Default Panini Unwrapped Goes Behind the Scenes with Boston Bruins Superstar Tim Thomas

Panini Unwrapped Goes Behind the Scenes with Boston Bruins Superstar Tim Thomas

January 3, 2012 at 1:46 PM

For Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, 2011 wasn’t just one of the greatest years of his career. It was one of the greatest years of his life. The mightily mustachioed Thomas might speak softly, but he carries a big stick (and a big mitt) that make him one of the greatest goalies of his generation.

The checklist of his accomplishments last season alone is about as long as the one for 2011-12 Score Hockey and includes, among other feats, the Stanley Cup, the Vezina Trophy, the Conn Smythe, the Roger Crozier Saving Grace Award, two ESPYs and a victory in the All-Star Game. Of course, all of us here at Panini America would like to think the crowning achievement of Thomas’ historic campaign was being featured on the box and wrappers for 2011-12 Certified Hockey.

Late last week, just one day before the official end of his epic 2011, Thomas and the Bruins were in Dallas to battle the Dallas Stars on New Year’s Eve. Alex Carbajal and I took advantage of such proximity to Thomas’ greatness by venturing to the Bruins’ team hotel for a special visit that included an episode of Panini Unwrapped and great behind-the-scenes footage of Thomas signing some upcoming gems slated for 2011-12 Crown Royale and 2011-12 Limited.

Enjoy the video and the gallery.

Great stuff. Love that Panini has that blog and shoots video of some of the signings they do. Thomas seems like a great guy. Cool seeing him bust packs and talk about the players.
