These Cromalin Proof stickers were the proofs that Panini used to make their regular 1988 Panini NHL sticker set. I bought these from a dealer in Michigan that bought these directly from Panini in Italy. I was only able to get my hands on 243 pieces from this set. Somewhere out there, someone else has the other 163 from this 1 of 1 set. I have close to 60% of the set in my possession. The puzzles in this set were proofed in 1 piece. I only have 2 of them. I have them in one piece but in the collection, they were issued as 2 separate stickers. These are 1 of 1’s so once they are gone, that is it. I have 5 Rookie 1 of 1’s listed and available. The proofs were made on thicker stock Cromalin material which was quite glossy. The backing was white with the sticker number written in felt. This Cromalin material caused stress fractures on each one of the proofs. You will notice this stress as you turn them to the light. I also have some general background templates (2 different kinds) that I did not include in the above numbers. The backgrounds are made of the same Cromalin as the other proofs. Look for them in the scans of the proof set. Enjoy looking through these unique rare stickers. If you want something truly rare from your favorite player, this would be it. Nobody else would own what you own.
Each individual sticker measures approximately 5.4 cm X 6.9 cm (2.13 in X 2.72 in). Some special panels are a little larger.
