Default Panini America Reveals Grand Show Plans for the 2012 Toronto Spring Expo (Gallery)

Panini America Reveals Grand Show Plans for the 2012 Toronto Spring Expo (Gallery)

April 27, 2012 at 1:25 PM

One week from today, thousands of Canada’s most passionate collectors will descend upon the Toronto International Centre to take part in the divine three-day showcase known as the 2012 Toronto Spring Expo. And once again this year, Panini America is pulling out all the stops with a showstopping wrapper-redemption program sure to have the floor buzzing from beginning to end — and long thereafter.

Veteran Toronto Expo enthusiasts likely will find the show-exclusive set created for next week to be the best one yet, for it includes sequentially numbered rookies, unique memorabilia cards featuring towels used during the NHL All-Star Game (with swatches big enough to use following a post-game shower), a whole new roster of one-of-a-kind sketch cards, instant-win redemption cards good for autographed memorabilia and so much more.

The special set, distributed via two-card silver-foil packs, will include:

A 10-card NHL All-Star base set that features short prints of Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby.
A four-card NHL All-Star MVP insert honoring the game’s most legendary superstars, including the great Gordie Howe.
An eight-card Rookie Card subset featuring the top name’s of this year’s class with every card sequentially numbered to 299.
Eight Rookie Patch Autographs.
The Private Signings autograph insert set highlighting members of the 2012 NHL All-Star Game.
The five-card Tools of the Trade memorabilia insert highlight award-winners from 2011 NHL All-Star Weekend on cards embedded with huge swatches of event-used towels,
Additional scarce insert cards randomly inserted and numbered to either five or only one.
And, of course, the triumphant return of original 1/1 NHL Player Sketch Cards and autographed pieces of memorabilia distributed via instant-win redemption cards.
Here’s the breakdown of how Panini America’s must-have wrapper-redemption packs will be distributed:

Collectors opening three packs of 2011-12 Elite Hockey at the Panini America booth will receive one wrapper-redemption pack
Collectors opening one pack of 2011-12 Crown Royale Hockey will receive one wrapper-redemption pack
Collectors opening four packs of 2011-12 Pinnacle Hockey will receive one wrapper-redemption pack
Collectors opening two packs of 2011-12 Certified Hockey will receive two wrapper redemption packs
Collectors opening one pack of 2011-12 Limited Hockey will receive four wrapper-redemption packs
