I loved this as Joe opened up the packs like we did in the old days. I am so glad I got to see him play live.. what a treat that was.. good job Panini!
A funny thing happened on the way to busting 2013-14 Titanium Hockey for this special edition of Panini Unwrapped: Hockey Hall of Famer Joe Nieuwendyk walked in. The three-time Stanley Cup champion, 1999 Conn Smythe Trophy winner and 2002 Olympic gold medalist arrived at Panini America HQ this morning to sign his 2013-14 Crown Royale Hockey Silhouettes cards. When the legend finished signing, he was nice enough to open a few boxes of 2013-14 Titanium Hockey with Alex Carbajal and Tracy Hackler.
During the break, Nieuwendyk discussed, among other things, watching Jaromir Jagr play in his native land and the evolution of hockey cards. You can watch the must-see video after the break. 2013-14 Titanium Hockey is available now across Canada and exclusively in the U.S. at iCollectPanini.com.
