The next few weeks in the NHL is going to be fun to watch with the Jets skating again in Winnipeg, a new crop of talented rookies taking the ice and the NHL Premiere Games just a couple weeks away to start the season in Europe. Oh, and there is one other great event happening to start off this NHL season; the release of 2011-12 NHL Artifacts which hits stores today.
Without a doubt this has been a release that collectors have been really excited about. Some comments from fans on our Facebook page as we unveiled the product affirm that fact:
“Think I must order this box right now!”
“The best of the 11-12 season so far!”
“I honestly cannot wait for this product to hit the shelves!!”
We are please to see our fans are excited about the release, but for those on the fence, we wanted to provide a little more reasoning as to why 2011-12 NHL Artifacts is a product you want to spend the weekend cracking. Here are the top ten reasons to bust 2011-12 NHL Artifacts this weekend:
#10 – You can find serial numbered rookie cards of top prospects like Cody Hodgson and Joe Colborne, including Black Autograph parallels numbered to just five copies of both players!
#9 – A deeper checklist with new stars to chase like Bill Ranford and Paul Coffey!
#8 – More patch cards and high-end memorabilia than ever before. Look for a patch, strap, stick or tag card in every other hobby box or better!

#3 – NO UNPLANNED AUTOGRAPH REDEMPTIONS! Our Athlete Relations Team acquired every autograph we needed for this set so that every standard autograph card can be found LIVE in packs.
#2 – All new autograph memorabilia variation to the base set. You can find some huge stars in this set like Gretzky, Roy, Sakic, Lemieux, Crosby and Ovechkin.
