A box consists of 24 packs with 8 cards per pack and 2 Memorabilia or Autographs. When I purchase a box like this I typically end up with two memorabilia cards and a few inserts to show for it. Needless to say I would hope that this box that Panini America sent to Hobbykings.com for us to review would be different. Alas it really wasn't.
If you wish you can view the video of the break here with pictures of what was pulled and what you could expect to come after the jump. Also I do realize that in the video I referred to the parallels as Starburst instead of Ice Breakers & Rink Collection...they're essentially the same thing I'm just used to the baseball version. Also below the Tough Times and Breakthrough cards pulled were not scanned but should be in the video.
What we pulled:
Ice Breakers RC or Rink Collection
Team Pinnacle - Henrik Sedin/Steven Stamkos
Game Night - Stephane Da Costa
Threads Prime /50 - Jonathan Toews
In the end not that much, not overly fun to break, at least this time but perfect for the collector on a budget, someone looking to get their kids started in collecting or someone that likes to collect base sets. The photography in the base set is pretty nice though and I believe all base cards are horizontal.
What else is in this product:
Game Night Prime (50)
Game Night Signatures (50)
Fan of the Game Insert and Auto Version (8)
Retro Team Pinnacle Signatures (5 cards) - Cannot find pics of them
Threads/Prime (shown above)/Patches (90)
Starting Six Threads/Prime/Patches (10)
Tough Times Auto (10 -on-card)
Canvas Creations (18)
Pinnacle Black (14)
Pinnacle Captains (20)
Zenith Yours Truly Update (25 - on-card - continuation of last year's Zenith product)
So there you have it. There are some hits to be had just don't expect them to fall at a high rate like you may from some higher priced products.
