Panini America Asks: ‘Who Drew?’ ID these NBA Sketch Artists for a Chance to Win

December 12, 2012

Panini America 2012-13 Limited Basketball Sketch Main

Late last summer during the 2012 Rookie Transition Program and 2012 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot, respectively, Panini America officials asked several of the most talented young stars in the league to show off their artistic talents by handcrafting their best off-the-cuff sketches.

Presented below is an art gallery of sorts showcasing just some of our favorites. One thing you’ll notice about these one-of-one masterpieces, however, is that we’ve removed the identity of each artist. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to correctly identify as many of the artists as possible for a chance to win some sweet prizes from our recently completed Panini Unwrapped episode featuring 2012-13 Limited Basketball.

We’re not going to leave you hanging without any clues to go on, though. We’ve provided the names of each artist below, including some that have multiple works of art in the gallery. Simply match the correct piece of art to the artist who created it. Those with the most correct will be entered to win a box of 2012-13 Limited Basketball or some of our best hits from the Unwrapped episode.

Enjoy the exhibit and good luck. All entries are due by 12 p.m. (CST) on Friday. And we’ll wait to approve all entries until the contest ends.

Now, for the list of names:

Anthony Davis
Kyrie Irving
Jonas Valanciunas
Fab Melo
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
Kenneth Faried
Thomas Robinson
Derrick Williams
Bradley Beal
Andre Drummond
Kemba Walker
John Henson
Enes Kanter
Tristan Thompson

And . . . the must-see gallery:

    I would love to know who thought of doing this at the Panini HQ? Intriguing idea and something I wouldn’t have thought of. Interested in hearing about this..

    • December 15, 2012 11:08 pm

      Thanks for the question. It’s just something we thought of a few years ago to maximize the time we spend with the rookies at the NBA, NFLPA and NHLPA rookie photo shoots.

      It’s a lot of fun for the players and really sheds some light on their personalities. And some of them can flat-out draw!

    Congrats to all the winners and thanks again to everyone for participating. Winners, we’ll be in touch soon to get your mailing addresses.

    Best regards and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

      I totally agree. I will always support Panini since they truly understand collectors and stay in touch with us. It’s not just about winning cards and free gifts, but the information, box previews, checklists, and redemption updates that make this site and company so great. Thank Panini.

        December 17, 2012 11:33 am

        Well said, the box preview videos are my favorite part of this site. They let you see what you can expect when breaking as well as give you a good idea of what the cards look like, and they crack me up with the corny (no offense) one liners and jokes. I always look forward to watching ne unwrapped videos.

  25. December 17, 2012 11:06 am

    Many different ways to say it but in the end it all means the same thing: PaniniAmerica is HANDS DOWN, the absolute best!!… Thanks for all u do!:-)
