good thing. There should be more sets at this price point to get more and more people back into collecting cards again. A kid is going to save his $100 for video games instead of a box of cards, but at $1 a pack the impulse buy is present. Bravo, Score.
