Voters on NFL.com have made their choice. Wide Receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. of the New York Giants is the Week 12 2014 Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week, the NFL announced today. Beckham’s incredible catch captivated sports fans and then some, just one of his 10 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Beckham was selected from five finalists through fan votes on NFL.com. The other Week 12 finalists included Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell, Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill, Philadelphia Eagles kicker Cody Parkey and Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.
In an effort to keep collectors updated on the status of those Panini America redemption cards that are currently being processed, we’ll post a list every week, like the one included in the attachments below, detailing the most recent cards being fulfilled this week.
The following list is intended to inform collectors about which redemption cards from which products are being processed this week. We’ll update this list every Friday afternoon, so stay tuned next week if you don’t see your card here.
Finally, 2014 Black Friday has arrived. While many Americans are packing malls and big-box mass merchandisers in search of great deals on holiday gifts, seemingly just as many collectors are descending upon their local hobby shops or iCollectPanini.com to get in on Panini America’s Black Friday promotion. Indeed, the biggest shopping day of the year is full of seemingly endless possibilities.
But even if you aren’t doing any hardcore shopping today, you can still do some high-quality window shopping. In the gallery below, we offer a world-premiere sneak peek at the first finished cards from Panini America’s upcoming 2014-15 Prizm Basketball. We’ll have plenty more Prizm peeks — and additional product details — to follow in the coming days, but this should deliver an early idea of what collectors can expect from the new installment when it arrives in the next few weeks.
As you prepare to spend this Thanksgiving 2014 with family, friends, food, football and maybe even a little holiday shopping, all of us here at Panini America would like to wish you a heartfelt “Happy Thanksgiving.” As we take inventory of the many blessings in our collective lives, Panini America fans and collectors are high on that list. Thanks for your support throughout the year. We couldn’t do what we do without you — and we wouldn’t want to.
To help offer a little collecting diversion to your Thanksgiving day festivities, we’ve gathered some of the newest autographs that have arrived at Panini America HQ in recent days for something of a visual feast; a collection of ink-graced greatness from recently released and upcoming products that anyone would be thankful to pull.
We love NFL rookies at Panini America. We love interacting with them at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere every summer. We love the fact that with their potential and their performances, they drive sales of every NFL product we make every year. But you want to know who loves NFL rookies as much as we do? Pepsi and football collectors.
Indeed, the folks at Pepsi get just as excited we all do about NFL Rookie performances each week during the season. And that’s exactly why once again this season, for the fourth straight year, Panini America and Pepsi have joined forces to help promote Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week voting and Panini America NFL Rookie Cards.
In just the nick of time, before everyone left town for the Thanksgiving holiday, Panini America’s Chris Barr and Tracy Hackler sat down with four boxes of the out-today 2014 Crown Royale Football for this must-see episode of Panini Unwrapped.

For the fourth straight year, Panini America is about to turn Black Friday into a bona fide sports card shopping holiday at hobby shops across the country. Many dealers across North America have already started the 2014 installment of the phenomenon by opening their stores earlier than ever in anticipation of a huge weekend.
Over the course of the last month, we’ve done our best here on The Knight’s Lance to bring you a front-row seat to everything the 2014 Black Friday set has to offer. After the jump, we provide a series of links recapping our preview coverage. What’s more, we also bring you a pack-by-pack preview of 15 Black Friday we packs we ripped just this morning.
