    Our Box Break


    Rookie Cards




    The Rookie Cards are designed as thick stock cards with a glossy finish. The team logo is in the center of the card with the word rookie above it. The left side of the card has a posing shot of the player and the right side an action shot of the player. Panini did a great job with the Rookie Card designs. We pulled 4 Rookies: Grant Clitsome, Adam Cracknell, Cory Emmerton, and Eric Wellwood. These cards are numbered out of 899.


    Memorabilia Cards




    The Memorabilia Cards contain a solid colored Jersey Swatch of the player pictured. These cards have a solid white background with a net like picture blended in on the left side. We pulled 4 Memorabilia Cards: Ilya Bryzgalov, Mikko Koivu, Anze Kopitar, and Jordan Staal. These cards are numbered out of 599.


    Dual Memorabilia Cards



    The Dual Memorabilia Cards can contain a combination of Jersey Swatches, Prime Jerseys, Patches, Jersey Numbers, and Hockey Sticks. We pulled 2 Dual Memorabilia Cards in our box. The first was a Matt Duchene Jersey/Prime Jersey numbered 150 out of 150! The second one was the best hit of the box. We pulled a Kyle Okposo Patch/Prime Jersey numbered 5 out of 10!


    Autograph Cards



    The Private Signings Autograph Cards have an amazing look to them with the gold borders and colorful backgrounds. The autographs are signed directly on the card in blue ink. We pulled 2 Autograph Cards: Zach Boychuk and Dustin Penner.


    Final Thoughts
    Panini Luxury Suite is a high end hockey product that yields 8 hits per box. The Rookie and Memorabilia Cards are nicely designed as thick stock cards. The Memorabilia Cards boast a nice combination of Jersey Swatches and Patches. The Autograph Cards look very appealing with its gold bordering. Each box also contains a full player checklist of the 250 cards in the set and the Private Signings Autographs. Panini did an amazing job with the designs of the Rookie Cards and Autographs. The only thing I would change is the look of the Memorabilia Cards. The white background makes the cards look very plain and basic. If the different team colors were used as the background instead, the cards would stand out more. Boxes runs for about $135 to $140 at retail stores and online. This product can be a hit and miss for collectors due to its high price. There are some fantastic cards to pull from this box including highly sought out Rookies of Tyler Seguin and Taylor Hall.

        Nice review Kerwin and sweet looking cards.
        Still collecting Frank Thomas in any uni and HoFer G/U & Auto's.

        I do not trade nor buy at "eBay values", unless a card is so rare that it is unlisted.

            Great review Kerwin. Luxury Suite was a great addition to the Hockey product lineup, but is definitely hit and miss. In this case the Dual Patch #'ed to 10 is a great and also rare pull.

                Great review, I agree the background would look much better with team colors. This is a cool product never the less.
