After seven long seasons away, the Titanium brand will return to the ice with Panini’s early-June release of 2011-12 Titanium Hockey. The product will deliver one autograph or memorabilia card in every pack. It also marks the return of Titanium Rookie Cards numbered to the featured player’s jersey number.
“Each pack of Titanium Hockey will provide collectors with either a memorabilia or autograph card from some of the biggest rookies and stars in the league,” Barr said. “The return of NHL Rookie Cards serial numbered to each player’s jersey number could provide some of the most exciting pulls of the hockey card season thus far.”

Former Major League Baseball player Dmitri Young spent many years putting together one of the world’s finest baseball card collections. The Dmitri Young Collection consisted of only cards graded Gem Mint PSA 10. Using SCP Auctions, Young sold his collection this past week and scattered the once unfathomable grouping of cards to collectors everywhere.
Of the nearly 500 baseball cards listed, 10 of them went for over $50,000US each. The most impressive figure was attained by the PSA 10 1955 Topps Roberto Clemente, which closed at $432,690US. In second place, a PSA 10 1954 Topps Hank Aaron sold for $357,594US.
But what about Young himself? Did anyone care about the cards of Dmitri Young which were graded as PSA 10 and were also a part of this collection? Here are those results:
1991 UD FINAL EDITION #7F DMITRI YOUNG PSA 10 – $63.60US
1992 UD MINOR LEAGUE #274 DMITRI YOUNG PSA 10 – $66.00US
1992 UD #58 DMITRI YOUNG PSA 10 – $110.40US
For those who couldn’t afford the big cards in Young’s collection, winning an auction for a rookie card of the man who put the collection together may have been the next best… and coolest thing.
