The Panini Unwrapped Weekend Scavenger Hunt: 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball

May 25, 2013

BRILLIANCE_blog_thumb

Earlier this week, Panini America’s Tracy Hackler and Keith Hower sat down in the Panini Unwrapped studio (also known around Panini America HQ as Conference Room 2) to bust open one box of the new 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball. We’re a few days late with this special episode, but we’re hoping the contents of this break — and the special Knight’s Lance Scavenger Hunt that follows — will more than make up for it.

So after you’ve enjoyed the video, which includes more than its fair share of interruptions and annoying phone calls (who knew double booking one of our conference rooms would cause such consternation?), stick around to find out all the details of the hunt.

OK, now that you’ve watched the video, here’s how you can become eligible to win one of four boxes of 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball as well as the hits pulled from the box in our video. We’ve taken the liberty of hiding an image of the 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball box into one of the galleries linked below. You’re mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find the image of the box and tell us — AS A COMMENT TO THIS POST — in which image you found it.

We’ll wait to approve all comments until after the entry deadline, which is tomorrow, May 26, at 10 p.m. CST, so your comment will appear to you as “pending moderation.” That’s our way of protecting your answers to the Scavenger Hunt so that everyone else can’t see them. To that end, we kindly ask that you keep your Scavenger Hunt answers to yourself until after the deadline. We want to reward those folks who’ve taken the time and effort to find the hidden image.

We’ll then place all correct entries into an online randomizer to select four winners: One will receive one box of Brilliance and the hits from our video break, three more will win a box.

Just to be clear, the image you’re looking for is the box that appears as the lead image in both the Quality Control Gallery for 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball and the Embossing is Boss post. It looks like this:

Brilliance Box

The main image atop those two galleries IS NOT your answer. You’re looking for the box that’s hidden in an image featured in one following galleries. Good luck, and thanks in advance for your participation.

    The image of the box is in the “The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball (82 Images)” gallery and the image is in the Patrick Ewing card where it says “Springfield” in the middle of the card (I believe it is the 28th card in the gallery). The image is in the upper right hand corner where it says Basketball Hall of Fame.

    Panini America 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball QC (28). Took awhile to find it, but there’s something in the middle of the Basketball Hall of Fame logo on that Ewing card that isn’t there on the others, like Robinson, Dr. J, Bird, & Pistol Pete. So I looked closer at that Ewing card, and sure enough, it appears to be a box with a player on it, which must be Kobe.

    “BRILLIANT” video Tracy and Keith once again. I thought the shoutout to the collector that gave some input on the Brilliance design was very cool. Also, again you two had me laughing with the “BRILLIANT” and the Dan Patrick cam part HAHA. Keep up the great posts and product display in the Galleries/Videos. This was a slam dunk and an awesome product! And Keep the Golden State Warriors coming!

    I too was dealing with a “smell” issue–back up in our showerhouses (boys and girls) at my families guest ranch so that caused me to get my answer in later than I would of liked–hope I made it though!

    I have a question what came into my mind a couple of times, so i think it is time to ask it :)
    Do you have any stats or number about how many jerseys Panini used this season to cut them and put them into different products? I think it would be interesting to see the total numbers and the numbers by sports too. (and maybe the stats the which players gave the most jerseys)
